How uncovering new activities in new places uncovers a new you!

Have you done the Mexican all-inclusive beach thing?  How about that condo in Florida?  Maybe a cruise around the Caribbean?  You’ve probably tried all of these, and more, and for some reason keep going back to them year after year.  But how many new experiences will you really discover by returning to Myrtle Beach or Rawdon for the tenth time?  And once you get back from these repetitive holidays where everyone does the same thing, don’t you notice after about 3 days you feel stressed out after a vacation?  The reason: you didn’t really release while you were down there.  You took yourself away from the tension, but you didn’t take the tension away from you.  What’s really needed is to rejuvenate through travel.

What does this mean?  Not only changing your surroundings, but also changing your mind and physical state.  Taking a break should not just be five days away from work.  It should also renew your energy while you discovering new places, people, and activities.  Don’t just shut down… stimulate your mind-body connection!

Yes, we can all feel that it’s good for the mind, body, and soul to just relax lazily on the beach.  But those who really understand how we function and what promotes good health know something you don’t.  In short, add yoga and meditation to supercharge that vacation; the effects will run deeper and last longer.  It’s like adding a turbo boost to your holiday.

Vacationers who meditate and/or practice yoga during travel are less prone to depression and anxiety, according to recent scientific study.  There’s a stronger, more tangible, and enduring benefit to a person’s physical and psychological well-being, especially when done away from home.  Imagine combining the cleanest air, the healthiest food, the purest water, the serenity of a holiday… with cleansing exercise?  What could be healthier than that?!

Among the significant and measurable benefits of meditation and yoga during vacation:

  • better stress response
  • improves the immune system
  • changes in how people view their lives
  • increased productivity at the office
  • 82% of small-business owners reported increased job performance
  • improvements observed long after the vacation ends (up to 10 months later!)

Researchers also point out how “impressive” they find the changes in such a short time spent in a relaxing environment.  There is a clear and quantifiable change in demeanour and bodily function.

Want to disconnect “for real”?  Go somewhere you’ve never been, try something you’ve never tried, and expose your inner being to new sensations.  That’s a TRUE escape!  That’s how you rejuvenate through travel!
