How to Be a Healthy, Positive, and Mindful Traveler

The Academy format is that *all* classes are online. Get a new 60-minute Livestream class on how to optimize your life Every. Single. Day.
If you can’t make this class live, or would like access to this class and all the others (over 100 and counting) in the en*theos Library, you can sign up—it’s a bit like Netflix for Optimal Living. :)
Curious what I’ll be talking about? Here’s a sample of the Top 10 Big Ideas I’ll be covering…
1 | It’s Not F*** My Life— it’s FMP!
When you hit the road (or frankly, just leave your house) you have no control over SO many things: the weather, delays, traffic, technology—so work on letting it go. Instead of the very common FML (Fuck My Life), which I think is taking a victim-perspective, I encourage you to choose FMP: Fuck My Plans (which feels pretty empowering to me)!
Things not going how you planned? F ‘em!
Raining outside, flight cancelled, museum closed—FMP! FMP! FMP!
Just do something else! :)
2 | Don’t Forget to Pack Commitment and Flexibility
If you want to stay healthy when you travel, think about it this way: you have a commitment (what you choose to do to be healthy) and then you have to be flexible with how you are able to practice that commitment.
So, let’s say one of your commitments is exercise. Perhaps instead of the 90-minute yoga class you normally do, you are only able to practice for 20 minutes in your room. Excellent!
Work on honoring your commitments however you can. Even 50% is better than nothing at all—plus it keeps you from kicking yourself for “falling off the wagon.”
3 | The Four Keys to Being Healthy
Here are four things I try to incorporate into as many days as possible:
Notice I don’t tell you exactly HOW to do any of these things—that’s up to you.
There are lots of ways to take time for yourself and clear your mind: could be a walk or gardening or tai chi—anything that helps you relax and calm yourself. Next, maybe you hate yoga, but love running. Great—just move your body! For food, create guidelines around what you eat and don’t—whatever works for you. And finally: gratitude. Even if you take just a few minutes and think about 10 things you’re grateful for, you’ll feel better.
Hope to see you there! :)
