How To Nurture Yourself on Your Next Getaway — Nina Zapala

How to nurture yourself on your next getaway is a new way to better vacations. What if you began to see vacations as times of nourishment for your body, mind, and soul? Yet how many of us nurture ourselves, really nurture ourselves on vacation? Isn’t there great irony in this? We travel for health and wellness, yet most of us ignore our own well-being.

A New Path to Nurture You

So what if we slowed down instead of being influenced by headlines encouraging whirlwind vacations: “24 Hours in… or “Quick Getaways to… We are bombarded with travel headlines instructing us on how to plan a trip: where to visit, stay, and play. Why not leave behind third-party influences. Who knows you better than you? Ahh, you do — and no offense to the random travel writer- I was one. 😏

One of the best ways to get to know yourself is to be intentional about vacation outcomes. A few ideas:

  • Slow down to fully appreciate what’s right in front of you — be in the moment versus rushing off to the next thing,
  • Monitor negative self-talk — is it positive or negative?
  • Practice gratitude for where you are, the people, culture, food, and natural surroundings

Intentions that make room for soulful learning while embracing more of who you really are along the way. Shifting into new behaviors can make a world of difference while away, and of course, pack up these new behaviors and continue to enjoy the benefits in your daily life.

We must nurture tolerance, collective wisdom, and democracy — anti-apartheid and political leader — Nelson Mandela.

What Benefits Us All

In my opinion, I genuinely believe in moments of frustration, negativity, and overwhelm, we can shift our consciousness — from negative scripts to positive ones. Why not create a self-talk practice that mimics talking to a best friend. We would never speak to a friend like we speak to ourselves. So STOP it! Use loving and kind words without judgment, a more encouraging framework for self-talk. Do you believe this new approach would be nurturing while uplifting your mental health? Yes or no, comment below.

Electronics Mess With Your Energy!

One more thing, instead of being attached to your phone, scrolling your day away, why not try a more disciplined approach. Use your phone 2–3 hours a day instead of 24/7.

And did you know the electronic energy a phone emits messes with your magnetic energy field? Translations it interferes with your intuition, as your higher self can’t receive messages from Divine Intelligence. This is terrible. Your intuition is your inner travel guide, bolstering even more joyful adventures while away. It always directs your personality type to the next grandest adventure, if you let it!

One Last Thought

As you think about your next adventure, intentionally choose to be 100% present and take in the world around you. Enjoy the variety of people waiting in line with you, smile at a stranger, and remember to appreciate those who serve you. Be grateful for the delicious plate of food that sits before you or the gorgeous guestroom that awaits your stay.
