3 Non-Food Ways to Brighten your Glow While you Travel

3 Non-Food Ways to Brighten your Glow While you Travel

 

In my previous newsletter I talked about how to keep your glow while you travel by doing a few simple pre-travel ‘rituals’. If you missed it, be sure to click here to check it out.

Today, I’m going to give you a few tips to use while you’re traveling to help keep your light brightly shining. And, none of these tips involve changing or altering the food that you eat!

So let’s dive right in.

Travel can be exhilarating, mind-expanding, and freeing, but it can also destroy us mentally, physically, and emotionally. Especially if we’re not properly prepared or don’t take some necessary self-care while on the road. Because it’s not always possible to eat ‘perfectly’ while on the road (although there are ways, which I’ll share with you in the next newsletter), below I have listed some tips that anyone can do anywhere. The stronger your body is physically and energetically, the better your body is able to withstand a not-so-perfect diet.

Here are a few of my top non-food-related travel tips:

1. Unplug and disconnect: this one is super important. It protects your energetic body (which you will learn in upcoming newsletters plays a huge role in the glow that we radiate) and your physical and mental body. Look around your hotel room (or the room you are in right now). How many things are there that are plugged in? Make sure to unplug microwaves, alarm clocks, and any other items that you won’t be needing…especially those that are close to you and your bed. Also make sure to shut off all electronics (computers, e-readers, etc.) and keep your phone away from your head. All of these things are quietly taking a toll on your body. Disconnecting and unplugging will do wonders for the quality of sleep that you get and also how clear-headed and energetic you feel.

2. Flip upside down: during travel, most of us become inactive, too stressed, and spend way too much time sitting (on airplanes, in the airport, in cars, etc.). If you don’t have time to get out for a walk, jog, or a yoga class, make sure to take a minute to flip yourself upside down to get the blood, adrenaline, and feel-good chemicals flowing. If you’re confident enough, you can kick up into a handstand (using the wall or door as your spotter). Or, if that’s not your style, simply lie facing up on the edge of your bed, and let your head and arms fall towards the floor (opening up your heart and reversing the flow of blood). You can also place a pillow under your hips while you sleep to elevate your hips a bit above the heart (which is super restorative for the adrenal/stress glands and hormones) or you can lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor and press your hips up towards the ceiling into a bridge position, holding for several breaths. Whichever position you choose, make sure to breathe deeply, in through the nose and out through the nose.

3. Change your vibe through music: I tend to be someone who strongly feels the energies around me (we are all affected by these energies, whether we know it or not) so after a day of working with 250+ people, it takes quite a bit for me to unwind and calm my nervous system. And for most of us, our nervous systems can get overstimulated while traveling. An overstimulated nervous system can quickly break your body down, dim your glow, and make you feel less than radiant and energetically alive. Music is a great way to quickly shift your vibe (your vibration). There is energy/vibration associated with all music, so it’s best to experiment and pay attention to how different music makes you feel. I have a playlist for when I need to calm my nervous system and just chill or meditate and a playlist for when I need a little bit more pep and feel-good-vibes. I know that as soon as I turn on certain music, I will feel my nervous system start to shift So listen to what your body needs and stream some music through some headphones, your computer, or whatever you have available. This is also a great thing to do while you’re flying.

Each of the things listed above will do great service to changing the way you feel and the way you vibrate. Which also means it’s changing you biochemically (which then changes you physically!). This means you can increase your glow and increase your resilience to a not-so-perfect diet or or travel schedule simply by doing these feel-good things. Try a few and see how they impact your life, your vibe, and your glow.

{….AND, it’s getting closer! Be on the lookout for my first group program of the year! I’ll be sending out more information next week. It’s time to increase your feel-good-vibes and radiate your brilliant glow.}

Sending you plenty of feel-good vibes,
