Growing up, we watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade every year. Since we are one hour behind NYC, the parade started at 8am. I rarely woke up that early, but it was always recorded or already playing when I did wake up. My dream was just to go to the parade and watch it live. Instead, my first experience was walking in it. To have your childhood dream one upped by your own self? It’s pretty extraordinary.
I have been quiet on the post front for a variety of reasons. I want to post something, but my content just isn’t flowing like I would like. In large part, it’s due to my job(s). I work in education as a Speech-Language Pathologist and I’m overloaded without enough time to do my job. I bring it home and it leaves no time for blogging…and that’s a bummer.
You really don’t want to miss out on anything exciting, but especially my Monday Morning Travel Facts. Don’t let #FOMO creep up on you Monday afternoon wishing you had access to whatever fun, research-backed fact I throw at you.
One of the biggest routines that gets overlooked for myself is skin care. At the end of a very long day, the last thing I want to do is go through my typical routine. Sometimes I can barely get my makeup off before I’m ready to crash. This is an awful idea.
Along with travel comes many stressors, unpredictable moments, and many things that are simply out of your control. You may be around numerous people for an extended amount of time and not get much “me” time. You might get out of your normal workout, yoga, meditation routine. All of these things can slowly chip away until you’re no longer enjoying yourself at full capacity.
