Not only do I love to travel but it’s also become a big part of my work and career.
It’s great to see new places and be meeting new people, but often people ask me “how do you do it?” Mostly I smile, because to me, travel is such a big part of my life that I don’t really think about how sometimes it can be chaotic.
We all have an element of life that can feel overwhelming sometimes, even if it’s wonderful. I’m sure parenting can be like this, or being a nurse. Every one has an aspect of their life that, while wonderful the vast majority of the time, it can have moments that can make you anxious. For me traveling is wonderful, fun, and so humbling. But very occasionally it can be overwhelming to have to be somewhere with a tight timeline; which is often the case when touring.
It’s great to be in so many new places. However, sometimes a hotel room just doesn’t feel as homey as the living room that may be 1,000+ miles away. So when I’m out on the road seeing some of the most beautiful places and I start to miss home or get a little overwhelmed I try some the these techniques!
Take a deep breath. Nothing feels as good as taking a few deep breaths to help ground you.
