A wellness vacation is an excellent opportunity to incorporate new and mindful activities into your daily routine. Consider activities like yoga, meditation, or water aerobics, which promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve mental well-being. Many wellness resorts and retreats offer specialized programs tailored to all experience levels, allowing you to learn new techniques and establish a regular mindfulness practice. These practices will continue to benefit your overall well-being long after your vacation ends.

Simple Tips for Mindful Eating
If you have the space, consider starting a small garden in your yard or even indoors on your kitchen counter. Growing your own food is sustainable and can help you connect more deeply to what you feed your family. What’s more, being able to harvest produce at its peak means more nutritional value and flavor per bite. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of growing plants from seeds, start by buying a few pots of herbs, such as basil, chives and mint.

Cost-Cutting Vacation Tips
After more than two years of the pandemic, you’re probably eager to get out and explore the world. But as desire and demand for travel skyrockets, so do the prices to get there. Here are some great ways to maximize your savings, so you can make your dream vacation a reality:
Packing Tips for a Great Hike
Hiking fast isn’t necessarily about clocking your best time or the bragging rights, it’s about experiencing more goodness with friends and family. More alpine lakes, more craggy peaks, and more wildflowers. More high fives at the summit, more victory snacks, and more unexpected patches of wild blueberries.
Inflation and Summer Travel Plans
After two years of restrictions, summer road trips are top of mind for those looking to get out of town. With rising inflation showing no signs of breaking, soaring automotive costs, including gas prices, repairs, rental cars, and auto insurance, are threatening to put a damper on summer fun. This is why many consumers are preparing their budgets now to find ways to save.
Finding Inspiration with Janet Dunn
Janet spends a lot of time hiking and walking in the woods. “The woods is where I hear God more clearly. I feel this is where I commune with God the best. I have learned to really listen to my soul in the quiet of the forest, sitting on my meditation pillow, or just being quiet with myself”, reflected Janet. She also believes that it is vitally important to have a tribe of people that listen, share, and pray together.
