Practice Meditating in a Beautiful Spot
Clearing your mind is one of the simplest yet most essential forms of self-care. While traveling solo, you may have a lot on your mind, from arranging transportation to planning out your entire itinerary alone. There are a lot of moving parts when organizing a trip. Once you arrive at a destination, I highly recommend taking some time to stop and just live in the moment. Your solo trip will pass you by quickly, and finding a beautiful spot to meditate is an incredible form of self-care. Find a quiet spot that speaks to you. This could be somewhere along the city’s riverbank, in one of its parks, or along the shoreline at the beach.
Treat Yourself to a Slow, Lazy Morning
Fortunately or unfortunately, we’re so conditioned to always be on the go. Let your solo trip be an opportunity to change that. Take some time to give your body the rest that it needs. If you feel the urge to have every second of your day programmed while traveling, I advise you to take at least one slow, lazy morning – turn off that alarm! Rest will do wonders for your physical and mental health.
Simply Unplug and Unwind
I know, I know, many of us feel completely lost when we are disconnected. But sometimes, disconnecting from the outside world is the best medicine for the mind. Practice a day (or few hours) of self-care by unplugging. Resist the urge to ask for that Wi-Fi password when you head into a restaurant or explore an attraction. I have faith that you can do it, and you will feel so amazing afterward!
