Are you about to embark on a long-term journey? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve put together 30 days of wellness activities for long-term travelers. From yoga to meditation, these are the perfect ways to stay healthy and happy while traveling.
We hope this guide will help keep your energy high as you explore new places!
Day 1 – Yoga
There’s no better way to start your day than with yoga. Not only does yoga help you stay flexible and strong, but it can also really improve your mood.
Even if you’re traveling on a budget, there are still plenty of ways to get into the practice of yoga! YouTube is full of excellent practices that will have anyone feeling like they’ve found their zen in no time at all.
Day 2 – Meditate
Meditating can sometimes seem intimidating, but it’s actually quite simple. All you have to do is sit down in a quiet place and clear your mind of all other thoughts. Try setting the alarm for five minutes and then focus on breathing slowly as the noise around you melts away into silence!
If this doesn’t work for you, try meditating with a guided app. Headspace is one of the best, and it’s free!
Day 3 – Go for a hike
Nature is a great way to get back in touch with yourself. Try and find the most secluded spot you can and listen to nothing but your thoughts as you walk.
Day 4 – Write in your journal
It’s important to stay honest and real with yourself as you travel. So grab some paper and write down all those things you want to process or remember!
