So, you’ve made it to my “About Me” page and are now wondering how I would describe myself. Shucks. Going on and on about my personal life is not a strong point of mine. Through my 22 years of life experience, I’ve figured out that I’m much better at asking questions than telling stories. Here is what what I will say: if you’re interested in how and why to stay healthy while traveling, this is the blog for you.
My goal is to help every single one of my readers maintain a sense of vibrant energy while on the road. I want to make sure each reader is ready to take the world by storm. And I want my advice to be flexible enough so that traveler can live a healthy lifestyle no matter the situation: business traveling, backwoods backpacking, nomad traveling, weekend road-tripping or expat living.
Conquering your personal health will help you to always have clarity of mind and loads of energy! There are three important keys to a healthy lifestyle: nutrition, exercise and stress management. Tackle these and you'll be well on your way to personal wellness.
Why should you listen to me?
I’m not someone with loads of academic background in health and decades of travel experience. In fact, I’m just a 22-year old recent graduate with a bachelors degree in tow, living in Izmir, Turkey and teaching English at a private high school. I didn’t formally study anything health related in college - instead, I focused on reading, writing, and building ideas by double majoring in business and history at a small liberal arts school in West Michigan.
I am, however, someone who is deeply passionate about both health and travel. I read extensively on both topics and, more importantly, live a daily existence that combines the two. Ever since going on my first trip to Disney World at the age of five, I’ve traveled at least a couple times every year; and ever since my Dad refused to let me drink coke, instead forcing me to eat almonds after soccer games (okay, a bit of an exaggeration), I’ve been clued in to the world of nutrition.
So head on over to my blog and check out it out for yourself! Take that first step in improving your health while on the road today!
