Why I love travelling on my own!

Updated: Jun 14, 2019

Be on your own and leave it all behind!

This week I returned from a one week retreat in Italy. There I met lots of beautiful women that opened up about their lives. Managing the challenge of running a business while balancing this with family life and personal time. Some had to deal with life-threatening health issues and the loss of their loved ones. It was a great opportunity to truly share with and listen to each other as an important step to heal and connect.

Then magic unfolds and gives overcoming shame and loneliness.

We danced, sang, practiced yoga, ate, hugged and meditated together.

I haven’t cried and laughed at the same time so much for a very long time. Waves of deep deep gratitude &  humbling flushed over me.

The level of connection to myself as seen there I haven’t experienced before. Using all the tools I have gathered over the past years by the meanings of yoga, soul-based coaching and embracing my divinity.

This has been a true experience of seeing each other and honoring the person I am. In my wholeness and imperfection. The breathtaking nature and the great attention to detail when the owner designed the retreat place, not too mention the food, did the rest.

I loved to be in my room, on a walk or outside just on my own as much as being in company with others and noticing how we all became more and more balanced, giving and comfortable in receiving.

During this time I:

Experienced more inner peace.

Gained clarity on what makes me happy

Deepened the relationship with myself

Having these impressions still fresh in my body, mind & soul I am aware that they might fade away. Some faster some slower.

How can we treasure and access these positive intentions and habits? Here are my tips:

  • Pause when you notice familiar triggers and old habits and breathe

  • Download the songs you have heard during your stay and listen to them any time

  • Draw pictures on how you feel during your stay and pin where you can see them

  • Get the herbs or flowers you have smelled and tasted

  • Journal during your stay and read your notes you have madeSmell the sun cream or the soap you have used

  • Stay in touch with people you have met there

Remember what gave you peace during your stay. No or less:

Phone time?Checking emails?Social media?If yes, make it a habit and reserve time without your devices during the day!

This is not about regretting that this time is over! It is a reminder of the relaxation, connectedness or whatever it was for you. You have filled up your mental bank account. Keep it.
