Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:
“Every Monday, I offer a little mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis
In this week’s Mindful Monday video and podcast, while traveling to visit Mama Lewis in Halifax, Waylon shares 4 mindful travel tips.
Bonus mindful traveling tip: I almost never get a phone plan, to get a needed break from using/checking phone, but of course can still use it when on wifi for calls, Google Maps, texting, social/work. ~ Waylon
“There’s a power to traveling I always appreciate. It gets me out of my rut of daily life. I wanted to touch on a few practices that I think are helpful. When we travel, those fresh practices become illuminated—if we let them. And: how can we be helpful when we travel?” ~ Waylon Lewis
Your Mindful Monday Video:
- Pause and appreciate your meals. Be present.
- Support local shops and businesses rather than big chains or box retailers.
- Be conscious of your transportation.
- Don’t let Instagram/social media ruin your travel.
“Number One: When I travel, I suddenly go from being a bit discursive and just eating quickly and whatever I want, whenever I want, to being choosy about where I eat—because I want to enjoy the new restaurants, the new food, or my favorite places, or discover new things…and I wanna make sure I have an appetite for it. So there’s an attitude of appreciation.” ~ Waylon Lewis
Or listen to the podcast:
“Nothing’s wrong with trying to be ethical..! It’s really just delightful.” ~ Waylon Lewis
“That’s the nice thing about Europe: you can really travel by train. Of course, it may take two or three days to get to Scotland or southern Spain, but traveling isn’t just relocating, is it?”
