Combat the Relentlessness of Being the Boss, Being a Mom, and Being in Charge — Book a Trip!
Last summer, we toured five countries and ten cities to celebrate our twin’s milestone transition from single to double digits.
It took research, planning, financial commitment, and coordination with their school. Here’s why it was worth it.
But first, let me back up a sec and share some of the best advice we received when we found out we were pregnant with twins ten years ago: Start traveling with your babies as soon as you feel comfortable…then keep going.
We’re Still Going…
And what I learned over the last decade can be summed up like this — having adventures with the people you love most is how to love life. This is a fundamental tenet of my coaching practice, and I’ll share why.
But before I reveal the details, if you’re feeling any resistance or already telling yourself why this won’t work for you, let’s take a moment to address and release those limiting beliefs.
You can see the world with your kids, even if…
- you aren’t wealthy
- you aren’t self-employed
- your career is important to you
- you know nothing about travel hacking
- they won’t remember it anyway
- it’s too overwhelming to plan and take life-changing trips
Good? Ok, so back to how I use travel in my coaching practice. My clients are often planners. They are constantly orchestrating everything for their families, careers, and communities.
I help them use travel to get out of their heads and into the world. Remember what I said above about having adventures with the people you love most?
Most people intuitively get that it’s quality time, sharing meaningful moments:
- Eating together.
- Swimming in a beautiful sea.
- Hiking under a waterfall.
- Collecting shells.
- Touring a museum.
- Exploring history.
- Stopping for a sunset.
