Happy New Year! I am recently back from the most beautiful New Year’s Eve wedding on a cliff in Malibu, California. Pure magic and completely inspiring. It set the tone for 2016. Reflecting on all of the festivities of the holiday season in California, my mind sojourns to holidays spent in Sweden, where amidst crackling fires and candle light, I always make time for a walk in the forest. I love long walks in winter – the sounds of snow crunching, the crisp air and light peeking through towering birches and pine is simply spectacular.
With the color-burst of 4th of July fireworks over the East River (New York), San Francisco Bay (California) and every small Americana town in-between, summer here is officially underway. And with it, vacation season – which doesn’t have to mean unhealthy indulgences. Whether traveling by plane or train; checking into a five-star hotel or the cot in grandma’s spare attic room, there are ways to keep your mind, skin, body and spirit healthy while on the road.Some of my favorite travel must-bring, must-do, wellness-on-the-road tips:
