Wellness, Oneness And Living Fully Roundup

The Wind of Change

As winter approaches – shivering just writing those words – the talk around my office in the last few days has been on vacation. The weather is a preoccupation of most Canadians that I know. They will often start a conversation commenting about the “crappy,” “awesome,” “crazy” or “nice” weather being experienced in the particular moment.

After most of these comments, the follow-up is “wish I was somewhere warm” or “going South this year?” If the weather is “nice,” then a “shoot, why can’t it stay like this all the time?” is the wish. Shivering I am as the chill takes over the air here in Edmonton, Alberta. The Fall heat that friends of mine are posting and talking about on Facebook in places such as Toronto, is not happening this side of Canada.

Kitten In The Skies

Kitten awaiting her next flight – February 2015

Last February, we ‘escaped’ the freezer for three weeks, my daughter, Kitten and I. We travelled to Jamaica where we celebrated my 50th birthday and the family and friends got a chance to meet and play with the baby. It was a good three weeks, some moments better than others as it goes on any vacation.

What was best about it for me is that we opened Kitten’s appetite, I hope, for travel. She did very well on the plane both ways, interacting with fellow passengers and hardly noticed when the planes took off or landed. Unlike several children, same age and older than her, who cried and wailed as their ear drums plugged or fear overtook them, our girl was busy playing on my Tablet or smothering us with kisses.

Regular readers know that on a Friday we have one post, which is this one and it is a Roundup of the Best Posts of the week. The top three, sometimes four, articles that had the most visits and comments are highlighted for you to catch up on what you might have missed or did not have time to leave your thoughts about. This week, the No. 1 article was “Before I Die: 5 Life Lessons For My Granddaughter,” and one of those was that she should continue what we started in February – travel:

Travel far and wide, as much as you can. Never be bounded by borders – not physical or mental ones. Jump in your car and drive to new places on lovely summer weekends. Take a train trip. Go for a boat ride as well. Visit Ghana – the land of your father’s birth. Dance to the beat of Reggae in the country of my birth and be sure to see the Ukraine where your mother made her entry. Fly baby girl!

Read the full article and share your five tips on living well for your child or grandchild in the comments below.

Rising Vibe – Wellness, Oneness and Living Fully

The second most visited and read article this week was “A September To Remember For More Reasons Than One.” Mondays to Thursdays we have two posts each day – one in the morning that sets the tone for the day and highlights an item or two of news related to our conversation.

In this case, the second place post, was an introduction of something or someone interesting. Neelma Tashfeen was the person being introduced – our newest Contributor and a very beautiful young woman, inside and out, from Pakistan. She was making her dΓ©but here with her first article “Wellness And Pakistani Women: It’s A Class Thing” and writing about this, my intention was to remind you and myself that there is beauty in everyone and everything. Check out Neelma’s first post and Subscribe to receive updates of her future posts.

The third most read post of this week has an almost invisible connection to the two earlier ones; that is if you are attuned to the energy of our writings here as well as to that permeating through the world at this time. Wellness, Oneness and Living Fully are emerging themes across our world and they are quietly influencing relationships, careers, nutrition and even travel. “4 Insidious Risk To Women’s Wellness That You Need Know,” brought to the forefront physical and emotional issues affecting the lives and wellness of women today.

Wellness Tourism

As the world turns, more information is available to help women create a more balanced, wholistic and fulfulling lives wherever they live and within their current means. Not all of us can jump on a plane and take off to one of the exotic wellness resorts featured in this article published in Travel Weekly. Wellness tourism is one of the fastest growing sub-sectors of the tourism industry, one that has many faces and possibilities for women including those with a lot of money and those who cannot afford a luxurious or expensive getaways. This website has information for those who fall somewhere between.

“‘Stagnation is what I fear; adventure and failure are far, far better” Ottoline Morrell.

Those who cannot afford to buy a ticket to relaxation can and must find inexpensive ways to de-stress or simply chill. As I suggested to my granddaughter in that post – jump in your car, take a bus or a train and just go somewhere, anywhere for a few hours, see the sights and allow your Soul to roam and bask in the beauty of the place however near or far it is from home.

Neelma mentioned in her article that wellness is not a right upheld by the society or authorities for working class women of Pakistan. However, even for them and working class women, all women anywhere, wellness is a birthright and every woman can and must in her own way claim it.

I hope you do just that this weekend. Here in Canada, it is another long weekend for us – Labour Day Weekend – and I most certainly will find ways to greater wellness over the next few days. Do check out my upcoming FREE Webinar for Young Women, when one of the several issues to be discussed is how to lead a well life on no budget. Share it with a friend who you feel might benefit from such a conversation. [tweetthis]Check out this FREE Webinar for young women, under 35, and get some life-changing tips![/tweetthis]

Be blessed and be blessings to everyone you come into contact with today, until we meet again tomorrow.

Namaste.

  7. Oh how I wish we could go on a vacation or trip right now. It’s much needed by our whole family but we just haven’t been able to make it work in the last 2 years. I’d love to head to Jamaica!

    We should give ourselves time to escape, even if it’s for a short time, even if it’s not too far away. It’s important that we give ourselves time to breathe.

    1. Ms Claudette

      You are so right Elizabeth! Thanks again for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  9. I like the idea of just taking a train ride somewhere for a while, just go get out. You don’t have to have much money just to change the scenery up a bit! Awesome post!

    1. Ms Claudette

      Thank you for the compliment and for stopping by. A quick change of scenery is always good, just seeing somewhere different from your own four walls, πŸ™‚

  10. victoria

    I love to reading this article. I love to travel with the families but for now we need to stayed here

    1. Ms Claudette

      Also good to pause a bit but hopefully the trips will begin again soon enough! πŸ™‚

  11. Traveling is the best experience in life. That’s the best advice you can give to your granddaughter. There’s so much in this world to see and experience. We love to travel and we can’t stop. I do agree that not many people have the same opportunity as us but it is possible if they find a way to make it happen even if its short term travel.

    1. Ms Claudette

      I could not agree with you more on that score! Thanks for pausing in your travels and stopping by! πŸ™‚

  12. This was such a great article! Now I’m in the mood to travel somewhere, get away before the winter snow hits us…

    1. Ms Claudette

      I know!!! It is so chilly here already!!!

  13. Jamaica sounds amazing. Great to be able to let Kitten see the world from such an early age.

    1. Ms Claudette

      We hope to continue doing that. Thank you!

  14. Very nice week. I enjoy traveling also.

    1. Ms Claudette

      Thank you! Hope you had a great week!

  15. Great round-up. That’s also so great you got to take your “Kitten” on a trip, and that she’s good on a plane. We haven’t ventured anywhere with all three boys yet I’m itching to take them on a plane, but the expense and how wild they are is holding us back. Hopefully, next year

    1. Ms Claudette

      Take the plunge Shann! πŸ™‚

  16. I would love to travel more in the future but in the meantime I will try to just chill at home. Stress is the enemy!
