Live Life to the Fullest with an Adventure Vacation

Where would you be without a little adventure in your life? We have a tendency to be very repetitious. We get up in the morning, go to work, come home and eventually go to bed after dinner and television. It’s basically the same thing every day. We are comfortable in a boring routine.

Reasons to Take an Adventure Vacation

Steve, a new coaching client, was exhausted. He’d been working more than 14 hour days for months on end – no vacations, limited personal interests, and few social engagements – while launching his own business. In the clichéd tradition of bootstrapping, Steve was doing it all. Intellectually, he knew it was time to slow down. He’d made some good hires and even began handing off projects, but he still felt the competing demand to remain involved in most every aspect. To fight the mounting fatigue, he began working out regularly six months ago – ironically sacrificing personal time (often his sleep time) as opposed to work time – effectively taking on even more. Physically Steve was fine – good diet, good energy – but still...

Travel Adventures Help Relieve Stress

Stress isn’t just something that happens without consequence. The effects of stress are far-reaching and every part of your body will be affected, which is actually pretty scary.

When there is a real or perceived threat, the brain releases a flood of hormones that increase blood flow, heart rate and more. Inherently, stress is not bad for you, it is a biological response designed to help your escape threats. In a perfect world, you would suffer episodes of stress and then your body would return to normal. However, we don’t live in an ideal world. In the less-than-ideal world we live in, your cell phone keeps going off reminding you…
