“Don’t Need to be In Silence and Cross your Legs to Meditate”- How Travel is a Form of Meditation and Can Help You Find Your Own Meditation

IMG_4411

When people think of meditation they think of sitting in silence with their eyes closed and no sound. Meditation to me is relaxing consciously and subconsciously and being aware of your body and your mind. This can be done by sitting down doing nothing, listening to great music while drawing, spending time with family and friends and talking about how you are or dancing your heart ours.

My ways of meditation are laughing, dancing to Latin music, sitting in silence and being aware of my breathing to reduce my anxiety and have a time unplugged from social media. So ask your self what is your way of meditation?

Now you know your way of meditation, time to ad the action of traveling. One of the many reasons I love traveling beside meeting people from all over the world is the temporary detachment from reality, familiar environment, and people. People feel uncomfortable and most cannot take the change. However, I see it as an opportunity to reflect on yourself, grow, learn and feel uncomfortable.

With so many amazing exciting things such as a huge project launch, changing my career over the past 4 months from a part-time interest into my career, traveling from home 1-2 weeks of the month and working from home, it has been an overwhelming change that I didn’t notice until I decided to leave Canada for a month to be with family In St. Lucia I reflect, work on my projects, enjoy the sun and nature. I have cried, I have had anxiety attacks, I have felt depressed, I have laughed, I have smiled, I have exercised, I have worked, I have eaten amazing home cook meals and I have enjoyed the outdoors including sunsets. After all that, one heals, grow and becomes more grounded in them self.IMG_4311_Facetune_22-12-2018-14-48-42

Every time I travel I learn about the country, culture and myself. It is something that no one in school, work or your family can teach you but the world itself.

Traveling, my experiences and meeting so many people has allowed me to learn my way of meditation and respect the ways of meditation for others.

I wanted to share this with you guys hoping that you are able to find a type of meditation that feels like home for you and use it to keep you sane, inspired, collected, growing and be you. I would love to hear what your ways of meditation are and if there is one that is your favorite lately.

Caramel Brown Vest Coat and a Touch of Lepard

I love wool staple pieces. Especially in this crazy weather. Sometimes I can just wear a wool sweater and a light jacket on some winter afternoon s and I feel just right. I decided to take a formal item out of the Shika Chica’s closet today and give it a casual day look feel.

I started off layering with this beautiful camel colored long wool vest from Melanie Lyn. I love the color! Like I mentioned before, I am really trying to redo my wardrobe first starting with the basic staples. I then added my classic Brand Melville cropped ribbed sweater. I wear this top all the time as you can dress it up and down easily., 

For the bottoms, I decided to wear my classic cut off Levis jeans that I adore. I love the snug fit at the waist and the slightly flared bottoms. It helps play down the caramel vest. Now for the shoes, I really wanted something simple, classic and ‘warm’, so I decided to add these Zara leather ankle booties. My motto is wear a heel with an outfit, and it can really give the final touch of classiness that you need to bring the outfit together.

Now we have texture, colour and a sheen we are miss a pattern. What better way to add a pattern then this lepard faux fur hat from my mom’s closet. I love how fun and warm it is. Without the hat, the look would not be completed.
