Happy summer!  This month, I want to share with you an article I wrote for Illumine Magazine's summer Travel & Adventure issue!

In it, you'll learn how to use the wisdom from positive psychology research to plan your best adventure yet!  Specifically, you'll learn how to boost your well-being by savoring your travel experience at all three stages - planning, on your trip, and long after your return.  Also, I offer strategies on how to sequence the highlights of your trip in your itinerary, using peak-end rule, to assure you carry forward the best memories into the future.

You can read it online by clicking here.  If you're in Chicagoland, be on the look out for the issue at your local yoga or fitness studio.

Enjoy these long, lovely days of summer - get outside and play a little every day!


Savoring boosts our well-being by deepening gratitude, increasing positive emotions, enabling mindfulness, and augmenting meaning in life.
