OUTLOOK Magazine – Travel as a Form of Self Development and Creating a Travel Mindset For Everyday Life
One of the topics that I speak of in the magazine is how to create and cultivate a reflection of your travels, whether it’s during the lockdown pandemic, or it’s those moments after a trip you’ve just had. Reflecting on your travels is a form of learning from them, and it’s so important to set time aside to do that because your travels may just have something to teach you. If this is a topic of interest for you, I have created a few posts on this topic such as how to manage wanderlust in uncertain times, how to create a travel oasis at home, how to allow the magic of travel into your life every day, and so much more.

Podcast interview with Travel Blogger Ivana Skoric – Transformative Travel & Manifesting Travel Using Visualization with Maritza Chavez
One of the topics that we spoke about on the podcast “Use That Passport” with Ivana was how to create transformative travel experiences, and how that may look different for everyone. Essentially transformative travel is the intention of wanting to travel in a deeper way that allows you to experience some sort of change or shift, that you can implement into your life, even after the physical trip is over. The benefits of this are extremely positive for your self-development, and in my experience massively important in my own self-development journey to gain clarity, courage, and validation for myself of what it is that I want my life to look like. If you’re also wanting to create your own transformative travel experience for your next trip, check out these transformative travel journal prompts to help guide your mind, intentions, and transformative travel experiences. I created them myself, these are questions that I ask myself, and today they are yours for free.
Another topic we dove into was how to navigate fear around traveling, and I give my advice on how to manage that. The truth is, we all do experience fears and anxieties around travel to some capacity, because when we travel, we put ourselves outside of our comfort zones, literally and metaphorically, so it is completely normal to feel this way.
And better yet there is a way to help yourself and begin your journey to subconsciously rewire your brain to feel confidence when traveling. Download my Traveler Affirmations that I created to help you by repeating these empowering affirmations to yourself whether you’re on a flight, or you’re navigating foreign streets and feeling fears around getting lost. However fear may manifest, you’re set with these traveler affirmations. Download them for free below.
