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.
Take the time to slow down, think back on past journeys, and fill re-inspired by those moments that were etched in your memory.
What can you learn about those moments and what about those travel moments made them so special and unforgettable?

Podcast interview with Travel Blogger Ivana Skoric – Transformative Travel & Manifesting Travel Using Visualization with Maritza Chavez
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.

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 confident when traveling.
