How to Make the Most of Summer Vacation

Need a vacation? We all do. Time to relax, time to reflect, time to be [a little] irresponsible. But I always seem to return home needing another vacation to recover. Mostly because I try to do everything while traveling— see the sunrise, trek a mountain or two, snorkel, sightsee, sip on a poolside piña colada… the list goes on. Often times, my itinerary is so packed-full my “vacation” is not exactly restful.

That feeling inspired my latest article for the Chalkboard Mag. Sometimes, we all need a little reminder on how to make the most of vacation— how to unwind, relax and reflect— while still taking advantage of new adventures. Head here for my travel checklist on how to remain in the moment while away.
