Travel insights from David Pritchard, health & performance coach at Apple Leisure Group

Why Wellness Matters

Life is short and should be lived with wellness in mind. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. You’ll want to feel your very best as you’re working on creating the ultimate vacation for your clients.

Embarking on a wellness journey is a process of searching for the appropriate "tools" to make you a healthier and happier person. It's important to discover your own effective methods to use these "tools" for continued growth and development. Here is a list of wellness activities to inspire you to implement a healthy lifestyle that focuses on wellness:

  • Connect with other travel agents at speed networking session! How much fun will it be to meet and connect with fellow agents?
  • Shop at local farmers’ markets for healthy choices like-fresh produce, fruit and other new surprises
  • Create a personalized workout plan at your local gym
  • Yoga is an easy way to help reduce stress, align with spiritual wellness and maintain fitness
  • Donate blood to those who need it
  • Get a soothing massage, you deserve it
  • Design a personalized hike with friends and family
  • Ride a bike and reward yourself with a healthy smoothie
  • Core values matter; why not develop your own?
  • Receive local spa treatments and learn when meditation will work best for your schedule and lifestyle
  • Alter your mind to a fresh perspective and focus with inspiration from a good book.
  • Indulge in tasty (and healthy) treats, everything is fine in moderation, so enjoy your wellness journey
  • Reflect. Keep a journal on your daily and weekly goals to help you stay on track

Wellness is different for everybody. We embrace and support where your journey will start for you. I hope each and every one of you find something to be inspired by in the list. Your clients will appreciate the fresh focus, perspective and dedication radiating from your improved wellness.
