If you are like me and need to travel a lot for work, it can greatly effect your lifestyle. For me especially, my mood is greatly affected by my self image. Traveling is all about comfort. If you are stressed about other things or unhappy with your own self image, your experience could turn out quite miserably. I often found while traveling (until recently) that I was constantly stressed and unhappy.
This prompted me to do some self-searching to figure out the root of my unhappiness. I started noticing it in the mirror of the many airport restrooms that travelers such as myself frequent. It was my self image. I was unhappy with how my body looked in the mirror. It was subconsciously affecting my entire mood.
It was when I came to this realization that I knew a change had to be made. I contacted a close friend of mine in Illinois. Coach Kimmy in Chicago, IL was a close friend of mine and a great personal trainer. She works with all sorts of people, ranging from kids bootcamps, to adult personal training, for people like myself.
After 2 workouts with her, I was already feeling better. After 4 I could start to see a difference. She was very humble throughout the entire experience and said that my progress was a reflection of my desire to achieve rather than her expertise. I tend to think otherwise!
Anyways, this was my experience with bettering myself as well as my traveling experience.
