In this week's episode, we chat about the importance of traveling as a self- care strategy. Listen as we talk about how travel heals the mind, body and soul, tips on how to travel internationally and traveling solo, and how to advocate for your self- care needs with your employer.
Dive in as we discuss wild and real experiences of our own and the lessons learned, and the safe possibilities of traveling during COVID times. We deserve to be taken care of and let us know if you are interested in attending an international retreat planned by...us! Please check out Frantzces’ other podcast @chronicles_abroad. #plug
Key takeaways from this episode include:
1. We acknowledge that traveling is a privilege. Yes, you need
to consider your current profession and lifestyle. Now let’s shift
your mindset: Can you create a sabbatical policy of your own? There
are affordable ways to travel.
Research the options that will make traveling work for you. Discover the world travel culture. Do not let the limited western world view and assumptions prevent you from learning about the rest of the world.
2. Travel will demystify what the world looks and feels like looks like and it humanizes the experience for you. People are generally good people and are kind and genuinely generous with travelers. Don’t let your Aunt Candice divert you from fulfilling your travel dreams.
3. Reconnect with yourself, reset and reconnect, and adjust. Travel is a great self-care option for social workers, therapists, and healers. It gives us the ability to not feel obligated to other people while we take care of ourselves. “Get your spa on” oversees because the services are cheaper and of better quality. Treat yourself!
4. Travel can also be hard. You may be faced with adversity and undesirable experiences. These hardships experienced are tests of your resiliency and strength. Try to focus on the lessons learned and the positive experiences and personal growth.
5. How can you work from abroad? FYI. You can work from “home” in Thailand and eat a fresh and full meal for $1. Pause and let that sink in concept sink in. You may even be able to get an apartment with a pool and amenities to your liking.
6. Start small within your backyard. Get your feet wet by traveling domestically either solo or with others. Explore in more familiar places first to practice doing things alone and looking for deals. Get referrals from others that have already traveled internationally. The point is...just do it!

Until next time, remember to live, laugh, love, and keep it real.
