Betsy’s Travel Experience and Business Updates

TravelIn case you are interested, I’d like to share with you some of my enlightening experiences traveling through Latin America as well as my business updates. For the past 3 months, my family has been traveling abroad in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We are currently back in the states transitioning back to the rat race, but I’ve had some enlightening thoughts that are amazing reminders for all of us.

First of all, if you have any urge to travel abroad but are nervous due to various reasons (family, job, $, etc), I want to encourage you to follow through with this passion.  It is 100% worth it!  Our two children, Mason (2 years) and Sierra (5 years), adapted beautifully.  My daughter, who is shy and worried what everyone thinks about her, was forced to come out of her shell. She now speaks some Spanish and has friends from all over the world.  For the entire three months, my kids did not ask for tv or toys!  They were too busy playing, swimming, and sleeping.  Overall, I feel like these shared experiences are irreplaceable memories that have bonded our family forever.

My next point is that our journey reminded me to keep my life simple and enjoy what everyday has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, now that we are home, I am thrilled to have a washer and dryer, dish washer, cell phone, food choices beyond rice and beans, house without hundreds of insects, and a variety of stores with everything you need at your fingertips. However there is something to be said about living a simple life without a million choices and a packed schedule.  Instead of multi-tasking every minute of my life, I started to truly live it and enjoy it.  Most Costa Ricans and Nicaraguans do not have much material things, but they are the happiest people that I’ve ever met.

I am eager to jump back into my work, but I feel blessed to have these experiences so I can maintain a healthy balance in my life.  I am now living in New Jersey full time and hopefully traveling abroad with my family for a few months every winter. In New Jersey, I will be teaching some yoga classes and doing more personal training along with my usual nutrition services.  For my old nutrition clients and anyone interested in my services, I am still providing nutrition consultations (via phone) throughout the US.  My Nutrition Workbook & Resource Guide (Nutrition Simplified) and 9 Day Natural Detox Program are always available nationwide too.  As for new projects, I am making an awesome recipe book and in the process of publishing my workbook.
