Under 30 Experiences Fueled My Life

My first adventure to Costa Rica was with Under 30 Experiences ( U30X) which was unforgettable and a feeling that is almost indescribably. Because I decided to travel with U30X all the planning was done for me, I meet new people, and I was able to awaken emotions/feelings that I have been sleeping on.

The travel company basically took all of the stress and tasks away from planning my own trip. Everyday was filled with exciting places to eat, gorgeous views, and outdoor adrenaline packed activities. Some of those activities included zip lining through the rain forest with Sky Adventure, relaxing in the hot springs, hiking up mountains, visiting secret beaches, repelling down water falls with Quepos Canyoning, kayaking, water rafting, yoga, and exploring city areas.

Comfort Zone

There is so much waiting for you outside of your comfort zone! Sometimes we get so complacent in our current position and let fear of failure keep us from going after things that we want.

Searching Within You!

One night in Costa Rica my thoughts were every where as I swung back and forth in my hammock. I reflected on my day and how I wished I had a few more days at the lovely bungalow at Rancho Margot. My thoughts went from what I did that day, when will I visit the lovely Costa Rica again, my love life, my career, family, and my future. My thoughts started racing so much that I placed them on paper, and I now I want to share them with you…

This is where I sat in the middle of the night writing.

The Importance of Seeking Help From a Mental Health Professional

Seeking help from a Mental Health Professional is important because he or she will give you sound advice and unbiased counseling.
Don’t get me wrong, speaking with family and friends can be beneficial when you need a support system, but I have found professional help makes it easier to be open about emotions and addressing things that have taken place.
Some people will attempt to hide and ignore symptoms that point to mental health issues: he or she may be ashamed or don’t know how to handle it. According to Better Health Television, talking to your doctor or mental health professional about emotional difficulties is a positive step toward improving your mental health. A professional can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle. For example, he or she can improve your problem-solving skills, build and increase confidence, help you heal from the past, and set and achievie personal goals.
I recently spoke with a young female in her late 20s and asked her three questions about speaking with a mental health provider; she was glad to share part of her journey.
