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…

Before we go over the itinerary that Sam and I used, I’d like to give five general tips about traveling to Mexico City too.
The weather is mostly mild and sunny year round, but the altitude (over 7000 ft above sea level) means it’s windy and sudden storms can take you by surprise— bring easy layers and comfortable tennis shoes.
Don’t try to dress down here. By all means wear whatever you please, but know that Mexico City is very well dressed, basically everywhere. The only place I didn’t see blazers was hiking Teotihuacan’s pyramids.
Many restaurants are wonderful here, but the magic is in the carts. Almost every street cart and bodega is making delicious, fresh meats and tortas. You’ll see tents full of suited lunch break bankers sitting on plastic stools huddled over a plate of steaming al pastor tacos. Trust these tents, and walk up to them as often if not more than you would Yelp a place first.

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.
