Are you trying to eat healthier this year?

If so, I am on the same train as you then! First off, I am trying to accept that being healthy doesn’t mean I need to be PERFECT about my eating and exercise. I know there are days when I will fall off the healthy food wagon or skip a workout. I can’t let that derail my whole plan for a healthier, happier and more active lifestyle and send me down a downward spiral of cheese fries. Instead I’m choosing this eggplant dip! (more…)

I am truly trying to put myself first and focus on my health this year. It’s taken a backseat lately due to a big move, a busy work schedule and lots of travel. It’s always going to be something, so I’ve decided that I just need to be more flexible, less perfect and just get it done instead of overthinking it.

Be Okinawa

A sponsored video post.

Some of you may have noticed my enthusiasm and love for all things Japan.

I don’t know what it is – but it’s a country I could keep visiting again and again because it’s so different from my reality here in North America. I was so lucky to visit for the first time in 2013 and then again in 2016. The people are so incredibly kind and as a solo traveler, I always felt safe.

I have covered Tokyo and Kyoto so far, but I am super intrigued about Okinawa – a region with a cluster of 150 islands just south of Japan’s mainland. It’s perfect for a relaxing beach vacation because of Okinawa’s tropical climate, white sandy beaches and crystal blue water. It’s also a great place to go diving, snorkeling, and fishing.

Okinawa Island is also known for having the longest living people in the world. The local diet features handmade soba noodles, fresh seafood, vegetables and rice. It’s a great place to rest, reset and recharge, while immersing yourself in authentic Japanese culture without all the tourist traps.

‘Life, by Okinawa’ is a series of three videos that feature what this beautiful region has to offer and how it can benefit the physical and mental wellbeing for those who visit.

If you’re planning a trip to Japan in the near future, consider tacking on a beach vacation for a relaxing getaway in Okinawa, especially after a whirlwind visit to Tokyo. Flying time from Tokyo is only 3 hours direct.
