I have to
say, I am thrilled that the world seems to be slowly opening up again. There
were definitely some days during the past year or so when I thought I would
jump out of my skin. Although I love my home and being around my family, there
is something to be said about living life on a bigger playing field than your
backyard! The mental stimulation we get from doing novel things and traveling
to new places is not only refreshing and uplifting, it’s good for our brains
One of the
tricky things right now is traveling while COVID-19 is still a public health
threat. Those of us who’ve been vaccinated have an extra level of protection
when we get outside of our homes. I know there are many eligible people who have
not gotten the vaccine, and that’s your prerogative—I am not judging anyone. However,
it’s still super important to take measures to keep yourself and your loved
ones safe and healthy as you venture further out now that some restrictions are
Post-Lockdown Adventures are on My Mind
Recently, my husband, Dr. Daniel Amen, and I took Chloe on a trip to visit colleges. Even though it wasn’t by any means an exotic vacation, it was so much fun to explore places together that we had never been. Being out and about in other states felt so liberating! It made us think about all the great things we want to do this summer before she heads off for her freshman year.
While traveling, it was important to us that we didn’t let down our guard and take risks with our health. Having medical backgrounds, we understand how quickly germs can spread or how easy it can be to give into temptations and become more vulnerable to illness or depleted energy. Fortunately, my husband and I are on the same page with this.
As you get
ready to take a vacation, especially while the pandemic is still going on, I
encourage you to prepare in advance and take these steps to stay healthy so you
can maximize your fun!
Spring is often
a time of new beginnings, and this year it feels particularly poignant and
hopeful. We’ve all been through so much and are ready to heave a collective
sigh of relief. Although we aren’t quite yet there, being able to explore more
of the world around us has become a possibility for most people. I hope
whatever traveling you plan to do is loads of fun, but please, stay safe and
healthy wherever you go!
