A day of wildlife contrasts in Costa Rica on our walk in Manuel Antonio National Park. We saw endangered white faced cappucins playing, three toed sloths, a huge scorpion, raccoons, this adorable deer and then a huge snake eating a lizard 🐍. We walked through the rainforest to a marvellous white sand beach and swam in the warm ocean. A magical day in untamed that I will never forget.
While travelling provides memorable days like this, we can capture some of the joy and wonder by adventuring in our daily lives. Pleasant activities that relieve stress, inspire, are fun, stimulating or challenging are psychologically beneficial. These need prioritising regularly, and not just when we are on holidays or away from home. Wonderful quality time with friends and loved ones, as well as good self care.
