Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I want to talk to you about Ocean City – a mindful travel paradise.
Ocean City is a resort town in the U.S. state of Maryland between the Atlantic Ocean and Isle of Wight Bay. It features miles of beach and a wooden boardwalk lined with restaurants, shops and hotels. It has recently made Trip Advisor list of the nation’s Top 10 beaches. It’s three-mile boardwalk was voted by the Travel Channel as one of America’s best! Ocean City, Maryland is filled with natural beauty. What makes me crave this beautiful place is the beautiful sunrise and sunset. The vast ocean lures me to the beauty within and helps me anchor only to the moment.
As human, we’re always chasing that ever-elusive feeling of awe and have high expectations for every adventure. We want to feel fully absorbed in these cherished moments to remember how incredible they felt. After all, that’s what mindful travel is all about. As explained in Discover SilverSea, “the practice of mindfulness while traveling can help us feel more intensely immersed in the ephemeral. One of its essential elements is mindful meditation, the ancient Eastern tradition of sitting quietly while thoroughly and continually focusing on the moment for several minutes at a time. Mindful meditation during travel can help alleviate stress, and now doctors even prescribe it to patients suffering from chronic pain.”
Every year, we try to go to this beautiful place during summer. Whether the beautiful vast ocean view or the beautiful interaction with the locals and the food, I engulf every beautiful moment of my experience. It serve as a beautiful mental detox for me. Moreover, if you are a foodie, it will be sure to love to enjoy its connection to Chesapeake Bay, a waterway known for its blue crabs. Just head over to the Crab Bag. This quaint seafood restaurant serves the finest Eastern Shore-style seafood. The Crab Bag specializes in preparing and serving the best and largest Blue Crab. Just remember to pause for a minute or two before you begin eating to contemplate everything and everyone it took to bring the meal to your table. Silently express your gratitude for the opportunity to enjoy the delicious food and the companions you’re enjoying it with. Also be attentive to color, texture, aroma, and even the sounds different foods make as you eat them. As you chew your food, try identifying all the ingredients, especially seasonings.
I just love practicing mindful meditation on vacation by taking a few minutes out of my day to focus my attention on my breathing. The beautiful waves makes it equally easy to practice mindfulness. This helps clear any nagging thoughts or other clutter whirling within my mind, and I find that it especially help reduce negative thoughts. Taking a moment to breathe helps to dispel stress-inducing thoughts and is an easy way to improve your travel experience through meditation. I tend to focus my attention to the ocean so that I am entirely in the present moment.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to mygofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
