Staying inside your comfort zone is easy. Safe. Comfortable. And that's a lovely thing. But if you do it too much, it can make life feel stagnant, monotonous and unexciting. The longer you stay there, the smaller it gets. The more uncomfortable things feel. Stay there too long, and you lose your ability to deal with challenges, to cope when life hits you with things that hurt. You lose your resilience, your ability to bounce back.
This week, we're going to teach you how to build your resilience so you can feel strong, confident and joyful. Let's do this!
Step, breathe, step, breathe, step, breathe… This is the meditation mantra of our Wild Women team of Himalayan hikers, who recently trekked from Jomsom, the gateway to the hidden Kingdom Of Mustang, to Lo Mantang, near the Tibetan border, in search of adventure, tranquillity and the ancient Tiji Festival. After 12 days of thin air, heat, dust and heavenly views, our tent-based hikers compiled this list of tips, to help both newbies and seasoned hikers fine tune their packing and performance for a more fun and fabulous Himalayan adventure.
This unique adventure will see you trek through the Turkestan Range to the heart of the Pamir-Alay mountain system and the foot of the towering Ak-Suu peak. Marvel at crystal clear, glacier fed streams and lakes, lush fir tree forests and alpine meadows with herds of grazing yaks and no civilization in sight.
