Let’s face it. Our carefully planned fun-filled Bali holiday can sometimes get out of hand. Especially if you’re travelling with a group of friends or family. Picture this; there’s a new place to visit, but your partner’s must-visit place is on the other side of the island. It is a new restaurant you want to try, but one of you has dietary needs not catered for. Or you need to travel a much further distance than expected. Expect constantly changing plans due to a lack of time, changeable weather, or just too many good options to choose from.
With the constant rush during group get-togethers, traveling, and trying to please everyone (including the children) can easily become overwhelming for you and your loved ones. The result is a lot of post-holiday stress once you’re back home, instead of fond memories and souvenirs.
More often than not, we forget our health and fitness regime. We eat what our kids eat, we sleep longer because those nights at the bar were three cocktails too long, and even though we brought along our running shoes, we cannot seem to find a good place to use them.
This week is all about that. How to slow down and appreciate you are in Bali with your family, and that it is okay not to do everything you planned to do.
It is really about enjoying the holiday without compromising our inner-peace and health. And maybe go on adventures that make us forget about posting Instagram stories every five minutes. Live and enjoy the moment personally, rather than trying to always document and post it for validation from those not there with you!
For those traveling to the island with toddlers, check our pick of kids friendly restaurants for some delicious options. While herbivores can stay with their mindful diet using this.
Keep those legs moving by exploring Bali’s great waterfalls, or maybe learn to surf?
Or simply make use of those sports shoes you packed, and visit one of these gyms before you return home, or try these running tracks.
Have a great week ahead everyone, and enjoy Bali as you continue to follow us for news and exciting happenings around the island, don’t forget to check our What’s New Indonesia for Jakarta, Bali, and Bandung happenings.
Be mindful. And stay fit. It’s the best way to enjoy your holiday
Enjoy your visit!
