I am sooo happy to finally be in Mexico. I've been looking forward to this for so long and it's finally here! I decided to do a social media detox for the week I'm in Mexico. Maybe now that I've told all of you I REALLY won't break my pact. I think that it's the perfect opportunity to focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. I can't wait to tan, read, listen to music, play tennis, swim, eat lots and lots of fruits and veggies, and practice mindfulness. I brought along a little book that I bought before I left called Mindfulness On the Go by Jan Chozen Bays and it's AMAZING! I haven't gotten super far, but I already HIGHLY recommend. I read a book on mindfulness earlier this past semester and it was really amazing to see the world through a new lens. I feel like I spend a lot of my life thinking about the past and what I should've said or should've done or replaying moments in my mind, trapped in a spiral. On the other hand, I fantasize about the future. I don't think it's bad to have dreams about the future, but I also think it's extremely important to stay in the moment and live every moment to it's fullest. I know, I know, that's really cliche, but it's true. I already feel much more productive today, just by really experiencing everything. Next time you sit down for a meal, really experience the moment. Experience all of your sense: what do you feel, see, touch, smell? Trust me, it makes it feel like a whole new sensation. Rather then eating bite after bite, shoveling in your food, if you slow down and think about every bite, you enjoy it more; at least that's what I have felt. I'm really excited to get away from the stress of social media this week and focus on mindfulness and enjoying myself. While it sounds trivial, I have worries about things I post...will people like it? Will they think I'm weird for posting that? Or comparing myself to other girls. Why don't I have abs like that? I wish I was that tan...These thoughts take us into a detrimental spiral where we question everything. Practicing mindfulness, we can snap out of those spirals before they're out of control. I think it'll be so nice to unplug (except for my blog of course!) and relax this week.

Can't wait to share my outfits with you this week!
