Hello and welcome to the Wellness page on Natalie the Explorer blog!
Wellness Weekend 2020 is a wellness blog link-up series with a monthly theme. On the 3rd Sunday of every month in 2020, I write a post with images to share a wellness-related story or experience.

My current wellness routine includes:
- Greet every new day with a smile.
- Meditate 15 minutes daily.
- Walk outdoors 6x per week, one hour each time.
- Do strength workouts 3x per week, one hour each time.
- Practice yoga 2x per week, one hour each time.
- Swim 1x per week, one hour.
I’ve been living a car-free lifestyle for many years. I enjoy walking and use public transit when needed. During the fair weather months, I try to make time for seasonal activities such as cycling.
I started learning and practicing Ashtanga yoga in the mid-1990’s for close to ten years. I switched to Hatha yoga and have been enjoying it since.
I keep track of my wellness activities on a simple sheet. I’m committed to stay fit and try to be consistent with my wellness routine even when I travel.
Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to meeting you at the blog link-up.
