Ultimate Guide to Wanderlust Festivals from a Pro

It's crazy how much Wanderlust Festivals have grown! They're no longer a summer thing, but rather an open-ended opportunity to travel to some of the most amazing destinations in the world year-round while immersing yourself in good vibes and wellness. If you're reading this it's because you're a professional Wanderluster (like me) or about to become one and you're looking for more information. Well, you've come to the right place because I'm going to attempt to share the most info I can about the 3 festivals I've attended, which were all very different. I never thought I'd get so hooked on a yoga lifestyle festival (even though I'm a yogi) but the minute I experienced the nature, music, holistic, artistic and social sides of Wanderlust I couldn't help but go back. The first festival I went to was at Copper Mountain, the next was in the North Shore of O'ahu and the most recent was a lot closer to home in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. I'm going to tell you about each of these...

Make Major Moves In 2014 With Theme Songs

Did you make some New Year's resolutions but are finding yourself already flaking on them a few weeks into 2014? I have a NEW approach for you: Use MUSIC to make sure you hit all your 2014 goals. Create theme songs (on your iPhone/mp3 player) that will keep your goals “singing” in your ears so that you’ll be reminded and revved up for all the great changes you’re ready to make. 

Maybe some of you are old enough to remember the "dancing baby" episode from the hit tv show Ally McBeal? Because that's basically what I'm talking about!

As both the music fitness editor of and New York City high school teacher, I constantly have to motivate my readers (you guys!) and my students. I like to go all out (as you can see below).

Music can help you realize your dreams and goals. All you have to do is find your theme song, turn it up and then turn on new set of opportunities.

It’s important for you to have a theme song for all the goal-oriented...

Holiday Songs You Can TOTALLY Work Out To!

'Tis the season for late night holiday party cocktails and groggy early morning workouts. It's a seasonal rite of passage for the fitness lover who also can't say no to a fun Christmas party, right?

For those of you who are trying to merge the holiday spirit into your workout, I put together a playlist of holiday songs that you can ACTUALLY sweat to at the gym. 

I know what you are thinking: most holiday songs are great for listening to in the background at a store or cozy restaurant but not really for attacking the treadmill. I felt the same way until I perused my music collection and realized that you can actually work out to Christmas songs. 

Not convinced? Press play and good workout tidings you'll bring. Let me know if I'm missing any holiday classics that are also workout-friendly! Just add them to the comments section below! Here's that playlist again...Holiday Music You Can Actually Sweat To!
