Lessons from the jungle
If you’ve been following along my social media the last couple weeks, you were probably thinking what tf is she doing? Why is she always sweating? Where does Dallas have that many trees? Did something just shriek in the background?
I spent the last two weeks in Costa Rica, immersed in a functional medicine, strength and conditioning retreat. It was one of those experiences that yield so many lessons and gifts, that you find it hard to describe…but I want to at least share some takeaways that I hope to never forget.
Sit every day. Sitting won’t quiet the thoughts or eliminate them – it will simply allow them to show up and then leave without as much attachment.
I am deeply grateful to the incredible humans who gave so much of themselves to this experience. Ben and Steph House for making this amazing experience a reality from dream to inception. Dr. Bryan Walsh, Dr. Mike T Nelson, Dr. Pat Davidson, Dr. Seth Oberst, Dr. Zac Cupples, Lucy Hendricks and Ryan L’Ecuyer for smashing the standard of sharing knowledge. And to the brilliant, hilarious and precious humans I had the honor to share space with for way too long – all of you guys are nuts, and I freakin’ love you.
Until next year #PuraVida
