how i learned to let go and live better

From the age of 26, I lived my dream as a gypsy globetrotter, designing the coolest boutique hotels, partying with rock stars, and drinking a lot of cocktails. As you can imagine, the 24/7/365 nature of being a hotelier in pursuit of this sort of hipster happiness took a toll after a while. As I entered my 30s, I started seeking out a more transformative kind of travel, from an onsen “hot springs” tour in Japan to a glamping retreat in Indonesia. These trips inspired new concepts for my company, Joie de Vivre Hospitality, such as the Japanese communal baths near one of our San Francisco hotels and a boutique campground on California’s coastal Highway 1. But I was still in “pursuit” mode. Instead of pursuing drinks at a chic bar, I…

sedona, two ways

This desert town may be small—just over 10,000 residents—but Sedona is home to a varied band of yogis and healers, as well as hikers and bikers who view the surrounding 1.8 million acres of spectacular natural land as one big, wild playground. Cool yet temperate temperatures and fewer visitors this time of year mean you’ll have miles of the breathtaking sandstone landscape mostly to yourself, and low-season prices make it almost inexcusable not to bliss out at one of the area’s many spas. “This is a place where you can feel your spirit expand, and you are free to talk about it without worrying about sounding like a weirdo!” —Michele Mattix, Airbnb superhost abnb.com/sedonameditation abnb.com/michelescondo TO RELAX Chill out with balancing yoga sessions and holistic spa treatments. Sedona is often called a cathedral without walls—some…

where locals go to refuel

Breakfast The town’s yogis, including Heather Shereé Titus, co-creator of the Sedona Yoga Festival, often stop by Local Juicery post-class for cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and açai bowls. (localjuicery.com) Lunch Many of the ingredients at vegan-friendly ChocolaTree Organic Eatery come from the backyard garden, where you should snag a table. Christina Wooten, a Sedona medium, says the people-watching here is as big a draw as the sweet potato enchilada. (chocolatree.com) Dinner Craving meat? You can’t beat the steaks, grilled on an Argentinian parrilla, at upscale Latin American spot Mariposa. “The terrace, with its panoramic views, is the best place to catch the sunset,” says Rich Donnelly, who owns a second home in Sedona. (mariposasedona.com)…

the sanest stay-healthy travel advice

YOUR BODY AT 30, 000 FEET There are legit reasons why you feel out of sorts during a flight. Your head throbs. The air up there is decidedly drier and contains less oxygen than the air on land, which can leave you dehydrated and headachy, says Christopher Sanford, M.D., a professor of family medicine at the University of Washington. Your skin is dry. Our skin is used to a humidity level of at least 30 percent, says New York City dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, but in planes it’s usually less than 20 percent. In the window seat? You’ll be exposed to increased ultraviolet radiation and oxidative stress. “Wear SPF and double up on antioxidants, like a free-radical-neutralizing serum and green tea.” Your feet are swollen. Being confined to seat 23A for hours at a time…

santa teresa’s rx for living

It’s a long and bumpy road to the idyllic village of Santa Teresa, but perhaps a rough ride is a small price to pay for the revitalizing retreat that lies on Costa Rica’s rugged Pacific Coast. Here on the Nicoya Peninsula, wellness roots run deep—it is, after all, one of the world’s five original Blue Zone areas. In these exceptional geographic spots (the other four being Ikaria, Greece; Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; and Loma Linda, California), people live longer than anywhere else on earth. “Nicoyans have arguably the lowest rate of middle-age mortality in the world,” says Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest. “It’s due to a cluster of behaviors, and it’s mostly environmental—it’s because they live in…
