My wanderlust is so strong that it manifests as a physical ache (like someone with their hand pushing on my back) and itchy feet. But as much as I love traveling, it brings with it significant anxiety.
Do whatever you have to do to find that inner peace, and keep doing it. Sometimes you might find that the best kinds of peace-meditations don't happen while sitting on the floor cross-legged.
If we are focused on which filter makes a photo look best instead of seeing the world in real time, we are missing the point of what it is to experience and appreciate. We must remember that the future isn't a destination we are trying to get to, but a direction we are traveling with each step.

I finally love my alone time, in fact I cherish it and I need it. I also meditate! Imagine that. Everyone can benefit from alone time and here are some reasons why.
We need to shift our thinking about well-being from a static "thing" to a set of skills that can be learned and cultivated over time -- a notion supported by a growing body of scientific evidence I've outlined as an author of this year's World Happiness Report.
