As a psychologist, I am not only passionate about going out on excursions but also about self-help in general and the personal growth opportunities that travel and excursions provide. Here you will find links to some of my favorite self-help resources (including my own YouTube channel where I offer some FREE meditations and yoga videos!).

For more specific posts related to well-being and quality of life, refer to the Inspiration category of my blog. Or if you cherish quotes as much as I do, look up Excursionologist on Pinterest!

Mindfulness and Meditation:

UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research center offers free guided meditations in both English and Spanish.

Self compassion:

Check out Kristen Neff’s work

There are also several university webpages that offer great information and exercises you can try:

If you are just looking for some humor, inspiration, and tbh some art, I highly suggest you check out Soul Pancake (created by Dwight from Office if that means anything to you):

And not trying to toot my own horn here, but as a psychologist I frequently refer people to resources that could be of use to them, so let me know if there is something you are looking for that is not listed here and I would love to help point you in the right direction!!

Carry on Excursionistas! You can DO this!
