Welcome to our 19. Day of the Natural Highs Academy!



YOUR TREASURE MAP TO WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS


Hope you found some inspiration to experiment with movement in new ways.

Would so love to hear what you are discovering!

The adventure is really happening when we step outside our habits and try something new. Then our brain goes beyond the familiar and actually is more awake and pays more attention. So many treasures are waiting for us outside our comfort zone: We don't just find new experiences but we also can experience ourselves in a new way.

I so hope that you had those moments during this Covid time already: experiencing something in new ways, seeing something with new eyes, appreciating something in new ways.

Who knows how long we will have this opportunity so let's use it fully!

Today, you have a chance to draw your own TREASURE MAP.

Letting yourself get out of your comfort zone and find MAGIC.

Attached you find a draft of a TREASURE MAP that you can personalize.

You can add all the different areas of your life and where you could challenge yourself to add new adventures outside of your comfort zone. You probably had challenges in certain areas of your life during this time, stretched yourself and found some rewards. And maybe not in other areas. Today I invite you to look through the different areas of your life and see where you could take yourself out of your comfort zone into the space of adventure where the magic happens.

Feel free to add any of the different areas of your life to your TREASURE MAP:

- emotional

- physical

- social

- school/work

- creative

- nature

- spiritual

Feel free to write or draw anything into your Treasure Map in how you would like to take yourself out of your Comfort Zone and challenge yourself and expand in the different areas of your life this week.

As an inspiration you see the beautiful art by Marie Angelique Hicks who created the piece above during this Covid time.


Please set your creativity FREE!

Very, very soon we will host a virtual Natural Highs Open Mic & Creative Gathering where everyone, teens and people all ages will have a chance to share their art, poetry, music, songs, performance, etc. - we will keep you posted.

TODAY's ACTIVITIES: - Check out the attached Worksheet and let yourself be inspired to make your own TREASURE MAP in how you want to take yourself out of your Comfort Zone in the different areas of your life and challenge yourself this week. You can either print out the attached worksheet or make your own.

- Let yourself be inspired by Marie's art, make your own piece of art and send it to avani@naropa.edu so that we can send it out to inspire others. There will probably be a new art genre called "Covid Art" and you can be part of it!

- There is also another beautiful Habit Tracker Worksheet where you can track new habits that you want to remind yourself of on a daily basis
