As the founder and CEO of mindbodygreen married to my fellow co-founder and chief brand officer, Colleen, we have to travel quite a bit for work. Travel almost destroyed my health 10 years ago but it also was the inspiration behind mindbodygreen and our mission to make wellness accessible—especially for serious travelers like us! (More on that here!)
So what does travel look like for us in 2018? We are on the road almost every other week and try to bring our 1-year-old daughter Ellie with us as much as we can. Ellie was on 22 flights in her first year on this planet and has only had one meltdown on a flight! (This was when we were on the tarmac for two hours so she was just expressing the frustration all the other passengers had. I wished I could scream, too!)
Traveling with our infant daughter can be complicated and difficult, especially when we are trying to maintain our wellness routines as a family, however, we've found that certain things work really well no matter what obstacles travel throws our way.
