Living in Chamonix, France inspired me to embrace the novelty of immersing myself in a new local scene. I soaked in the local food (so much cheese!), language, yoga classes, coffee shops and people, all of it expanding my experience of what's available in life. Research shows the importance of stepping out of our comfort zones, whether in our exercise routines, diet, mindset, learning, to build new neural pathways and bio-mechanical connections, as well as creating way more fun in our lives! In my excitement to share this message, I recorded this video in the middle of downtown Chamonix with some wind blowing down from the mountains that are all around. Please excuse the few moments of windy sound quality and enjoy a little taste of French mountain life!
