Get Creative: 5 ways to engage the right side of your brain

The right side of your brain is responsible for art and music awareness, creativity, intuition, imagination and more. It's the side of us that delights in expressiveness. How do you express yourself and engage your creative side? We have some ideas to get you going. Write a children's book Have you ever considered writing a book? What's more right-brained than getting creative with words? Tap into your childlike wonder and creativity, too, by trying to write a children's book! Start small. A children's book can be as short as a few pages. Start with an important lesson you think kids should learn. Next, think of a fun way to tell a story that teaches that lesson. The best part about writing for kids is that there are fewer rules. Dogs can talk, horses can fly and the worlds are endless! Don't get hung up on making it perfect, just get words on paper. You'll be surprised by how quickly the right side of your brain can get in the flow. Book a recording session with a pro Whether you can belt it out with the best of them or you just like the way you feel when you sing, scheduling time to record your musical chops [...]

5 U.S. destinations you can learn something from

The U.S. is packed with adventures that will broaden your horizons, lift your spirits and teach you invaluable lessons. From the West Coast to the East we've got you covered. Northeast: The Hudson River Valley, New YorkWhen you think of New York, bright lights and the big city might flash before your eyes but there's a lot more to New York state than a bustling city. Think mountains, orchards, and the mighty Hudson River. New York is riddled with history. In fact, it's the state to head to, to learn about the vast network that made up the Underground Railroad. From the city to the farm, there are dozens of secret stops from churches to shops to homes. Stop in Peru, New York for a look at one of those stops on the Underground Railroad. Plus, while you're there you can walk through the museum to learn a thing or two. While you're in the area, just outside the Adirondack Mountains, be sure to see Ausable Chasm, known as the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks, for hiking, floating, and rock climbing. Looking to really take a bite? The Hudson River Valley is rich in agricultural history, which means produce bursting in flavor. If you want apples with [...]

HappinessYou're here at My World Registry, so you already know that there's something special about doing things rather than having things. There's even scientific proof to back you up.

What’s your dream travel experience? Maybe it’s a yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico, or a Cycle and Wine adventure in Tuscany, or a honeymoon in Patagonia? For a moment, take a deep, breath and let yourself believe you’re headed there.
