Bio-hack and self-care rituals from our friend @ksenyeah ! "Ever since I set my sights on visiting at least 100 countries over the course of my lifetime, the airport has become a second home. If you invite me to visit somewhere, you better mean it, because I’ll never say no to on opportunity to explore a new corner of the globe. Since New Years Day, I’ve soared through the friendly skies in 32 planes—that’s an average of one flight a week. These past few months alone, I’ve hiked the Grand Canyon, worked with leatherback sea turtles on an isolated island in Costa Rica, biked through the streets of Tel-Aviv, rode a snow mobile on an Icelandic glacier, and swam in the crystal clear waters hugging Sicily’s shores. And let me tell you: as someone who likes to explore new cities by walking 15 miles a day and eating her weight in local cuisine—desserts, dairy and carbs included—extensive travel, however gratifying and exciting, will take a serious toll on your body, especially if you don’t give it the love it needs. Between the wares of flying, the red-eyes, the sleepless nights, the food sicknesses and the countless activities driving your body to the brink of exhaustion, you have to find a set of reliable “bio-hacks” and self-care rituals to keep yourself going. That’s why I’m a sucker for the Lemon Ginger Cayenne Brew Dr. There’s no better way to detox and cleanse between my adventures than by drinking some good old Kombucha—the lemon and ginger hold potent healing and anti-oxidant properties to reset my system, while the cayenne spice gives me the little boost of energy I need to conquer whatever time zone I may be jet lagged in."
