My favorite kinds of beautiful are all below the surface.💙 this is the largest pod I’ve ever had the privilege of swimming with (they’re even behind us out of frame of the video) and I swear there are times when I forget I’m not breathing, forget everything that exists besides being a slowly beating heart in this magnificent infinite blue. - Video by @cobiandewey. I met Cobian a year or two ago when he was just getting more into shooting and slacklining - now it absolutely kills it at both. So stoked to get in the water with you again! What a day. #hawaii
Life tip Tuesday: We are, by nature, attracted to vibrant colors. If you want to spend less time on your phone try switching it to grayscale! In IOS it’s easy and if you click the “home” button three times it will switch back and forth easily. Accessibility -> Accessibility shortcut -> Color filters I’ll link how to do it in my stories :) • I also put all my social media apps in a folder inside a folder on my third page so it’s not the first thing I see. Instead I put my “happiness” apps like meditation or reading first. • Thank you @alannapotter for showing me this the other day! If you guys have any other ones I’d love to hear them. • Photo by @michaelmatti from arguably the shortest and most stunning sunrise I’ve ever seen (literally only looked like this for less than one minute!) #maui #lifehacks
All my life here and I’m still in love. - #HappyFathersDay to the awesome dads out there. Mine is 5’1” and more than half a foot shorter than my mom (cutest couple ever) but, like this island, has a presence enough to fill my whole world many times over. Love you papa, I know you probably won’t see this (doesn’t even have texting on his phone😂) and don’t really understand my job, but you understand me and you always have💙 Thank you for giving me my love and respect for the sea, for always treating me as completely capable even when I was a small spindly thing wanting to dirt bike with the boys and learn to weld. You raised me for a life without limits and I can only hope to make you and mom proud, encourage others even a fraction of how much you’ve encouraged me.
Blessings on blessings. - Morning swims in front of our room at the @stregiskauai for our girls staycation. In all my years I’ve never seen this place so clear and glassy!☀️ Happy birthday Alanna bear, if we are all a combination of the company we keep I can only hope I’ve soaked up some of your thoughtfulness and goodness. You life a life defined by love and I’m so dang lucky for our years of friendship!!! @alannapotter 🍊🥖🥑🧘🏼♂️🌊🏝 #kauai #princeville
Healthier body, happier mind :) Anybody want to work out with me? 💛✨ I’m committing to moving my body every day as part of @barre3’s Summer of Strong and I’d love to invite anyone who is interested to do it along with me! 28 days of free #barre3anywhere workouts (get access via the swipe up link in my story) starts on June 18, no props needed and it will include things like healthy recipes,10 min. daily work outs, weekly social giveaways.🤗 I’ve been streaming other videos from their library (usually a mix of the core/lower body blasts and stretching ones) for the last three weeks and it’s been so so good for me to have something that supports functional movement and that I can do/take with me anywhere. - I know life can be crazy - as I write this I’ve been sitting at my computer for 11 hours - but 10 min a day I think we all have time for that yes?! (And a book or two :P) I’ll be doing these workouts wherever I am in the world - would love for you to join and we can encourage/keep each other accountable! Here’s to beautiful brains and strong bodies! #sponsored #sleepinggiant #LIGHTRAYS
@bejamin and I getting barreled in Alaska last summer. I still can’t believe we found this place. We were driving down a random dirt road and I happened to mention - hey I would really love to see an ice cave. We spotted this one way off in the distance not 20 minutes later and decided to hike to it. A castle of blue ice arched above our heads as we stood on an island of crumbling black sand. Tiny drips from the ceiling corresponded to smooth pools in the ice down below. From somewhere in the darkness, a river rushed out of the cave in a cacophony of ice chunks and mud. As with nearly everything I saw in Alaska, it had this slightly sketchy, elemental beauty - equal parts alluring and dangerous. We looked around for a minute or two before retreating back to the safety of open skies and sunshine. - 📷 Photo by @bejamin
#ad This is my joy. Iʼm excited to collaborate with @citibank on a project to encourage everyone to spend more time living in the present moment, something Iʼve been working to more fully embody in my own life. For me, itʼs these fleeting moments of pure joy found in challenging my body, in connecting with people or places I love, and in the details of nature that constantly make me stop in my tracks. My happiest moments are often not caught on camera and theyʼre usually not found by looking at my phone :) - The Citi Mobile App allows me to spend less time managing my banking and more time doing what I love. This life is meant to be big and beautiful and so precious, I hope this upcoming series of videos and photos will honor that idea, make you smile half as much as it made me 💛 - Thank you to my favorite creative soul @sam_kolder for making this with me and being a big part of all these adventures around the world and back. To @shalloumusic for their song “Sigh”.
I’ve visited so many countries across our beautiful globe and somehow the one I fell hardest for is literally on the other side of the Earth :) After two trips to South Africa (about a month this year), I’m still constantly surprised by the diversity of landscapes, how relatively unknown it all is, and mostly by how much it feels like home. - I’m delighted to be taking over the stories on @visitsouthafrica to give some tips on #WaterwiseTourism and share some of my favorite scenic spots! I know a lot of you have messaged me about Cape Town in particular so if you have questions please feel free to ask :) - This shot is from #Drakensberg, a World Heritage Site, on the border of Lesotho and South Africa. More importantly, there were LIGHT RAYS here every evening, our tents behind me, a river down the way and the kind of quiet that only comes from being miles and mountains away from the nearest people. Besides being frozen at night this was very close to Chelsea heaven. #MeetSouthAfrica
Wake up and give someone a compliment, write down three things that you’re grateful for. Chew more slowly. Say please and thank you, even with people you see everyday. Always strive to be the best in the world at the thing you are most passionate about. Above all, our time here is short and never certain - be original, be appreciative, never stop learning, never stop growing. Just a few of the lessons I’ve learned from this amazing human next to me @sam_kolder I’ve seen how you can take any situation, even sorrow, and turn it into fuel to make something beautiful. Congratulations on your launch with @mvmt, in awe of you every day but especially today!✨#Namibia
