Adjusting to life in Nicaragua

 Join Dr. Stillman for Q&A on Substack

Exploring Active Living

In the absence of a traditional gym setup, I've had to get resourceful. From beachside yoga to using tree branches for pull-ups, my workout routine has become an exploration of creativity and adaptability. Each session is a reminder that staying active is not just about the tools but the mindset.

The Mind-Body Connection

Embarking on a lesson about mind-body medicine with Dr. Stillman has been eye-opening. We delved into the impact of past trauma on one's overall health. It's a powerful reminder that wellness is a holistic journey, not just a physical one. This has reshaped my approach to health and wellbeing.

Embracing Change and Growth

From managing emails to enrolling in a wellness coaching course, I'm navigating the transition with positivity. The challenges of adapting are met with excitement for the new opportunities. The journey of growth and personal development has been both exhilarating and fulfilling.

Adapting to Climate Shifts

The warmth of Nicaragua is a far cry from the chill of Northern Canada. Embracing the higher UV levels and warmer temperatures has been an adjustment like no other. The body's gradual acclimatization has been a testament to resilience, and every day offers new revelations.

Community and Resilience

Navigating the arrival of essentials from the U.S. and finding specific items in Nicaragua has been a test of patience. Yet, the strong sense of community and the promise of upcoming projects are beacons of hope. It's a reminder that with resilience and optimism, any challenge can be conquered.


The journey of adjusting to life in Nicaragua has been a tapestry of challenges and triumphs, from unconventional workouts to acclimating to a warmer climate. Through it all, the spirit of adaptability and resilience has shone through, making each day a new chapter in this exhilarating journey.
