6 Tips for healthy travel for each Human Design Type
There are five Human Design Types and each Type uses their energy differently in their daily lives and when they travel. When you travel as a family, each family member may have different needs and if it sometimes is a struggle, these tips can help you travel in a healthier way that is correct for you and your family.
Within Human Design, there are Generators, Manifesting Generators, Projectors, Manifestors and Reflectors. Each type may be motivated by different actions, i.e. a Generator may see a literal sign for gelato in Italy and decide instantly “Yes! I want some gelato!”. To find out your Human Design Type and learn more about it, go to humandesignpdx.com. Once you know your type you can read below and see if one of the travel styles seems like you.
Essential oils can be a great travel tool for well-being support or for an “in the moment” shift of mood for every Human Design Type. We’ve included which oils work best for each design during travel.
Top 6 travel tips for a Generator:
How to decide where you go: Generators need to see a sign or respond to something and then say “heck yes” (or “no way!) to it. It could be as simple as having someone ask, “Do you want to go to Hawaii?”
How many things to plan: Plan 1-3 things a day and see what you feel like for the rest of the day. If you are travelling with a Manifesting Generator, they may want to happily do more things than you in a day – just pick and choose what you want to join (if you do things you don’t want to do, you will get frustrated).
How to eat: Eat what you desire. Ask yourself “Do I want to go here?” for each restaurant choice and “Do I want to eat this?” for each food choice and you will feel nourished…if you listen to your body.
Rest/Move: You need to physically move to sleep well. If you are on a tropical relaxation vacation, you may want to take strolls in the morning or evening or go out for a swim. If you are on adventure vacation or without a car in a city, you may indirectly get enough physical activity.
Be aware of: You may get frustrated when travelling. Try to just breathe and let it go. You don’t want to show up at your destination all cranky from being frustrated on your journey.
Top 3 essential oils for a Generator to pack:
- Peppermint to dissolve frustration in the moment or dissolve the head tension from all the built-up frustration. 😊
- Wild Orange to boost your energy and mood so you can do all the fun things you have planned (or are responding to)!
- On Guard for immunity support and protection – put this on leading up to your trip and throughout your travels.
Top 6 travel tips for a Manifesting Generator:
How to decide where you go: Manifesting Generators need to see a sign or respond to something and then say “heck yes” to it. It could be as simple as having someone as you, “Do you want to go to Thailand?”. A Manifesting Generator should also inform people that may be impacted by their trip.
How many things to plan: Explore and plan away! You can do many things as part of your unique gift as a Manifesting Generator. Keep in mind that you are designed to try things on and you may not know if you like them until after you try them. Don’t worry if some of your plans are a bust – remember that the experience of trying something new is the adventure. You may go to many places on one trip or in one day.
Special Note: If you are travelling with people who are not Manifesting Generators, they may not be able to keep up with you and may need to opt out of a few of your activities.
How to eat: Eat what you desire. Ask yourself “Do I want to go here?” for each restaurant choice and “Do I want to eat this?” for each food choice and you will feel nourished…if you listen to your body. Your thoughts will affect how you digest your food, attach positive thoughts no matter what you are eating.
Rest/Move: You need to physically move to sleep well. If you are on a tropical relaxation vacation, you may want to go for a bike ride, beach strolls or ocean swim to get some of the wiggles out. As a Manifesting Generator, you may opt for adventure travel to combine your activity with exploring.
Be aware of: You may get impatient (frustrated & angry) when travelling. Try to just breathe and let it go. Remember, not everyone can do things as quickly as you – including the airport staff. To avoid arriving at your destination cranky and frustrated, learn to be aware that these emotions are not meant to be kept, rather felt and then let go.
