About to go sit on a cliff over the ocean with my friends and set my intentions for the week. I’m pretty new to all this meditating and self-improvement stuff, but in a busy world I’ve found it helps me so much to filter out the distractions and feel more successful. (I’m reading a book called Essentialism: the disciplined pursuit of less, highly recommend it)

Basically I’ve learned it’s hard to be productive if you don’t know what your priorities are️ I’ve been setting just three for each day and it’s really helped me focus so I thought I would share. Happy Sunday everyone, hope your week gets off to an awesome start! Photo by my soul brother @noel.alva miss you! #hawaii #essentialism

@earthyandy Ah man I love this!

$50,000 GRANT - Hello ocean lovers and humans doing good all over the planet! I wanted to take a moment to highlight and appreciate a program my amazing shoe sponsor @KEEN has going. They’re giving $50,000 to five organizations around the world working to improve the resiliency of coastal communities and ecosystems.

keenfootwear.com/grants!! It’s open around the world and the deadline to apply is Sept 30.

Being a values led company is one of the main reasons I’ve been so proud to be working with Keen the last three years and over and over I see them continue to dedicate so much of their energy and income to taking action in the places we play. Anyway I could talk about them a lot because I think they’re rad and always making me strive to do better️ Sending love to my @keen fam especially the #KEENeffect team #bettertakesaction #criticalcoastlines

#sponsored by @canonusa//Diving up. We woke up this morning to the calmest ocean I’ve ever seen in my life, like a surreal mirror into the horizon. Since this month’s #ShootforGreatness creative challenge with @canonusa revolved around weightlessness I knew it was the perfect time to try something with such unique conditions! I’ve always loved doing these jumping photos and wanted this one to reflect the almost disorienting sense of minimalism and floating on the sky that I felt that morning. If you want to try your own shot like this you can use any shallow glassy surface like a puddle and shoot from a low angle :) -

When I think about travel, art, and the outdoors the thing that they all have in common for me is how daunting they seemed at first. I think the most common question I get about everything I do is - but how did you start?.. And as a woman in many male dominated arenas I definitely feel an affinity for anyone a little shy to get into something new.

My @DJIGlobal #MavicAir (named Hopper) and I have spent the last 8 months traveling across oceans and up mountains. What I appreciate most about it though is how its size and features have made me feel empowered to create and capture more of my own vision.

I’m learning the secret is there is no secret. Start somewhere, practice courage, and be kind to yourself along the way. Whether it’s backpacking for the first time, freediving, or learning to fly drones if it’s something you’re really interested in, consider this an invitation. I promise the hardest part is just starting and the satisfaction of being self-sufficient is so worth it.️ #NowitsEpic #sponsored by @DJIglobal

Summertime in the backcountry We went on a really cool (slightly Type II fun) backpacking trip earlier this week. I wonder sometimes what I’ll think looking back on all these photos 20, 30 years from now. This one, I think, will still feel very real to me. Mid morning after a peanut butter breakfast, hiding from the bugs, indulging in some quality conversation.

@thechrishau Vance creek? :)

A little bit of how I feel right now. Gracefully drowning in my own creative process and slowly seeing the light It’s been a week of 12 hour computer days where I remind myself I’m trying to be better at things, faster, more efficient but it is a PROCESS. 
I hope you remember that inspiration is inconvenient at times. That every person growing or creating something in the world seems to share this struggle regardless of how successful they are. That it always seems less messy from the outside.

My life right now is an infinite series of trying, failing, learning, asking for help, and ultimately a lot of unglamorous sitting down and doing what is hard - just giving something my undivided concentration until it is done! Happy weekend my humans, hope you’re finding what fuels you #Hawaii #notestoselfseries

Growing up I loved hearing stories of Hawaiian mythology. In the versions I heard Maui was a demigod who, in addition to fishing the islands out of the sea, also captured the sun, La, forcing him to move more slowly across the sky. True to form, on our first evening @fsmaui we witnessed this fiery sunset that seemed to never end

Maui was the last stop on our 8 days spent with @fourseasons. Even as someone born and raised in Hawaii this trip was filled with so much wonder and surprises!! On my favorite day we got to take a helicopter to Hana, swim in waterfalls, and visit @onoorganicfarms with the chef from Four Seasons to do a fruit tasting and pick ingredients for our dinner️ Incredibly grateful to experience their new #HawaiibyFS package which combines the most memorable food and outdoor experiences into one personalized 10-14 day itinerary. Video coming soon :)

Always learning I’ve been dabbling in acro yoga this past week and it’s so addicting! I love that it asks not only for personal strength, but also immense amounts of trust and communication. Second video shows how we got into this posture -
I’m wearing two pieces from @athleta’s new summer collection which is designed to travel well with wrinkle-free, UV protecting materials. About half the collection is also made from recycled materials! :) I’ve been lucky to work with Athleta a few times over the years and I’m a really big fan of their #PowerofShe mission to empower women to realize their limitless potential. Linking more in my story! #sponsored

@earthyandy Ah beautiful!!!!

Above water my day is filled with things. Everything feels so.. urgent. It’s about productivity, connectivity, everything so beautifully loudly asking for attention.
Underwater is quiet time. It’s a game counted in heartbeats. How mindfully can I move, how deeply can I breath, how gracefully can I simultaneously be living and dying, loving and letting go Trying to bring this mindset to the surface with me more often.

I had a crazy travel day getting here to Denver and this is where I go in my head when I need a little more grace and gratitude.

@earthyandy Amazing! And so true! Whenever I’m overwhelmed I swim out as far as I can and swim as deep as a can..: something about the solitude makes everything clear again!
