SUN VALLEY, Idaho, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As families plan their ski vacations to ski resorts across the country, many wonder how they can make the most of their slope time and investment. Management consultant, nutrition counselor, and nonprofit manager turned skier Kathryn Kemp Guylay has a suggestion: turn your vacation into a wellness and success retreat.
"Whether Nordic or alpine, there is so much to be learned from spending time on the ski slopes," explains Kemp Guylay. "For example, every time you plant your pole, you can think to yourself: 'intention.' What are you striving for in 2016? How can you create intentions, or goals, that help you achieve your vision?"
Kemp Guylay developed her theories from dozens of interviews she conducted with Olympic level athletes who have mastered the sport physically and mentally. "We need to recognize that a significant amount of the success of these elite athletes has to do with their state of mind. Their techniques can be applied to the business world and other walks of life," Kemp Guylay says.
Her book, Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes (September 2015), hit #1 on Amazon as a paperback in the snow-skiing category in September; the Kindle/eBook edition was #1 in the same category in October and November. "People want to be healthy and feel energized," she adds, "and ski time is perfect for achieving both goals."
Ask Kemp Guylay:
- Why are mountains like an accelerated classroom?
- What are the six Mountain Mantras? How do they lead to success in life and wellness?
- How can people achieve success merely by changing how they perceive events?
