The minute you step off the plane in Hawaii, your heart rate slows, breathing deepens and stress instantly melts. Being in Hawaii makes you feel not just physically better, but spiritually and emotionally as well. Should we credit tropical breezes, warm sand and the soothing sound of waves? Maybe all of these, but it’s also the local culture that exudes a serene sense of soulful living. So why not cultivate a kamaʻāina (Hawaiian for “child of the land”) state of mind wherever you are? Aloha shirt is optional.
