“Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” -Paul Theroux
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Featuring a comfortable new design, the Muse-S multi-sensory band lulls you using neurofeedback and customized guided meditations.
Whether traveling for work or fun, the factors involved—the hassles, the time zone changes, the disrupted sleep—can throw our overall wellness out of whack. Aimed at grounding the body, centering and calming a busy mind and encouraging you to feel present, mediation can help get things back in balance; while you’re not supposed to fall asleep during a meditation session, it can also help promote a more restful or deeper snooze come bedtime. Launched in January, the Muse S device aims to make meditating and sleeping while traveling easy by featuring a more comfortable design (so you can use it while lying down), award-winning neurofeedback tech, and new Go-to-Sleep programs that react to your body and mind—all of which came in handy on my recent 20-hour journey to Asia.

Victoria Cruise Lines says it has cancelled six cruises on China’s Yangtze River due to concerns about the coronavirus.
“While operations have not been directly impacted by the situation in Wuhan — more than 500 miles away from the American-managed company’s Chongqing office — many passengers travel through transportation hubs which have been affected by proactive measures taken by the Chinese government, creating logistical difficulties,” the company said in a statement.
Additionally, the company said China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has asked the tour sector to temporarily suspend operations. In response, Victoria said, it has cancelled all sailings through Feb. 16, six offseason winter departures.
“Victoria Cruise Lines will monitor the situation in the interim and continue to prioritize the safety and enjoyment of its valued guests,” the company said.
