It is hard to think about Mexico without affiliating the air you breathe and the land you walk on with the effervescent feel of magic. For Sheriden Chanel, writer and managing editor of xoNecole.com, Mexico is now home because of that feeling.
Last year led her to finding love which in turn led to frequent visits to the country. Something else that unearthed during her escapes was the importance of cultivating inner peace and prioritizing self care.
Sheriden quickly realized that living in Atlanta didn’t align with the life she saw for herself. On her 30th birthday, she would shed the toxicity of years of burnout experienced in her old life to become renewed.
Though she resides in Mexico City, Sheriden has immersed herself in the richness of culture, history and tradition of Mexico through visits to Puerto Vallarta, Oaxaca, Mineral del Chico, Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende.
The deep reds, mustard yellows, salmon and earth tones that paint the places lining the cobblestone streets of the pueblo mágico of San Miguel de Allende are reminders that you are passing through a place that embraces the grounded nature of simplicity.
Past meets present in a delicate balance that makes it no wonder the town of 174,615 people beckons travelers and expats both far and near to bask in its beauty, indulge in wellness, and leave relaxed and restored.
