10 Las Vegas Hotels for People who Love Travel

Las Vegas – the world’s capital of fun – is undoubtedly a must-visit destination for all travelers. Here you won’t only get a chance to party all night long, play games in hundreds of casinos and have fun in many amazing shows, but also explore the surrounding areas as well. In fact, there are some pretty cool things you can do around, which don’t necessarily include gambling.

However, if you really want to get everything possible from your visit to Vegas, you need to spend a few days there. And this won’t happen if you don’t book hotels! Therefore, bellow we share a list of our favorite top 10 Las Vegas hotels you should book for your weekend’s trip. It won’t only let you enjoy the city that truly never sleeps, but also relax a bit since these picks are easy on your wallet too.

1. Bellagio Las Vegas

We just can’t talk about hotels in Vegas and not mention this world-known hotel, pictured in many movies and considered as one of the symbols of the city. The Bellagio is truly one of the first hotels you should consider booking for your weekend’s stay, and there are no reasons why not: Fantastic location with breathtaking views from rooms, perfect service, and the overall feeling that you are treated the best will never abandon you.

2. The Mirage Hotel & Casino

Another hotel we would love to offer you is The Mirage Hotel & Casino, located almost in the heart of Las Vegas. Surrounded by two other pretty famous hotels, Caesar and the Treasure Island, and with the Venetian and Palazzo directly across the street, this hotel stands out thanks to the room rates, which will be easy to afford for sure.

3. The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino

Cheap hotels in Las Vegas can always be your top priority, but if you are planning to stay at Vegas only for a few nights and want to pamper yourself seriously – choose the Palazzo! It is one of the legendary sites in the area, well-known for excellent quality and price balance. Suites are huge, pool area is enormous, but one thing which won’t be tremendous will be the bill since a weekend for two here should be around $206!

4. Vdara Hotel & Spa

Another hotel we would really love you to try out is Vdara Hotel and Spa, which stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique interior. Huge, open rooms and modern design create a very sophisticated feeling everyone will love. It doesn’t have a casino in the building, so if you are coming to Las Vegas not just for gambling, Vdara is perfect for you.

5. Golden Nugget Hotel

This is one of the priciest hotels on this list (however, still relatively cheap), hence Golden Nugget indeed is worth the golden title in its name. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and don’t cost that much if you think about the value. Naturally, the hotel is equipped with many great must-have Las Vegas features like a huge pool, casino and many bars and restaurants, so there might not even be a need to leave for a while – the hotel has it all. Prices for a weekend here vary around $244 for two people.

6. Mandarin Oriental

One of our personal favorites is the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas. Why is it our top pick? Well, first of all, because we love eco-friendliness and we try to be as green as we can, and in fact Mandarin is well known as one of the greenest hotels you can spend a night at! Second of all, we just love the interior of it. Third, the location is also fantastic – it is surrounded by many attractions suitable for all kinds of travelers’ taste. So, hop in, get ready to pay around $279 and enjoy your weekend in Las Vegas!

7. Venetian Resort Hotel Casino

Yet another iconic hotel you should consider choosing for your weekend at Vegas is the Venetian. Many people find this hotel being one of the most beautiful ones in the whole city and this is easy to understand once you come into the lobby of it. After all, it is decorated keeping up with Italian, and in particular, Venetian style elements so if you love Italy, but equally love Vegas – the Venetian is the one. Good news is that weekend here will cost you around $249!

8. New York – New York Hotel and Casino

Once we started talking about hotels in Vegas which were designed to celebrate one or another place, we had to mention the hotel that was built keeping NYC in mind – hence, New York Hotel and Casino is our 8th pick. Ideally located, sophisticated and equipped with amazingly friendly staff – what else can you wish for from a hotel? The weekend at this hotel for two will cost you only $150!

9. Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard

Another hotel, which is well located and can amaze you with its excellent price and quality is Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard. It is surely one of the best choices for budget-caution travelers since a weekend here will need just $169 from your wallet – that is not that much to leave! Furthermore, after reading reviews online about this hotel, one thing comes clear: People do love it since it is a little bit further away from all the buzz of Las Vegas, yet still comfortably close to all the stores and clubs and casinos (hotel doesn’t have a casino in its building). Excellent choice indeed!

10. Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino

And the last hotel we would like to recommend you is Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. It is one of those hotels that is worth the title of having the best value for money. Rooms here are spacious, clean, service is excellent, and it has everything you might be looking for in a hotel. Here you will find great places to eat, drink, have fun and relax. Moreover, Mandalay is just around 5 minutes away from one of the airports in Vegas, so if you are a total newbie in town, you won’t have to wander around trying to reach the hotel you book. Finally, a weekend here would cost you $145, which is the smallest price range on this list!

8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

In life, we all need to be conscientious of what we are doing. You don’t need to live a life of stress if you don’t want to. You can achieve peace and happiness in life by carefully building mindfulness exercises into your life’s routine.

Exercising mindfulness isn’t rocket science and as importantly, you can do it. It will, however, take a few tries to get into the groove of things but once you get it, it is like riding a bike, you will never lose it.

Trust me. It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. In this article, I will share with you 8 mindfulness exercises that will help you to boost your energy, vitality and live a more peaceful and happier life.

Why Is It Hard to Live A Peaceful And Happy Life?

Our Habitat Has Become Too Technological

The world has accepted the idea that technology is often the cure for all evil. We have accepted, as a society, that everything technological will make us live a better life without fully investigating the many side effects that modernity brings.

There are a number of technological side effects that have a tremendous impact on your life that the media rarely tells you about.[1] Some of them include self-harm, economic inequality, having less sex, and even suicide. The global community is becoming less happy because of technology.

How can anybody live a peaceful and happy life when they are depressed? Technology advancements, ladies and gents, is a major reason for why we are living a poor life because it has infiltrated our lives too much.

According to my research, Americans spend an average of 8 hours a day looking at the computer screen — The average screen time spent on smartphones alone is about 20 hours per week. That’s a lot! No wonder why living a happy and peaceful life is so difficult these days.

Too Many People Don’t Want to Unplug

Americans check their phones an average of 80 times during vacation.[2] Some admit to checking their smartphones 300 times every single day. In countries like Brazil, India and China, the situation is no different.

The reality is that people are constantly plugged into technological devices and this behavior is literally making people all over the globe fight an inner war with themselves, which consequently makes them very sad. As we know, war is the enemy of peace which won’t make anybody happy.

Listen carefully:

We have a global anxiety epidemic because people don’t want to unplug from their smartphones and most people aren’t doing anything to fix it. It is a sad state of affairs but very real. This obsession with technology is turning us into perishable robots who live terrible lives.

The era of anxiety is here to stay. There is little doubt about it. We can, however, fight back with the best remedy of all — We call it mindfulness!

Thank God there is an antidote to this whole technological madness. Without further ado, let’s go straight to the mindful exercises.

8 Mindfulness Exercises to Start Practicing

There are tons of mindfulness exercises available for you to engage with out there.[3] In the paragraphs below, I will include the best ones I’ve personally tried or have seen my close friends and family members try.

Are you ready for it? Let’s go!

1. Pray Daily

You should pray on a daily basis. Why is that you may ask — Well, because science has told us to do so.

When people pray, they feel peaceful, almost eliminating anxiety. Worries become secondary, and often gives people energy and hope to cope with the difficulties of life.

Prayer can make you more confident and focused. Prayer also helps you with self-control, helps to control pain, and can protect you against illnesses and disorders like cancer and high blood pressure. At least, this is what researchers from Harvard Medical School have said.[4]

Pray. You won’t regret it.[5]

2. Pay Attention to Your Inner Thoughts

A lot of people allow themselves to be influenced by their negative thoughts. Be different and resist believing in them. It is a bad habit that can lead to unhappiness.

By the way, if you do feel this way, chances are high that somebody other than you put these thoughts into your head.

Here is my secret to combat this cancer — look at things objectively. I bet that if you look at things as they are, you will realize that most if not all of your negative thoughts are only inside of your head.

If you pay close attention, you will quickly realize that these voices aren’t worth your time. Believe me — Ignoring them and looking at things with objectivity is often the best course of action.

3. Smile Often

Smiling will slow down your heart. It will also relax your body because when you smile, your body releases endorphins which in itself has a number of positive benefits for you as a person.

Smile often! You may want to smile early in the morning, during the day, and late in the evening. It is amazing what happens to you when you decide to smile instead of being grumpy.

Surrender your problems to a nice smile. You will notice two things. First, most people just don’t which makes them live a miserable life. Second, if you decide to smile often, you will eventually smile unconsciously which is the ideal.

The moment that you smile unconsciously, you then know that you are truly happy.

4. Organize Your Working Desk

A messy desk will make you less productive and can agitate and overstimulate you. You don’t want that.

When you clear your desk, you engage in deep inner-thinking and your systematic decision making ends up becoming therapeutic.

Most people realize that they are most creative when their creative space is clean and organized. The former often makes people more aware of what they are doing which lends to less stress and more productivity.

Organizing your desk will also make you more energetic and focused because order often decreases chaos which is a condition that often slows down daily progress.

5. Celebrate Your Friend’s Victories

I love this mindful exercise. One of the best ways to live a happy and peaceful life is to celebrate the victories of others. When you do that, you automatically make your friends in a better mood which makes you in a better mood, as well.

Happiness is contagious! We might as well celebrate others as much as we can. If you find out that your peer has won an award, celebrate with him! If your friend is the recipient of a local charity award, celebrate with her!

What is also awesome is that when you celebrate with others, they often celebrate with you in return. This, ladies and gentleman, will make you feel fantastic. You can’t go wrong with this one, period.

6. Listen to Your Spouse/Partner

God put someone in your life for a reason. You might as well listen to him or her.

I listen to my wife everyday. In fact, I often ask the following question to her, “Amanda, what are your thoughts about…” or “What am I missing about…” It is shocking what I hear back from her. Without her having much context and perspective, by the art of observation in my own nonverbal behavior and the behavior of others, she accurately gives me incredible insights which helps me out with living my life to the fullest.

I’m a firm believer that spouses are supposed to engage in interpersonal communication every day. I most definitely do and will continue doing it. You should do the same.

7. Give Yourself a Break from Technology

You can’t be in total equilibrium if your computerized devices control your life. You must get away from technology on a daily basis.[6]

How do you do that? This is my formula:

First, take this smartphone control test. It is only ten questions but this test will place you somewhere in the human robot cycle continuum.

If your score is between 25-30, take a break from the computer (or smartphone, pad, laptop/desktop) every twenty minutes and stop being on a computerized device after 8:00pm.

If you score between 30-35, still take a break every 20 minutes but stop being on these devices at 5:00pm.

If you score more than 35, you need to take action immediately.

Limit computer use as much as possible throughout the day. Give yourself as many breaks from the computer as possible. Are you ready for the challenge?

8. Go Exercise

Go exercise at least three times a week. I don’t care if you need to workout early in the morning, late in the evening, on the weekends or during work days. Working out is absolutely imperative for you to live happy and peaceful life.

The stresses of the modern world are too much for you to neglect this important mindfulness exercise. When you go to the gym, you burn calories, focus on activities one step at a time, your mind relaxes, anxiety decreases, you sweat and often think about topics unrelated to your work place among many other benefits.

You must exercise at least three hours each week for optimum results. Why? Just take a look at all the benefits of regular exercising:

The Bottom Line

It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. Now that our habitat has become too technological and many people just don’t want to unplug, engaging in daily prayer, celebrate your friends’ victories, and listening to your spouse are among the best ways to be mindful about what you are doing and how you are living.

It is possible to live a happy and peaceful life. It only depends on you.

Go exercise! Take a break from technology and invest in you! Life is too short for distractions.
