Vacations to Refresh, Renew & Revitalize YOU!

We all know that the last 2+ years have been long and stressful and you need a break!  You have heard for many years that taking a vacation is beneficial for your overall physical and mental health. But you may want more!
 
Taking a specifically designed “wellness” vacation can have even more added benefits. Whether you choose a wellness retreat, or a spa vacation or a combination, here are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

Focus on your health goals

Disconnecting from your everyday life and finding the inspiration you need to reach your goals is vital. Whether they are weight loss, fitness, mindfulness or simply a reset for your everyday habits, it’s much easier to start when you are away from your daily routine. This opportunity to start fresh is priceless, and hard to do when you have the distractions of your everyday routine.


Change your food habits

Most wellness escapes will offer healthy choices with gourmet flair. Trying new foods is one of my favorite parts of vacationing but trying ones that have a positive impact on your health is even better. Cooking classes, learning how to shop and finding new ways to look at and experience foods can be part of your journey.

Heal with nature

Wellness Resorts are usually located in beautiful, intimate destinations. This gives you the chance to reconnect with nature. Whether they are in the mountains, or desert or along the ocean, you can find a resort that will fit your persona and put you in the perfect mindset for a tranquil getaway. Simply being in nature can make for a better day.

Find your perfect sleep

Another benefit from getting away from your daily grind is rediscovering sleep. Americans are consistently losing sleep due to a variety of reasons. Most wellness resorts also understand the importance of sleep and cater to that.  Rooms are designed to be tranquil and many resorts offer meditation and aromatherapy to help you sleep better and even let you pick what kind of pillow you want.  Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

 

De-stress for success

Stress can have a negative impact on your health - from heart issues, to stomach trouble, to high blood pressure to inflammation and diabetes. Relaxation is key to your well-being. A wellness vacation allows you to take the time to get pampered, and find new ways to center yourself which will not only lower stress, but also teach you ways to help you manage stress in the future.

Wellness Resorts - Something for EVERYONE - really!
