“I need a vacation from my vacation”
A familiar phrase many of us have uttered after an exciting but exhausting vacation. How often have you come back from vacation, completely worn out and feeling like you need time off to recover from your trip, amazing as it was?
You’re not alone in feeling this way. Vacations should be a chance to see and do new things, not suffer burn out!
So what if I told you you could go on vacation to exotic locales and come back relaxed, well rested and ready to take on the challenges of daily life?
Enter the wellness retreat vacation.
A wellness retreat vacation is a chance to rest, rejuvenate, and recoup from the stresses and responsibilities of daily life. Think of it as an opportunity for you to catch up with yourself – mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Here are five reasons to consider going on a wellness retreat vacation.
1. CATCH UP WITH YOURSELF
Wellness retreats are usually in idyllic locations, offering you the perfect setting to unwind and tune in to your inner thoughts. Here is where you’ll be able to get out of your head and away from the mundane and the routine and just focus on whatever it is that takes your fancy. Journaling? Meditating? Going on long walks? So much more inspiring when the backdrop isn’t your usual four walls.
2. DEVELOP A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
Away from the distractions of family, friends and career stress is where you’ll have a clear head to evaluate where you are in life and where you want to be in the future. Is the stress of that new high paying job really worth your mental health? Are you in a toxic relationship that needs to be ended? It’s much easier to ask the tough questions and be objective about the situation when you’re physically and mentally removed from the scenario.
3. COMMIT TO HEALTHY EATING HABITS
Many times, it’s not that you don’t have the commitment to eat healthy, you just don’t have the willpower switched on 24/7. With a wellness retreat where nutrition and eating clean is the focus, you’ll be surround by a likeminded community looking to achieve the same goals. You’ll not only be provided with nutritious meals, but the support required to kick your junk cravings and start eating for your health.
4. ACCESS TO EXPERT HELP

5. EXPLORE A NEW DESTINATION
Cuz let’s be honest, yoga retreats and the likes usually take place in exotic locales featuring breathtaking landscapes as the backdrop. Be it the pristine beaches of Bali or the mountains of the Swiss Alps, we can’t deny that detoxing with a side of sun, sea and a change of scene is tres appealing. A vacation where you make memories in new locations and come back healthy, fit and motivated? Yes please!
