Long Lasting Health Benefits Await You
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” It’s advice as essential to heed in the 21st century as it was back in the 1700s. The pandemic has shined a spotlight on the fact that tomorrow is never promised to any of us. If you’ve included taking a wellness retreat on your bucket list, now is the time to follow through and book this important getaway.
Benefits of a wellness retreat
A wellness retreat isn’t like any other vacation you may have taken. Instead, it is a rewarding and beneficial adventure to enhance your mental and spiritual well-being and overall health. Here’s how:
Step away from the stress: Living in today’s society involves dealing with numerous stressors. When someone experiences stress, dopamine is released. It’s helpful for “fight or flight” responses, but dealing with a lot of stress all the time means constantly having a high level of dopamine that is harmful to mental and physical health. When you take a wellness retreat, you get a break from that stress so you can reset yourself.
Actively engage with ‘me’ time: Wellness retreats allow participants to step from the daily grind and the demands imposed by others. In our day-to-day, we give parts of ourselves to others, including family, friends, co-workers, and bosses. You can open your schedule to only yourself during a retreat and do so without guilt. Dedicate time and mental space to reflect, relax and recharge.
Refine meditation skills: Meditation helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves. While there are numerous health benefits, finding time and space for meditation can be a challenge during our daily lives. Wellness retreats provide the perfect mental space to decompress and focus.
Open yourself to healing and inspiration: There’s time for self-discovery and healing work during a wellness retreat. Above all, while it is a time to relax, recharge, and focus on mindfulness, participants will likely walk away with inspiration and processes that help them move forward productively long after returning home.
Rebalance. Breathe. Heal. Recharge.
