Having a healthy body and mind enables us to live fully, to be present with the people we love and have energy to do the things that we enjoy.
Wellness is about fueling the body with delicious, nutritious food that enables our system to work effectively and sustainably.
Staying active and moving in ways that feel joyous and expansive.
About learning when to slow down, to hit re-set and take the time out to unwind and find peace.
Our fast-paced modern lifestyles are not always conducive to this.
We all benefit from the self-care and love involved in taking care of ourselves.
An opportunity to nourish and cherish ourselves, to take a step back from the pace of 'normal' life.
Let's remember too that this is a holiday first.
So there should be lots of pool, spa, relaxation and healthy eating.
And why not treat yourself to spa packages on your time away to make the most of it.
It's not always we get the chance to press the reset button and take some time out.
Time spent on our health and wellbeing is priceless.
There are different levels to participate in.
You will be able to match your expectations and enjoy the detox retreat that you want.
Maybe that's to eat healthy raw food and drink vegetable juices.
You can combine this with any different activity focus that you are interested in.
Or there's juice or water fasting with colonic treatments for those
who want to experience fasting of the body and mind.
Mind and body will benefit and you will come away with new opportunities ahead of you.
Change comes from new disciplines and practice, and a retreat
is a great place to start this process.
Enjoy nutritious food, spa packages and
activities that benefit us, from fitness to meditation.
So the real question is what type of retreat is the right one for
you and what is available.
Our wellness practices are a rewarding and positive feedback loop.
The body loves healthy raw food and vegetable juices and it lets you know this.
Activity in yoga or fitness combines with this healthy eating and the body and mind feel different.
Stress and fatigue can be a thing of the past. A different way of living is
available to us through wellness programs.
Happiness is our natural state of being, and when we are in harmony in body, mind and spirit,
finding that place of simple peace and joy becomes much easier.
Living a healthy lifestyle offers us more time, more energy, more space
and awareness. Investing in our health is an investment in our future.
And the best part is, it's fun and enjoyable.
Wellness retreats have become quite an attraction these days with so many classes, instructors and services. There are even retreats with a focus on exploring meditation if that is what you would like to do.
They also offer great healthy menus so you can enjoy your time with a variety of healthy raw food throughout.
