We all have heard of Wellness retreats in some form or another. Especially these days where there is a Retreat that includes just about every interest you might have. Overall, retreats are a time to connect with ourselves and learn and grow as individuals. But how many of us have actually taken one? You spend a lot of time thinking about it and how wonderful it would be. Yet something stops you, usually the time or the money. At least that's the reason you give yourself. The real reason is that you aren't making yourself a priority. Imagine, though, if you truly believed that you are the most valuable person/thing in your life. Time and money suddenly become less of a hinderance, reason or obstacle because you know you are worth it.
Wellness retreats reinforce you as a top priority in your life. The focus of a retreat is always on how to be, feel, and live better.
If valuing yourself above all else isn't reason enough to embark on a wellness retreat, here are 6 more reasons.
You will learn or discover something new about yourself. A retreat allows you the time and space to reconnect with the pieces of yourself that you may have forgotten.You will unplug (for a short time at least) from everything trivial that is consuming too much of your time.Not only will you discover things about yourself, you'll also explore other cultures and connect with people and nature on more intimate levels.The more knowledge you have of yourself the more you are able to build solid, healthy relationships - including the one with yourself.It helps you to find your purpose and recenter yourself. A retreat gives you the peace and quiet you need to really explore your feelings and get to the core of the changes you need to make.It's all about you - no excuses, no rationalizing, no feeling bad, no worrying about others - Your concentration is 100% on you. How often does that happen?
Your well being is the one thing you can control in your life. There is always room to learn, grow, and better yourself. So what are you waiting for embark on your wellness journey!
