You’ve heard the saying, “put your oxygen mask on first.” This statement is probably overused, but it is so accurate. Very different from your typical vacation, wellness retreats are enriching escapes that provide a safe haven to allow a deeper physical and emotional break from the stress of life.
With delicious, nourishing meals, Christian meditation and yoga, retreats offer a healthy alternative to a normal holiday break and provide a much more intimate environment than your run of the mill, mega all-inclusive hotels.
Each retreat can be tailored to your needs, allowing you to truly unplug, re-balance, and shift your mental and spiritual wellbeing back on track.
Not completely convinced?
Here are several motivating factors that should persuade you to consider investing in a wellness retreat for yourself:
1.TIME TO REFLECT, RENEW AND RESTORE
A Christian luxury wellness retreat can be life changing because it provides you with time to reconnect with yourself & your creator, God by bringing back adventure and joy in your life. Making sure to include an element of faith helps you grow and gain clarity in your Christian walk. When we are spiritually balanced, we can become more effective in every area of our lives.
2. AWAY FROM YOUR HOME AND DAILY ROUTINE
Wellness retreats are usually situated in peaceful locations in natural or serene settings, offering you the perfect space to reboot. Cultural immersions and excursions are also often offered. These excursions can provide you with a renewed sense of adventure and help you reconnect with your inner child (think luxury summer camp for adults.)
3. A SHIFT TO A MORE INTENTIONAL WAY OF LIFE
After a retreat, participants tend to return to their busy, demanding lives with a sense of renewal, empowerment, and clarity. The experience gained helps them make a more conscious decision in in life.
4. NATURE IS HEALING
As human beings, we are part of natural ecosystems and depend on them for their survival. Most of us don’t get that exposure very much at home. Have you ever noticed how you feel so peaceful and close to God in natural settings, such as a in a garden, at the beach or in the mountains?
5. IMPROVED DECISION MAKING
Multitasking, the addiction to digital stimulation lead to poor decision-making. Investing in a retreat is the act of dedicating intentional time to your thoughts, heart and actions so you can make good decisions.
We can’t leave this one out! Taking time for massages and other spa treatments are generally offered at retreats. Massages relieve stress, pain & muscle tension as well as detoxify the body.
For your next vacation, why not go on a wellness retreat and allow yourself to truly unwind and spark the joy and adventure of life again? Don’t wait until you feel burned out in your job or life. Remember; you cannot serve from an empty vessel.
By Investing in a wellness retreat, you are investing in yourself. You will return home empowered, restored and inspired.
