We all have a lot going on. With schedules, projects, and endless to-do lists, don't you deserve a break? Take a chance to get away and relax, do some yoga, eat chef-prepared meals and recharge. Well, how does a luxury wellness retreat sound?
Sometimes, what we need and what our budget allows don’t always agree. So, here’s how to save money and get all the benefits of a relaxing getaway from your next staycation:
Try new fitness classes - Exercise is a huge part of wellness, so let this be your chance to try a new class you’ve been interested in, but haven’t tried yet.
Eat well or even better - Wellness retreats are known for having award-winning healthy food chefs and organic cuisine, so treat yourself to some healthy, nutrient-dense meals you wouldn’t normally make at home to help your body run at its best.
Host a gathering - The social aspect is a big part of a wellness retreat, so throw a get together at home and hang with some friends while you’re taking time for yourself.
Book spa treatments - One of the best parts of a spa getaway is the pampering treatments. So get a massage, a facial, or whatever your heart desires. And if your budget doesn’t allow it, take a bubble bath and do a face mask - all the zen without the price tag.
Take a hike - Wellness resorts are usually in a lovely nature setting with plenty of outdoor activities nearby, so create your own adventure with a hike at a local trail or a park. Get your vitamin D, some fresh air and maybe even feel the grass under your feet.
Power off - A lot of those retreats have strict rules about staying away from technology. And even though you feel like you can’t live without being constantly connected, you really can.
