You know the drill – New Year’s Resolutions prompt us all to be better, look better, feel better. We join gyms, declutter and meal prep. But once January ends, motivation can stagger when we’re faced with 11 more months of commitment. Instead of being swayed by the easy way out, be your strongest YOU by taking part in a wellness retreat.
Studies show (https://www.spafinder.com/blog/spa-travel/why-you-should-go-on-a-wellness-retreat/) that wellness retreats, detoxes, yoga and meditation have the power to give mental and emotional healing by helping you make changes from within. You can set your reset button, bask in a beautiful location with delicious food, learn something new and take home positive memories.
