Unplug and Escape: Digital Detox and Low-Pollution Retreats in UK

We often all think we need to disappear to the mountains of Outer Mongolia in order to un-plug and get away from it all, when in reality, here in the UK we have some amazing pollution-free areas, digital detox retreats and yes, Even areas of no phone signal, right on our door steps!  From the Highlands of Scotland to the Wild Atlantic Coast in Ireland/ Northern Ireland or Anglesey just off the coast of Wales. We really do take for granted these world renowned locations that are right here under our noses all with an air pollution rating under 10!! So if we want to thank the dreaded ‘C’ word for if anything, its maybe that it now gives us the beautiful opportunity to go and explore our own lands and really appreciate what we have right here at home. There are some gorgeous quaint little retreats here in the UK, and we at Retreatmi have some exciting experiences coming on board for you all to try! Our 4 day Scotland Retreat in Glencoe, with an air pollution rating of just 2! Will allow you to enjoy cycling through the beautiful Scottish countryside, hiking up a Munroe (Scottish for mountain) and even tasting some of the local delicacies! All hosted by your local guide.I even have some delightful ideas for you to patch on to the start or end of your trip whilst in Scotland.For the budget conscious, The Red Squirrel Campsite is an all time favourite of mine in Glencoe and just a short drive from the UK’s largest mountain Ben Nevis. It has the most beautiful surroundings being in the middle of three large Munroe’s, a natural spring that runs through the centre, where the owners have dug out an amazing pool for you to take a dip in the refreshing waters after your heavy day of hiking or cycling. Of course due to the surrounding Munroe’s you’d better make sure you have your maps downloaded for your active routes, because phone signal is not likely to be available here……. That’s right sit back, listen the sounds of the birds and the river and enjoy!For those with children or even just for the child within us, you can visit the Glenfinnan Viaduct where the infamous Harry Potter steam train, aka The Jacobite, goes across the viaduct just like the scene in the movie. Then why not take a trip over to the beautiful Isle of Skye and go hunt for fairies in the fairy pools (as featured in our blog photo).For the active adults, visit Knoydart and the UK’s most remote pub “The Old Forge”! All still entirely off grid you can reach Knoydart through a hike over the Munroe’s or via the boat from Mallaig.Another option if you have a little more to spare is to hire a boat and head from Fort William up to Inverness along the Caledonian Canal. A completely unique experience sailing through the mountains and Loch’s of Scotland…….. Just be sure to watch out for Nessy! Make stops along the way, try the local delicacies, take awesome hikes or even just relax and sail. Next on my list of recommendations for those who enjoy getting out on their bikes is our 4 Day Lake District Retreat,  with an air pollution rating of just 7 not only can you enjoy some beautiful views and see the inspiration behind many of the UK’s inspired poets and writers, you can take in some of the freshest air England has to offer. Again some little patch on’s…….. being the avid camper I am, which I’m sure you can tell by now I highly recommend the BaysBrown Farm campsite, again between peaks of the lake district this gorgeous campsite is right on the Langsdale estate, right next to the quaint and beautiful village of Ambleside and you can start the Scarfell Pike (England’s highest mountain) climb right from the campsite!Again for those who prefer to climb into a big luxurious bath tub and bask in front of a log fire at the end of their tough hiking day, I can’t recommend The Brimstone at Langdale enough. Their rooms are to die for! From rooms with two baths or split level mezzanine rooms, all come complete with log burner, plush woollen blankets to relax and on your balcony where you can sit and enjoy your super breakfast served to your room. If you’re having a treat for special occasion, love the outdoors but want to get away from it all in luxury……. This is YOUR spot!....... again phone signal little or none…….but you will have the option of Wi-Fi, should you be a diehard digi!Again for the child in and out, you can visit the House of Betrix Potter and see the real gardens featured in the illustrations of her books, visit the spots where Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck used to hang out and all that inspired their adventures. To burn off some steam visit and really immerse in nature go visit Treetop Trek & Nets and well……hangout. We are excited to be featuring some amazing active experiences throughout our own lands and even across Europe! So be sure to sign up and stay informed for when our UK retreats go live soon!

How Tropical Retreats and Holiday Travels Changed My Life

How Tropical Retreats and Holidays Changed My Life: I’ll never forget the first time I boarded a plane by myself, I was 21 and just graduated from my Nutrition Degree at Uni in Manchester UK, so young now I look back at 21 year olds! But what can I say the excitement of tropical retreats and mystical lands had been my dream since I was in school! I think I must have been an avid adventurer in a previous life as I feel like I’ve had this travel itch for as long as I can remember!  Typical of myself I didn’t start with a short run across to Paris, no I had big dreams! And the wild outdoors of Austraila beckoned. I remember being petrified getting on such a long flight alone, if only I could have spoken to future me!...... I’d have laughed! Future me would have said “hey you’ll be doing this trip from Dubai to San Paolo for 24 hours in two years time!”  And so I landed in the land down under where I did the most incredible outback journey from Adelaide up to Uluru, camping out in the wild in swags, gazing up at the stars, trekking canyons and visiting Opal mines. I of course being the young backpacker I was did the east coast route and embarked on some of the amazing sailing trips that area has to offer! I actually spent my 22nd birthday immersed in the rainforest, absolutely no phone signal (yes there were mobiles back then) and surrounded by nature! To date one of my most memorable birthdays! I long for these digital free zones when taking time off now……..one of my Retreatmi missions! On one Canoeing trip in Byron Bay we even accidentally came across Humpback Whales, I remember at the time being completely petrified…….I WAS IN A TINY CANOE!! But sitting watching those amazing beasts not even 100m from me, completely vulnerable to their size was just beautiful, yes I was scared but my was it exhilarating and a moment I will never forget for the rest of my life. I feel truly blessed to have gazed upon such a sight. My first trip alone was a huge learning curve, not only did it increase my self confidence, standing on my own two feet and getting to know people from all different walks of life, I learnt how to communicate better, to start conversations with people I didn’t know, to be sensitive to different cultures. Travelling alone really was an education and a liberation. I learnt so much on this trip and from a Uni going child I became a young adult, able to think on my feet and quickly create rapport which I found because fundamental tools when moving into a work environment. Also just being able to listen and understand and not assume we all think the same on a worldly basis. If you are considering taking a solo trip I highly recommend, yes its scary! But bravcery is only ever born from fear and I promise you! You will meet amazing people! You will have amazing experiences! And you will learn things about yourself and others that you will have with you for the rest of your life! STAY SAFE, STAY WILL & ALWAYS KEEP DREAMINGXX STACEY XX

5 Reasons Why A Beach Wellness Retreat Is Good For You

There’s more to the beach than what meets the eye, and it’s more beneficial than just enjoying the  natural beauty and fluffy, white sand. It turns out it’s a good place to retreat and good for your whole being – body, soul, and mind. If you are looking for a wellness retreat to help you reset from the inside out, choosing a beach setting might be your best choice. Here are a few reasons the beach is such a great location to spend your health and wellness retreat.Natural GroundingIn our hectic lifestyles, we’ve become more disconnected from nature. Connecting to the Earth by something as simple as a walk can help reduce fatigue, chronic pain, and countless other ailments many people deal with today. “Grounding” is the term used for connecting to the ground underneath us. If you can walk barefoot, there are many vital life-giving health benefits. The soles of your feet have more nerve endings and sweat glands per square cm than any other place on the body. Walking barefoot along the sandy beach can stimulate these nerve endings while grounding you and restoring a natural flow of energy in your body.Big Dose of Vitamin DAnother benefit of planning your health and wellness retreat near the water is that you’ll get a good dose of Vitamin D. The best way to increase your vitamin D levels is direct exposure to the sun. There are many physical benefits for your body when you get plenty of sunshine, plus it can be a great mood booster. Your good health depends on vitamin D, and those who find themselves deficient can be at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, elevated blood pressure, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and more. No matter what time of year you choose to be seaside or ocean side, the exposure to the sun provides essential vitamin D and boosts your mood and your health.Big Dose of Vitamin SeaA nice swim in the sea or the ocean can be life-affirming and replenishing. Not only is it beneficial for helping fight off infection, but there are also many benefits for both mind and body. If you attend a wellness retreat near the sea and enjoy a swim, seawater has lots of essential minerals such as iodine, potassium, and magnesium. It also has a therapeutic effect and helps the body detox and heal itself. Just visiting the beach and being able to immerse yourself in the ocean air can be beneficial for your health. The air fills you with negative ions which molecularly attach to lung tissue and boosts your metabolism. Swimming in the salty ocean opens the skin’s pores and detoxes while absorbing minerals. A Boost to Creativity and ProductivityWellness retreats near the ocean can be more calming as the ocean has a mildly meditative state, which means you are calm and peaceful. It leads you to a sense of happiness and satisfaction. Beside the ocean or the sea is called blue spaces. Not only does it have a grounding effect, but it also helps you clear your mind. Being able to clear your head lets you tackle the big problems. Guided meditation near the water is an effective stress reliever. Wellness retreats at the beach encourage calmness and you can tune out all the negativity and busy-ness and spend time reflecting on the things that really need your focus.Indirectly Improves RelationshipsBeing close to water or on the beach provides you with a rest restful, contemplative state. It’s very likely you’ll have a sense of awe. Who wouldn’t, right? There are stunning views, the enormity of the sky, and the vastness of the ocean that provides you with feelings of being connected beyond yourself. This transfers you to a “we” state of mind. No wonder there are so many honeymoons, marriages, and proposals that occur in coastal locations.

Wellness Retreat Trends: Embracing Farm to Table Dining

The latest trends in tourism includes wellness retreats. More and more people are turning to detoxing physically and mentally and using wellness vacations and retreats to help. Dubai and other locations throughout the Middle East are quickly becoming hot tourism spots and wellness retreats are a huge part of the changes occurring throughout the region. Those seeking healthy vacations can choose between a variety of health and wellness retreats that focus on specific things like tech detox, yoga and meditation, fitness, or eating well. One of the latest trends in the wellness retreat industry includes farm to table dining.Why Farm to Table Dining?Eating is a critical part of our health. Wellness retreats focus on whole-body health and wellness which includes putting an emphasis on what is consumed. Farm to table is a trend which puts an emphasis on how food is produced, prepared, and stored. Dining is focused on providing fresh foods sourced from local arms and gardens. Foods are prepared fresh without being preserved or frozen and taste fresher – because they are fresh. When the food supply comes directly to the kitchen without being processed in any way, it cuts out the middle man and provides healthy meal alternatives.Benefits of Farm to Table DiningUsing all natural ingredients for food preparation is a focus at most wellness retreats because of the connection between a healthy body and a healthy mind. It can be an important part of detoxifying the body’s systems and acts as a “reset” for many. Using freshly grown foods directly from the farm to prepare meals removes the need for using preservatives. Participants enjoy meals prepared using only natural ingredients rather than those mass produced. Being able to avoid packaged, prepared foods means consuming fewer calories and less salt, fat, and sugar. Instead more natural ingredients and spices are used to prepare meals.Foods used in farm to table dining are not shipped or stored for long periods of time. When foods are shipped long distances, they are harvested long before they ripen so they will endure the journey. However, picking fresh foods long before they are ripe means they do not have the opportunity to mature fully and much of their nutritive value can be lost. Farm to table dining allows foods to fully ripen and mature before harvesting. The fully mature, nutritiously rich foods are then taken directly to the kitchen providing more wholesome and nutritious dining options.Preparing and consuming foods when they are in season can also provide a wide range of benefits. The entire meal can be locally grown in a sustainable environment. It encourages locally operated farms to adopt and maintain sustainable practices such as organic farming and raising non-GMO crops. Dining will include foods and ingredients as they are in season, so the menu may change frequently to reflect these options. Farm to Table Marries Wellness RetreatsObviously, there are health benefits related to eating farm-to-table, but what makes it such a draw at fitness and wellness retreats? The mind and body work together in a person’s journey toward health. Some wellness retreats focus on yoga and meditation and others focus on providing healthy exercises like bike riding, hiking, or other engaging and beneficial activities. Farm to table dining gives a health retreat a holistic element by providing clean, sustainable foods. Incorporating this element creates a connection between the body, mind, and soul. This connectivity can help encourage continued lifestyle changes long after the retreat has come to an end.  Check out one of our amazing farm to table properties here:https://retreatmi.com/property-details?propertyId=ODI=&from=&to=&adult=1&child=

Why Bali Is The Perfect Place To Heal A Broken Heart

It was an interesting week this week seeing our google analytics (yes I’ve become one of those AI obsessive’s) and more so seeing what it was that people searched for when they stumbled their way on to my little platform. My heart sank a when I saw how many people had searched for reatreats to help with heart break or healing retreats after a relationship breakdown. Knowing this heartbreaking feeling all too well I wanted to focus a little on the healing center that is Bali. A place there is such intense heart energy it’s sometimes a tad overwhelming for those who are in need of its power. So I wanted to touch on that beautiful heart energy in Bali on todays blog, I hope it helps all those gorgeous wellness adventurers out there who are in need of a little TLC, big loving hugs coming to all of you from the Retreatmi Team! Traveling for wellness is now a popular trend. This is putting pressure on hotels and resorts to find various ways for guests to explore and develop in health and wellness while they are on vacation. However, on the Island of Bali, this has been a constant feature. The culture is one of energy and many seek out heart energy in Bali and explore the area for opportunities in healing. Bali is a center for spirituality and self-discovery. People flock there to learn more about healing, meditation, yoga and consciousness ultimately looking for transformation. But why Bali? And what is it about the area that provides such a powerful energy? Why seek Heart Energy in Bali?Those who have visited Bali are quick to speak of how special it is from the locals to stunning nature to their rich culture. In the body, there are chakras or energy centers to help keep us healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. Animals also have chakras and so does the earth. These energy centers have electrical currents running in and out and surround the whole plant. If you could map these out, they would look somewhat like a DNA strand. The energetic lines join in two points on the planet. One is in Lake Titicaca also called the Sacral Chakra. And the other place these Ley Lines meet is in Bali. This may explain one reason behind the energy found in Bali. The island is an energy vortex with two Ley Lines intersecting. It’s also the one place where many find the earth’s Kundalini energy This vortex is thought to be a place or purification, cleansing and rejuvenation of the soul and the body. No wonder so many seek and receive heart energy in Bali.What is Heart Energy? Heart energy is a broadband, vibrational energy that is simple, loving, giving, welcoming, and receiving. The love element so many are seeking is tied up in it so it’s an easy energy for most to grasp and understand. When you have a love-filled experience that comes from loving on any person, object, or thing you want you feel good. Peacefulness is the final result. It’s a type of energy that brings you closer to the Universe and lets you expand your being. It allows you to become whole again and brings both fire and light inside. As it expands out from your body, it allows you to approach and touch others. Benefits of Heart EnergyWhen you can open up to the Universe, it is always beneficial. It restores and rejuvenates the feelings of joy, passion, and love inside. But it also brings healing in the body. Sometimes the healing comes in an area you didn’t know needed it. You may find yourself moving at a faster pace. When the energy of the heart opens up, you will experience peace and enlightenment. The more people who experience this loving energy, the more peace and love will come to the planet.Finding Heart Energy in BaliThe Island of Bali is often called the “Island of the Gods.” It is a tropical paradise and popular tourist destination. In Bali, you will find a wide variety of resorts that can help you find heart energy. Not only will you be on “vacation” but these wellness resorts help you relax and heal so when you return home you are healthier in your mind, body, and soul.iWakening is just one such retreat that leads participants to awaken their heart’s potential. Over the course of 10 days, you’ll learn how to work with your heart energy field using a variety of tools. Fivelements resort is another option for achieving and learning about Heart Energy in Bali. Their therapies focus on healing with meditation include chakra balancing sessions, prana energy healing, and deep bodywork to employ the five elements which are used to heal the body. These are just two examples of the many resources found in Bali for those seeking heart energy. There are many resorts, healthy vacations, spas and retreats that guide the visitor to healing and heart energy by incorporating yoga, meditation, detoxification, and many other tools to help them achieve holistic healing. The goal goes beyond just seeking peace one time. Instead, it offers sustainable lifestyle changes the visitor can take home with them to make their lives better.

The Rising Travel Trend in Health and Wellness Tourism

Just a decade or so ago, the concept of wellness tourism was the exception.  However, as an industry, the rise of wellness tourism has begun to escalate beyond expectations. Over the last 10 to 15 years, wellness has seeped into almost every piece of the hospitality industry. Even the definition has evolved over time as the interest in wellness has transformed the way people travel on a global level. What is wellness tourism?Wellness tourism has been defined by the Global Wellness Institute as journeys that are “made by tourists who seek to improve or maintain their well-being during or as a result of the trip.” But with increased interest in wellness vacations the hospitality industry is scampering to find enough variety to meet the needs. It is currently growing at nearly twice the rate of the tourism industry alone and it’s expected over the next two decades to be more than a $9 billion industry. Other sectors are quickly adapting to travelers and finding new ways to incorporate wellness and healthy alternatives into current travel trends. It’s quickly changing every facet of the travel industry.Guests Tend to Spend More for Wellness OptionsIn the 1980s and 1990s, resort spas and hotels and yoga studios were not abundant. As consumers are making a demand on the industry for more wellness options, yoga studios, halotherapy, cryotherapy and other options are frequently found in urban hotels offering business guests access to a strategy for unwinding. Rooftop yoga is incorporated into sightseeing for vacationers. People are more willing to spend more time and money in exchange for options to benefit their wellness. On average, tourists will spend about 60% more on wellness vacations that traditional tourists. Couple that with the fact that wellness tourism alone accounts for at least 1/6 of all dollars spent in the tourism industry and you’ll see how lucrative it can be for hotels and other accommodations to include wellness programing on some level. As the travel industry transitions, it’s interesting to watch the innovative and creative ways the industry has begun to incorporate wellness and health into travel experiences around the world. Hotels have begun to collaborate with wellness professionals to create options onsite that go beyond the traditional treadmill in a “fitness” area. They may offer guests opportunities for relaxation, advanced healing treatments, and spa experiences. Other destinations offer a wider variety of options from  immersive wellness programs to horseback riding and biking, to meditation. Two Types of Wellness TravelersWhen wellness tourism first emerged, it might have been a smaller, elite, and wealthy group of leisure tourists who wanted to simply visit health resorts, meditation retreats, and destination spas. But it has far outgrown this small group and encompasses a much broader and more diverse group of consumers with varied motivations, values, and interests. The two types of wellness travelers include:·       Primary Wellness Travelers: This group is traveling to a destination with wellness being their main motivation.·       Secondary Wellness Travelers: This newer group looks to maintain wellness by participating in wellness experiences while they are on a trip for business or leisure purposes. Of course, the economic benefits of the wellness tourism industry outreaches the narrower set of related businesses such as spas, thermal & Mineral springs, boot camps, and wellness retreats. Today’s healthy traveler is looking for a way to sustain their healthy lifestyle while they are traveling. As an industry, this means meeting the growing demands for healthy eating, mind-body practices, exercise or fitness routines, nature experiences, and connections with the local culture and people. In addition to their wellness experience, the tourist will also need transportation, lodging, food, and entertainment which is an economic boost for the region. This not only puts a demand on the wellness tourism industry to vary their approach, it also gives the hospitality industry as well as others the opportunity to infuse wellness into all types of services and amenities.  Ultimately, wellness tourism may help many destinations mitigate the disparity of mass tourism or even over tourism since wellness travelers tend to spend more and favor authentic and unique experiences.

Dubai Set To Become A Premier Wellness Holiday & Health Retreat Destin..

Dubai is leading the way when it comes to wellness holidays and health retreats. It’s already a popular vacation destination and the tourism industry is seeing continued growth. But inside the tourism industry wellness tourism is the fastest growing sector. The country led the entire Middle East wellness tourism market last year by generating $2.7 billion and averaging 1.7 million trips over the course of the year. While stress-related ailments are on the rise, the wellness tourism industry continues to gain momentum. With these kinds of numbers and growing interest in wellness retreats, Dubai has launched several initiatives to tap into the market. The initiative is designed to set Dubai up as a premier destination for medical and wellness tourism on a global level. Let’s take a look at some of the specific actions Dubai is taking to ensure they remain a top wellness vacation destination.The Health Conscious TravelerNot too long ago, wellness services were considered a luxury or simple add-on services. As vacationers are becoming more health conscious, wellness is being woven into every aspect of everyday lives which means healthy alternatives are part of work, leisure, travel, and overall healthcare. As wellness becomes a global focus, areas like Dubai are capitalizing on the increased popularity and incorporating key concepts into industries like food and beverage, real estate, and travel. The different sectors are competing when it comes to innovative ideas for wellness services to meet the needs of health conscious travelers. Examples of this growing trend include developing advanced fitness centers in hotels and making yoga mats part of in-room services. As Dubai is being shaped into a global health and wellness destination, the opportunities for healthy and active retreats increase.Get Fit in DubaiDubai is already home to a number of fitness centers, gyms, and golf courses. But the emirate has recently added a new way, perhaps unexpected by many, to work out. One example is the new Al Qudra cycle track. The cycle loop is 86km in length and is dedicated to cycling with a few shorter options along the way. Cyclists are invited to experience the ride right through the desert with just a few city views thrown in. For those who want a more stunning picturesque images, try it at sunrise or sunset.Maybe equestrian adventures are preferred by some. Dubai is presently home to some of the top-notch horse riding facilities in the whole world. If you are looking to try something completely different, give polo a shot at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club.Health and Wellness SpasDubai has become home to some of the best spas in the world. They are great escapes that allow for external cleanliness. The One & Only Royal Mirage has what many consider to be the premier exfoliating experience anywhere in the world. The JW Marriott Marquis’ Saray Spa has been the recipient of several awards. There are several spas sprinkled throughout the region for pampering sessions. Health Adventures in HattaOne region in Dubai that is bursting with healthy adventures is Hatta. The beautiful mountain peaks and crisp air make the perfect spot for adventurous mountain bikers, hikers, nature-lovers, and adventurers in general. For those who desire healthy activities without trying to take on the mountainous terrain there are beautiful teal waters for kayaking and exploring the culture of the region while hiking. Hatta makes a great health retreat as it’s just a little more than an hour out of Dubai.Health and Wellness Retreat Boom in DubaiDubai is making its own moves to be part of the health and wellness retreat scene. They are currently involved in building a number of wellness resorts. For instance, the Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel is the very first wellness resort constructed in the Middle East. It houses the first Rayya Wellness center built in the world. The hotel focuses on the philosophy of wellbeing and the personal transformation of the body, mind, and spirit. The peaceful sanctuary is in a secluded area on the shores of Palm Jumeirah. Then there’s the MAG Creek Wellbeing Resort that is located in Dubai. The residences are designed and constructed to focus on wellness and enhance the well-being of the home. The residential apartments will soon become the largest wellness center in the world that offers numerous programs to the residents in its community. Dubai is poised to be the premier wellness holiday destination and have a number of initiatives to ensure they stay a leader in the industry.

5 Health Benefits Of Doing A Digital Detox Retreat

Today, we have the world at our fingertips, quite literally. Our worlds are quickly being consumed with cyber realities. We use our phones for virtually everything from finding directions, ordering out, keeping up with the latest news, to checking the stock markets and making financial arrangements. While our handheld technology can be beneficial in many areas of our lives, it can also be detrimental for those who overdose. Many live with the pressure to stay connected constantly without checking out from time to time. There really is such a thing as social media addiction and too much online interaction has been linked to career burnout. It may be time to consider a digital, or tech detox. There are many health benefits for those who take a techno-break. Here are five of them.Reduce Anxiety and DepressionToo much of anything is not good for you and it’s the same for technology. Some studies have been able to show a connection between the use of technology and higher anxiety levels. When you are anxious, dopamine is released by the body. Social media notifications and text messages are stimulating and trigger a release of dopamine. This encourages validation-seeking or pleasure-seeking behaviors. This can lead to a state of mental distress. On the other hand, using technology or digital devices as a means of escape leads to additional anxiety, and often depression. A digital detox can help reduce both feelings of anxiety and depression.Increase ProductivityThere’s no denying that technology is an asset for today’s companies. However, employees may be spending far too long on electronic devices. Many office workers waste time at work each day, to the tune of about 33%. Even though computers and the Internet are beneficial, they can take away from essential time employees are actually doing work. Taking time away from technological devices can help improve productivity.Build Healthier RelationshipsIt’s easy for a life to be spent in the cyber world. But it is also easy to focus on social connections and letting real-life relationships be pushed to the back. One estimate is that as many as 70% of families admit to using cellphones during mealtimes even when eating with friends and family. Stepping away from electronic devices can offer time to develop healthier real-life relationships and move social activity from online to offline interactions.Improved SleepThe body is pretty good about knowing when it’s time to sleep. When it is ready, the brain releases melatonin, a chemical to help the body relax. Looking at a screen, like a cell phone, right before bed tricks the brain into thinking it must stay awake. This prevents melatonin from being released at the right time. Without the optimal amount of melatonin, even if you do go to sleep, you won’t sleep soundly. It’s likely you will awaken for no apparent reason in the middle of the night. A digital detox can help you restore healthy sleep patterns.Improved Physical HealthWith your eyes glued to a screen of any size you’ll likely be sitting or lying down. Obesity is a growing problem on a global level and it’s partly due to inactivity because of lifestyle changes which keep people staring at a screen. This can be bad for your neck and lower back as well as your waistline. Taking a break, doing a tech detox can help you get up and moving. Your circulation will improve, and you will be amazed at how much better just moving around more can make you feel.  Taking a health retreat is a great time to invest in your health and do a tech detox. Get off the grid for a little while and reboot your system! Need some inspiration for taking a digital detox vacation or health retreat? Visit (website) to learn more!

Happiness In The Air: Benefits Of A Low Pollution Wellness Retreat

Many areas around the globe are making good attempts at improving the air we breathe. However, air pollution continues to be a health concern. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated the number of deaths each year due to exposure to outdoor air pollution to be about 4.2 million. Also worth noting, it that over 90% of the population around the world lives in areas where the air quality is over limits set by WHO. This is one reason air quality is a key concern for many and the reason many are seeking refuge at health and wellness retreats. They long for cleaner air with low air pollution.  Outdoor TherapyWellness retreats that focus on low air pollution are beginning to thrive. They offer a getaway from fireplaces, pets, gas appliances, and traffic all of which impact air quality. Using wellness themed rooms and raw nature are too ways to encourage the body to detox and get rid of all these pollutants.

It must be changed often, or the car fails to run properly. Detoxing the lungs of air pollution helps your body run more efficiently as well.  There is now scientific evidence that suggests the healing power of nature. Whether a lakefront or on a beach, the body and mind are encouraged to detox and let go of the busy-ness. Forest BathingForest bathing doesn’t been swimming in the forest.

Once out in natural surroundings your focus turns to the sights, sounds, and smells of your surroundings.

It’s been proven scientifically to help reduce stress and strengthen the immune system. When you check into a wellness retreat and leave the cell phone unplugged – you can recharge your battery. The natural surroundings help improve your energy, your inner power, and encourage you to become centered so you can re-establish your focus. It’s time to trade the buzz of the busy city for a wellness retreat with low air pollution, places that lead right up to nature’s mountains, deserts, and rivers. You cannot replicate the kind of charm or healing found in a wellness retreat.Why a wellness retreat with low air pollution?High levels of air pollution can have an adverse effect on your health. A detox retreat enhances the body’s detoxification process. Think about how hard the body is always having to work to get rid of toxins. This puts the body under a lot of stress and strain. Our cultures can easily be consumed with anxiety, stress, poor diets, and negative thought patterns that negatively impact our emotional and physical health. Poor air quality adds to the dilemma leaving the body exhausted from trying to keep all systems clear and running properly. Attending a low air pollution wellness retreat can help rejuvenate the body from the inside out. The benefit is sustained energy, clear thinking, and a stronger immune system.

5 Tips for Planning Your Wellness Holiday

A wellness holiday offers a great opportunity to get away from the nitty-gritty of everyday routines and find solace. It’s time to get grounded, find peace, and achieve an emotional reset. No matter where you have decided to go for your wellness retreat, you’ll want to consider several things before you head out. Working through these tips will ensure you get the retreat you need and achieve the goals you desire.Consider your “why”It may seem obvious, but you do need to give lots of consideration to why you are going on your wellness retreat  and what you hope to accomplish. It may simply be a way for you to unplug from your day-to-day responsibilities and recharge. A retreat can take many forms and maybe you’ll be practicing yoga, meditating, or getting a massage to help you unwind.  Perhaps you just want a tech detox. Spend some time thinking about your “why” for a wellness retreat. It is useful for helping you get all you want while you are there.Make a list of things to packMake packing an easier task by creating a packing list. The things you’ll need for the retreat will depend on the type of wellness retreat and its location. You’ll need things like flip flops to wear after a shower. If your wellness holiday is at a luxury spa you may want a comfortable robe and your comfy slippers. Be sure to check if there is a dress code for meals and such. Bringing along an extra large scarf is a great idea for traveling in general. A scarf is versatile and can be used to cover up on your flight, at the beach, in religious places, and can keep you warm while meditating. If your health retreat is medically based, you’ll need to be sure to bring your medical records and all your medications.Book Your Trip in AdvanceStart planning your trip as early as you can. Booking everything in advance gives you two benefits. For one, you’ll get the best prices, and secondly, you have time to prepare your mind and body. Getting it booked early guarantees you won’t miss out on flights that are within your budget. You will also have time to get your body ready. For instance, some meditation retreats prohibit stimulants. Take this time to detox from coffee or tea. Also, you’ll have time to take some yoga classes to prepare your body for sitting in the lotus position.Prepare for the UnexpectedEven though you are excited about your upcoming trip, it’s easy to suffer from pre-trip anxiety. Many people worry about all the what-ifs that could occur on the trip. You may worry about things like:·       What if something happens and I don’t get to go?·       What if I get sick while I am there?·       What will I do if I lose my passport?·       Will my family be able to reach me if there is an emergency?One way to ease your mind is to make backup copies of all your documents. Take one with you and leave one with a family or friend. Be sure to include travel insurance, flight information, passport, hotel or host information, etc. Depending on how long you will be gone, you may want to have the post office hold your mail for you.Creating a Post Health Retreat PlanFor some people, it can be difficult to return to a normal schedule after you’ve been on a wellness holiday. While away, you’ve spent time on yourself and your health. You may learn new self-care strategies, or new skincare regimens, established new meditation practices, and maybe changed for a healthier diet. One idea is to journal during the retreat, so you’ll be able to reflect on the experience once you  have returned back to your daily routines. Following these tips for planning your wellness holiday will help ensure a more pleasurable trip. They will also help you prepare for when you return home to make new adjustments to your lifestyle.

How Stress Management Retreat Can Rejuvenate Your Mind And Body

Stress is considered a negative response to circumstances and can have physical and psychological impacts on a person. It can quickly throw both the mind and body out of balance which may affect every aspect of life. The key to stress is learning how to manage it properly. Oftentimes stress causes you to lose focus, be anxious, restless, irritate, or unable to sleep. Symptoms are often masked using unhealthy means such as smoking, drinking, eating unhealthy foods, or just overeating. These impulsive behavioral responses don’t reduce stress. Instead, they reduce the ability of the body to cope. This can put you at a greater risk of developing serious health conditions. A stress management retreat can help you learn healthy and effective ways to manage stress. Negative Effect of Stress on the BodyEveryone can identify stress, but not everyone understands how to undo its ill effects. Stress quietly creeps into our lives through finances, work, family and friends. You can’t really ignore it. It usually causes you to create unhealthy ways of coping, or it simply gets the best of you. Stress is often responsible for things like:·       Increased Weight. When our body thinks we are in a potentially dangerous situation, it releases stress hormones like norepinephrine and cortisol. These hormones inhibit weight loss and can be why it’s so difficult to get rid of those last few pounds. Basically, stressing about what you eat or stressing overweight loss can be counterproductive.·       Anxiety. These same hormones alter your mod, productivity, relationships, and quality of life. Stress responses are the way the body protects from danger, but too much causes agitation, depression, and loneliness. ·       Headaches. Stress can cause high blood pressure which can be responsible for chronic headaches. Stress headaches can come on due to eye strain, a lack of sleep, or tension caused by anxiety. ·       Skin Problems. Stress alters the hormonal balance in the body, wears down your immunity, and can cause acne. When the hormonal balance is off due to stress, your skin produces too much oil and can contribute to cases of adult acne.·       Early Death. Stress is linked to heart disease which can cause premature death. But it can also weaken your immune system and make it harder to fight off infections. With all this in mind it’s important to note that stress is manageable, and these negative effects can be reversed. A stress management retreat offers you time to relax and get advice from professionals so you can control stress, improve your quality of life as well as your wellbeing and long-term health.Benefits of a Stress Management RetreatThe body can’t differentiate between good or bad stress so it’s important to learn to manage all stress. A stress management  retreat can help you regain your sense of overall well-being as well as benefit you physically, psychologically, and emotionally. A wellness getaway can provide practical ways for you to manage stress. Wellness retreats include a variety of programs and typically run from three days to a week. This gives you time to rejuvenate emotionally as well as replenish the body. A stress management retreat restores balance and can influence positive lifestyle changes. These may include:·       Changes in Diet.  It is common for people to turn to food to try and relieve stress. Eating impulsively or choosing unhealthy foods can wreak havoc in the body. Eating healthy foods can make a big difference in terms of managing stress. Some foods have properties that detoxify the body and others help boost the immune system. ·       Exercise Habits. Exercise is a common way to relieve stress. Stress management retreats often incorporate various exercise and fitness routines into the program. Exercising releases tension, toxins and stress. ·       Meditation. Another strategy to help reduce stress and encourage mental relaxation at a wellness retreat is meditation. Participants may learn more about mental relaxation and calmness while releasing tension. Meditation deepens your self-awareness and provides a positive way to respond to stress.·       Yoga Sessions. Yoga provides body rejuvenation and has numerous benefits. Poses, stretches, relaxation and breathing techniques help calm and refocus the mind. This can bring the body and mind back into  unison while also achieving a sense of inner peace. ·       Massage Therapy. When under stress, muscles tense up. A relaxing massage or deep tissue massage helps muscles relax and relieve tension. Massages can help reduce pain and improve circulation.Who Makes a Good Candidate for a Stress Management Retreat?If you have been under chronic stress for a while, you may benefit from a stress management or wellness retreat. Attending a health retreat can help prevent long lasting effects on your health. It can also provide long-term health benefits and help you learn how to manage stress in the future. It may be time for you to get your life back into balance if you:·       Are chronically overwhelmed at work·       Have financial stress·       Have family problems·       Tend to have negative emotions or thoughts·       Have difficulties keeping up with responsibilities·       Feel like you are stuck in a rut ·       Feel overwhelmed, de-energized, and physically battered
