The world, to many, is seen to be congested, rapid and taxing on the body leading people to think of it as a societal norm. This assumption that we are destined for a life if hard times is usually a leading reason behind stressful lifestyles. From deadlines to lack of sleep, our bodies and our minds need to take breaks every now and then to survive.
Going on a retreat is found to be increasingly beneficial for an individual’s health and wellbeing. Retreats allows yourself to be immersed in a serene environment and the use of relaxation techniques to have a calmer body and mind. Here are some key benefits Haven Yoga has to offer when going on one of our retreats.
Taking time out
Taking time for yourself is not as selfish as it may seem. Despite what we think, humans are a lot like a battery, we can run for hours and work incredibly efficiently, but we still need to take the time out and recharge. By taking time out of your daily routine through partaking in a retreat, you will uncover an ability to let go of your stressful thoughts and gain the power to bounce back and recharge your lifestyle. Allowing you to focus on improving your health and happiness and achieve a renewed lifestyle perspective.
Benefit on the brain, body and overall well being
A retreat can have an exponential impact on the body and brain, giving benefits that otherwise wouldn’t be reached by conventional approaches. Retreats have been found to improve the overall wellbeing of an individual, as your brain and body will feel more relaxed and refreshed through undertaking deep breathing exercises, which lowers your heart rate and blood pressure. Also, participation in mindfulness and meditation improves your wellbeing by helping you create new habits to become more mindful of your thoughts and actions.
Detaching ourselves from the digital world can be a struggle, with so much of our lives happening online, from work to social media, our screens are almost like an extra limb. This lack of disconnection can add levels of extra stress to our lifestyle and prevent us from providing ourselves with the self-care we deserve. Finding the time to unplug is vital to our mental state, attuning with ‘the now’ and relaxing are a key component when finding peace of mind. Attending a retreat is the perfect opportunity to disconnect from technology and connect with the present moment, you will discover that being in a peaceful environment and practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness activities will allow you to escape your worries and improve your holistic wellbeing.
