Busy lives with growing children, work deadlines and other commitments can lead to lack of sleep, and more importantly, put our bodies into stress and our minds into overdrive.
A wellness day retreat is not simply a quick getaway, but a journey that makes substantial improvements to your physical and psychological health. Retreats allow you to be immersed in a serene environment and learn some new relaxation techniques and come back into balance.
Here are some key benefits Haven Yoga and Meditation has to offer when attending our wellness day retreats:
1. Taking Time Out
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, you will uncover an ability to let go of your stressful thoughts and gain the power to bounce back. Allowing you to focus on improving your health and happiness and achieve a renewed lifestyle perspective.
2. Learning New Things
Whether it’s learning new types of yoga (such as Kundalini) and meditation techniques, understanding your numbers through numerology, experiencing intuitive healing through oracle cards or LomiLomi massage; you’re sure to learn some new ways of connecting to your mind, body and soul.
3. Enhancing Your Overall Wellbeing
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.
4. Unplugging from the World
Detaching ourselves from the digital world can be a struggle, with so much of our lives happening online. 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 to ‘the now’ and relaxing are key components when finding peace of mind.
5. Meeting Like-minded Individuals
You will find many different people with the same goals as you at a wellness day retreat. Spending time with these people will help you listen to their perspectives on new topics and lay the foundation for an everlasting supportive community. There is no need to be afraid of going solo, people are waiting for you.
