Self-care tourism is the world’s fastest-growing travel sector according to the Global Wellness Institute, and I don’t know about you but even the words ‘wellness escape’ alone sound relaxing!

Since becoming a mum spa weekends have taken on a whole new meaning, and I don’t think you can put a price on the benefits of a meaningful break from the humdrum of day-to-day life.

So, if you’re wondering how best to spend your holidays in 2020 the experts at Move With Us retreats have come up with 5 great reasons to pick a wellness escape over a traditional holiday.

5 great reasons to go on a wellness escape in 2020

1. You can disconnect

As the word ‘retreat’ suggests, you can withdraw from the stresses and distractions of everyday life. Give yourself the space to shift your focus to the smaller things and improve your physical and mental health.

2. There’s support

Wellness retreats often boast professional teams who can support and guide you in your efforts to reach your wellness goals. Whether you want to de-stress or lose some extra weight, they’ve got you covered.

3. You can meet other people

Wellness retreats offer a great opportunity to meet and share your experiences with like-minded people. This also makes it easier to continue your health journey after the retreat, because doing activities with a friend has been proven to encourage you to stick to your goals.

4. There’s no planning needed

One way in which retreats help to facilitate rest and wellness is by taking all the stress out of regular holidaymaking. There’s no need to worry about things like commutes, reservations or scheduling – everything is taken care of.

At a retreat you can not only detox yourself from non-nutritious foods in order to kick start your health journey, but you’ll also have the opportunity to detox yourself from screens and the constant pressures of our smartphones.
