5 Reasons to take yourself on retreat

freedom health love presence Aug 30, 2018

Once in a while we all need to take ourselves away from our daily life. Holiday’s are great, but they very rarely support our health in the way we may want to. The food isn’t right, and you eat too much of it. You easily slip into drinking more alcohol and eating more ice cream than you know is good for you. You are on holiday after all and you want to make the most of it. Perhaps you will also lie a bit too long in the sun, causing you sun burn and pre-mature ageing of the skin. There is also so much to see and do when going to new places that the days are often filled with tiring activities, leaving you excited but exhausted at the end of the day. When you get home, you immediately slip back into your old habits and life patterns… until the next holiday.

It’s fun and they do say that a change is as good as a break, but once in a while you’ll need something else. A complete removal from what you normally do.

So here are 5 reasons why you should take yourself on a retreat:

1. Food
Finally no more worrying about what to eat. All your meal needs are taken care of. You don’t have to make it, you don’t have to decide when or where to have it and you don’t have to negotiate with waiters over gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, etc. Delicious, healthy food just appears as if by magic. And you can be safe in the knowledge that everything is created with love and for your wellbeing.

2. Time
Daily life makes huge demands. Sometimes it's simply necessary to get away from all those responsibilities of work and family. On reterat you will have the time to do all the self-care that you normally think you cannot fit into your day. Yoga, swimming, meditation, sleeping, doing nothing… and most importantly, just Being and falling in love with Being.

3. Focus
Health requires healing on a spiritual, emotional and physical level. A retreat will give you the focus and support designed to help you connect with your Self and identify how you want to live your life from now on. You will meet like-minded people who are there for similar reason as you. Everybody will support everybody else, it will be like being part of a loving, non-judgemental family for a while. A place to feel safe and held, with a guide who gives you space to discover your own inner wisdom.

4. Inspiration
Everybody needs inspiration. A retreat will inspire you with new ideas and ways to live your life. You will have a first hand experience of how good life can feel, learn what's most important to you, and explore what's holding you back. It gives you the tools to implement the changes you desire in a lasting and sustainable way when you get home . 

5. Nature
Nature is like free health care. It helps us to heal and rejuvenate. Retreats take you into nature and let you absorb earth’s energy in a way you rarely do at home. Walking on the beach, listening to birds, enjoying clean, fresh air, swimming in clean, pristine water. Nature will be there to help you calm your mind, release stresses and create clarity of mind. You will feel like you’ve come home… to your Self.
