Are you looking for a wellness escape?

Sometimes life gets busy and stressful, and we need a wellness escape.

A wellness escape is an opportunity to de-stress and focus on your well-being. 

It can take the shape of one or some of the following: 

Emotional Intelligence in Leadership
  • Recharge your body
  • Reset your mindset
  • Centre yourself
  • Reconnect breath and mind
  • Rescue your thoughts
  • Appreciate yourself
  • Honouring your life
  • Release negative emotions.
  • Redefine happiness
  • Find fulfillment
  • Restore and anchor in your truth
  • Energize your body
  • Release stress
  • Tap into your subconscious power
  • Finding your happy place

Over the past seven months, my life became very stressful when my husband had a freak accident with exacerbated health challenges that took a lot of mental and emotional energy. One of the things that kept me going was my well-being reset visualization sessions. 

For decades, I have been teaching this to clients and knew the power of it to rejuvenate, so I started making it a daily ritual.

I will be offering the exhibition sessions next Tuesday at 12:00 PM CST, as part of my Ultimate Well-being Curriculum package and you are invited to join me. 

Massages are another way to release stress from your tissues and muscles. This month for Mother’s Day, my darling son again gifted me a spa gift certificate. I am amazingly blessed to have a thoughtful and considerate son.

Here are some tips to help you cultivate well-being in your life. 

A wellness escape can be a fantastic opportunity to recharge, rejuvenate, and focus on your overall well-being. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your wellness escape:

  1. Set Intentions: Before you go, take some time to reflect on what you hope to gain from the experience. Whether it's stress relief, better physical health, mental clarity, or simply relaxation, having clear intentions can guide your activities and choices during your escape.
  2. Disconnect: Consider disconnecting from technology as much as possible during your wellness escape. This means limiting phone and internet use to truly immerse yourself in the experience and avoid distractions.
  3. Engage in Activities: Most wellness escapes offer a variety of activities designed to promote well-being, such as yoga, meditation, hiking, spa treatments, and healthy cooking classes. Participate in as many activities as you can, trying new things and embracing the experience fully.
  4. Practice Mindfulness: Pay attention to the present moment and fully engage in each activity you participate in. Mindfulness can help you appreciate the experience more deeply and reduce stress and anxiety.
  5. Nourish Your Body: Take advantage of healthy eating options available during your wellness escape. Choose nutritious meals and snacks that fuel your body and support your well-being.
  6. Connect with Nature: Spending time outdoors has numerous benefits for physical and mental health. If your wellness escape includes outdoor activities like hiking or nature walks, take advantage of them to connect with nature and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.
  7. Relax and Rest: Don't forget to prioritize relaxation and rest during your wellness escape. Schedule downtime for activities like reading, journaling, or simply enjoying the peaceful environment.
  8. Reflect and Reevaluate: Use this time away to reflect on your life, goals, and priorities. Consider what changes you can make to maintain a healthier and more balanced lifestyle once you return home.
  9. Stay Open-Minded: Approach your wellness escape with an open mind and be willing to try new things. You may discover activities or practices that resonate with you and that you can incorporate into your daily routine for long-term benefits.
  10. Carry the Experience Forward: As you return, carry the lessons and habits you've developed during your wellness escape with you. Incorporate mindfulness, healthy eating, regular exercise, and self-care practices into your daily life to continue reaping the benefits of your experience.

By following these tips, you can make the most of your wellness escape and return to work or home feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and inspired to live a healthier and more balanced life.
