Ever feel like you need a vacation from your vacation? That’s because often when we choose to take a vacation, we spend a majority of it stressing over what we’re doing next, partying too much, overeating, or forgetting to actually relax.
With more people prioritizing their health than ever before, traveling is also starting to become a health-focused experience centered on elevating wellness. Whether it’s a short train ride or across the country, there are endless ways to experience new places while keeping your health intact. From health retreats to wellness hotels, there are destinations around the world that highlight self-care to help you slow down, chill out, and feel good. With options like on-site yoga, morning meditation, organic food menus, and a variety of spa treatments, there’s no reason to fall off your health routine while away from home. So rather than coming back from a vacation exhausted and burnt out, you’ll feel refreshed, energized, and ready to take on life.
Here are some of our favorite getaway spots that will inspire you to boost your mind, body, and soul:
