Invest in Yourself

What do you think of when you hear the word “retreat?” For many what comes to mind is “giving up” or “surrendering to the enemy.” But on a deeper spiritual level, retreat means something much more. To retreat is to withdraw from life’s daily demands in order to reflect on our true nature and the meaning of our existence.

Today, opportunities for quiet contemplation and reflection can be rare, with a variety of obligations and distractions pulling our attention away from being present. The time to pause and take a step back from our responsibilities can become scarce, unless we take the initiative to develop a disciplined self-care practice.

Over the last decade, a host of retreat centers and programs have popped up around the globe. Virtually anything, from yoga, to meditation, to dietary healing, may be the focal point of a retreat program. Attending a speci cally designed program, such as a yoga and health retreat, can be a truly transformative, healing experience. Not only are you putting yourself rst when you invest in attending a retreat, but you’re giving your body, mind and spirit a chance to reset and re-equilibrate.
Here are 7 reasons why you deserve to take a retreat:

1. Relax & Rejuvenate.

Removed from everyday responsibilities, you are provided a chance to catch up on rest, de-stress and redirect your energy within. Recent studies show that the majority of disease is stress-related. Proper rest and relaxation counteracts the e ects of stress by strengthening your immune system and giving your body the support it needs to release negative emotions and experiences.

2. Gain a New Perspective.

When you visit somewhere new, an opportunity arises to see the world in a new light. By taking yourself out of your comfort zone, you’re able to experience the unknown with a sense of openness and vulnerability that can greatly accelerate your ability to evolve and learn. As you open, you become more aware of the in nite number of possibilities that exist for your individual path and life purpose.
