Reason #1: We are tired of putting everyone else first.
Sick of spending time trying to make other people happy? And at the expense of yourself?
If you’re a chronic people pleaser (like I used to be), I know how easy it can be to feel stuck saying “yes” to others—even when we don’t really feel like it. It’s exhausting, right?
A retreat can provide us with time-out from the demands of life so we can focus on ourselves, as well as what we need for a change.
Retreats offer dedicated “me time,” which can help us restore balance in our lives and happiness in our hearts.
Reason #2: We are experiencing a health challenge.
Have you forgotten what it’s like to feel truly happy and healthy?
Health challenges can really suck. I should know. Just a few days before my 20th birthday, my body broke down. I found myself bedridden and having to be spoon-fed by my mother. This was the wake-up call I needed to prioritize my health.
The good thing was that being sick spurred me into action. It motivated me in a big way. And it ended up being a blessing. It helped me to make the necessary changes to get healthy and start living fully.
I know that this possibility exists for you too!
Retreats are taught by experts on health-related topics like yoga, meditation, tai chi, and fitness, and other practitioners and therapists will be there as well. They will share tools and techniques to help cope with life challenges and difficulties, including stress.
Armed with this knowledge, we can change how we deal with not only our physical health challenges, but with difficult people and stressful situations in our lives when we return back home.
