You’ve finally arrived and the clean air moves across your face and you smile as you see a beautiful resort’s doors open for you like magic…but then you wake up with drool on your keyboard from the sound of your boss’ voice yelling at you about the deadline. It was just a dream…

The year 2019 has finally settled in and the excitement of the new year has worn off. You have long forgotten the feeling of peace you got from the previous holiday vacation. You are getting tired of spending hours, days, weeks, and months cooped up in cars, desks, and buildings with artificial light and recycled air. You miss the fresh air, sunlight, and freedom of no responsibilities. Your keyboard is starting to wear out and you long for the moments that the background of sunsets and crystal clear water show up on your computer screen. As you dream, you start to ponder the possibilities of taking a vacation before the holidays to a place you’ve never been, and you wonder if people would think you are selfish for wanting to take care of your body and mind.

This why people who know the value of their health and productivity go on wellness retreats. Stress negatively affects our wellbeing and performance. According to the American Institute of Stress states “77% percent of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress.” It’s becoming more and more popular to find ways to disconnect from reality (and technology) to a place that will not only bring you peace but the health and vitality that you will need to accomplish your future goals with more energy and efficiency. Below we have listed the Top 5 Wellness Vacations You Need To Take In 2019.
