Disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of the city and the routine of everyday life has been an increasing concern. Retreat-style trips, where the goal is to calm the mind, body and soul, are becoming ever more popular among fans who are looking for a quiet place to de-stress and recharge.
More isolated destinations, connections with nature and the search for self-knowledge and spirituality are key points for the public that seeks this type of travel, in addition to accommodations that also include such relaxing activities as spa treatments, massages and meditation.
Disconnecting from technology is extremely important for you to really connect with yourself. Trade your smart phone for a pen and paper. An atmosphere of serenity, peace and silence is great for reflecting on your life, what has brought you happiness, what you would like to do and your dreams. Writing everything down to transform them into goals is a great strategy to make them a reality.
