Are your day-to-day responsibilities taking a toll on your overall well-being? The drudges of emails, texts, social media, and headlines are just some of the factors that negatively affect mental and, in extreme cases, even physical health.
Many people who know this all too well are turning to detox retreats to regain lost vitality. Do they really work?
The best answers should come from experts in the wellness industry. For people still wondering what others actually accomplish at these retreats, here are some of the most popular retreats today.
While carbs and fat have had their turn as the healthy person’s “enemy” over the years, sugar is at the centre stage today. Most detox retreats offer a sugar detox treatment, which involves a sugar-free diet plan.
Accordingly, clients should leave the retreat purged of sugar, which causes them to have clearer skin, more efficient digestive system while still bursting with energy.
For diverse reasons, including the realisation that old age has set in and lifestyle changes must occur, some people slip into depression. Others might be suffering from grief as a result of a loved one passing away or the loss of a job or a treasured relationship. These retreats are a getaway to allow nature to heal them.
Research has shown that experiences are the source of people’s happiness, not things. After undergoing grief retreats, happiness retreats are a great next step to better mental health. They are packaged and targeted at making people happy by providing nostalgic and lasting experiences.
People are turning more to retreats to help them through various phases of life. There is no doubt of the efficacy of these programmes to improve morale and overall health. And as lifestyles and society evolve, we can expect more packages to be created to help people.
