Wellness Retreats

Wellness is often an inherent desire of a vacation or getaway, but sometimes it helps to bring it to the forefront of travel planning and really think about what kind of nourishing activities you need.
 
Perhaps it's time in a wide-open desert or a national forest teeming with life. Or perhaps it's a spa or yoga time-out. Maybe it's even pushing yourself to get the adrenaline pumping with the help of a guided experience on a river, mountain bike or climbing rope. It's definitely finding yourself under a night sky where you can see the Milky Way. Whatever you choose, make sure to pair it with a fine meal and drink at the end of the day. 
 
Utah is a great place for wellness and self-care in its many forms. Take care of yourself, and make your vacation what you want it to be.

Connecting With Nature

From Northern Utah’s high alpine forests to the sandstone deserts further south, these open spaces hold an immense power. They are destinations for those seeking to rediscover themselves, to inspire new perspectives, and to find strength among ancient landscapes. As you prepare for your next trip to Utah, consider these ways to glean more understanding and develop a stronger connection with nature:

  1. Disconnect - In an ever-connected, perpetual world it can take a deliberate effort to be truly present in nature. Plan time to disconnect from distractions. You may be surprised at the details you notice.
  2. Mindfulness - Strive to be mentally present in your surroundings and embrace your emotions. Allow yourself to truly appreciate your presence, whether in a moment of meditation or during a complete retreat. Time spent in nature often has a positive effect on mental health, so be mindful of each step. (Read: Elevate Your Hiking with Mindfulness)
  3. Discovery - Wellness isn’t only found in relaxation and rejuvenation. Each journey is an opportunity to make a lifelong memory, and Utah is a wealth of opportunity. Stop by a local favorite restaurant on your road trip, book an adrenaline pumping tour with a guide, or find solace at a hidden gem you’ve never visited.
  4. Consideration - Travel often promises enriching experiences, the kind that open our minds to new ways of thinking. Take time to appreciate the elements that created Utah’s ancient landscapes, and seek opportunities to learn with every step. Nature has the power to inform new perspectives, encourage healing conversations, and allows us to find new strength.
  5. Responsibility - There’s a sense of excitement that comes with planning a trip; finding the best local restaurants, embracing a region’s history, and knowing which crowded destinations you might avoid. As you venture into Utah’s natural spaces, consider the impact you will make there. We call that Forever Mighty — traveling thoughtfully and experiencing nature most fully.
