The Wellness Trend
There’s a trend in travel lately that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon and that is wellness travel! In the last five to ten years, hotels, destinations, and resorts have been rapidly answering the desires of the health-conscious traveler by incorporating access to healthy meals, active outdoor programming, meditation, yoga, and beyond – allowing travelers to return home feeling better than when they left. Wellness Travel is a broad term and incorporates many opportunities to be healthy while traveling. A good way to think about it is simply having the choices available to you when you travel so you can form new healthy habits or continue the ones you already have into your daily life while on vacation. Global Wellness Institute describes Wellness Travel as “travel associated with the pursuit of maintaining or enhancing one’s personal wellbeing.” Read more about the Global Wellness Institute here.
Wellness Travel Options
There’s a wide range of options to choose from when it comes to hotels, resorts, destinations, and their offerings. It becomes a bit overwhelming when trying to determine what wellness travel really is and if it’s right for you or not. The thing is, it’s really whatever you would like it to be – it’s totally up to you! You can participate in as little or as much of it as you so desire. You may be seeking healthier eating habits, daily exercise or yoga, meditation, jounaling, hiking or beyond. There isn’t a set rule when it comes to incorporating wellness.
