Well Beyond a Vacation
Travel without intention is just a trip. Whether your goal is to eat clean, commune with nature, or simply reconnect with yourself, we’ve taken all the guesswork out of traveling with intention. Led by wellness experts, these carefully curated itineraries are designed to help you transform wellbeing into actually being well.
Expert Tip: Begin with the end in mind. How do you want to feel when you return from your travel? If the goal is healing or recuperation, focus on that and don’t worry if you’ve not seen every sight there is to see. If your goal is to have fun, don’t feel guilty about not being productive, because you are owning the goal of fun, which is valid in and of itself.
- Joe Robinson, Work-Life Balance and Stress Management Leader
