There are times when a retreat is necessary for substantial relaxation. Going on a retreat need not be an expensive ordeal: I advocate for the self-made retreat where you spend a weekend or week in nature, and devoting that time to practices that will uplift you.
However, sometimes going on a retreat that is catered to life empowerment and uplifting our spirit helps give us the kick we need to move into our power to live a better life. It is important to recognize when all you need is some time alone, or when you need a more radical change from your environment to help you return to a more empowered and connected state of being. Often a change in your environment gives perspective, relaxation, and rejuvenation. It does not need to be a permanent change, but taking a few days out of your regular routine to immerse yourself in a relaxation holiday is often the necessary treatment to uplift and inspire your process to positive change. It is also important to get honest with yourself and recognize: what is it that you really need right now? Whether you go the road of the self-made retreat, or give yourself the gift of going to an all-inclusive retreat, it is integral to give yourself time to take care of your whole body, mind, and spirit.
