There’s nothing quite like kicking off the New Year on the right foot, setting resolutions and working towards goals that may have been put off at the end of 2018. You’ve stuffed your face with delicious treats, attended maybe one too many holiday parties and survived the chaos of Christmas shopping, so there’s really no better time to focus on yourself and take some well deserved time off.
But we’re not talking about a vacation where you lie under the shade of an umbrella, drink in hand — you’ve likely had too many of those over the holidays. Instead, we’ve researched some of the best wellness retreats 2019 has to offer that have a focus on fitness and self-care, so you can feel confident your New Year’s resolutions will stick. From exotic yoga and meditation in Tanzania to bikini boot camps on the beaches of Mexico to nutrition focused snowsports getaways in the French Alps, we’ve got you covered for your next road trip.
We know how important it is to be mindful of those time off requests at work, so in addition to rounding up some of the most unique wellness retreats of the New Year, we’ve also made sure they align with federal holidays and weekends, so you can maximize your time off without stressing too much time away from work.
