“What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body”

– Caroline Myss

We all know that traveling has indisputable and numerous health benefits. Mental health is equally as important as physical health so it’s important that we commit to holistic ways to nourish our bodies and minds before, during and after traveling.

Wellness travel is in great demand these days. Traveling for health and wellness is not an excuse rather it’s self-love. Enhancing personal well-being is a good lifestyle choice and traveling for the same is a great decision. So, go ahead and take a break!

Wellness travel is a good way to take up some healthy habits and opt for a long term wellness plan and re-prioritize one’s life’s choices. Spa and yoga holidays are the most popular wellness getaways (Namaste)but, as you see below, there are so many other options to feed your mind, body and soul.
