Take a deep breath in. Now, take a deep breath out. Close your eyes, and allow your body to be still,” the yoga instructor said to our class on a breezy Friday morning beachside at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Being ‘still’ has always been a challenge for me, but there was something calming about the sound of the ocean, the swaying palm trees above me and the ocean air gently blowing across my skin. I kept thinking to myself in that very moment, “I really needed this.”
Let’s be honest, life is busy. We get so caught up in our hectic schedules that often times we push our health and wellness to the back burner. We say to ourselves, “I’ll work out tomorrow. I don’t have time tonight.” Or perhaps you’re “too tired,” or have “other plans.” Health and wellness isn’t just about our physical bodies though, it’s about our mental wellness too. Sometimes, the one thing you need is a “me” weekend completely dedicated to your health and wellness and The Palm Beaches is just the place to plan your next wellness getaway!
