1) Meditate

Many weekend wellness retreats offer guests a place to meditate and ease their mind from draining thoughts and their body of unwanted stress. You can easily incorporate a few minutes of mediation by sitting in complete silence in a comfy position with your eyes closed.

Focus on your breathing and clear your mind. Make it a point not to think of anything other than your breathing.

2) Sip on herbal and green tea

Tea is the beverage of choice for many retreat centers, so head to your local store and pick up some tea. Brew a cup in the morning as soon as you get out of bed to start the day off right. A cup of green tea can improve your physical performance and brain function, as well as aids in weight loss and fighting off infections.

3) Go for walks

Take a 30-minute walk in the morning and then take another one in the evening when the sun sets. Go around your neighbourhood and just take in the beauty of it all, while letting the worries of the world slip away with every step you take.

4) Read

Reading can really relax your body and take your mind off things. Spend an hour reading that book you’ve been dying to start or choose a contemplative book that will help you get closer to your dreams in life.

5) Take a long bath

Soak in a hot bubble bath to relax just before bedtime. Put on some soft music and dim the lights – use candles to really set the mood. Bring your book in with you or just sip on a glass of wine with your eyes closed and just let everything else fade away.

6) Pamper yourself

Give yourself a manicure and pedicure at home and use your favourite nail polish colour that makes you feel strong and sexy.

There are many other things you can include to create your own wellness retreat at home, but as long as you get some peace of mind and relax, that’s all that matters!

  • Great suggestions although would add massage and connection for a retreat. I would call this more self care Part of what I most enjoy about retreats is connecting with new people – but I know that’s not an option at the moment.

  • I really believe in this and always try to do things like this morning had a online yoga class and a relaxing bath and coffee and bath afterwards

  • Agree with all apart from the wine (I prefer tea!) and pampering myself is more like scrubbing the hard skin off the feet after a soak than anything else! And I’d add massage – even a cheap device for backs or hamstrings so you can sit back and enjoy the muscles being eased. And maybe heat, a hot water bottle or infrared lamp.

  • We certainly have more time on our hands ATM, so I think a day spent with a little pampering would be good for the soul! Thanks for the ideas!

  • Yes! Self care is so important and it’s true you don’t have to spend tones of money. A soak in the bath with a good book and a nice bush walk.
