Women’s Wellness Journeys: Find your Inner Peace

Shanell Varner of Moonglade Travel

Women want some time to relax among other women once in awhile. We need to have down time away from the daily obligations of life. As women we often work tirelessly to make sure everyone else’s needs are met. This means sacrificing our own needs. Now is the time to be intentional about improving our wellness by strengthening our MIND, BODY & SPIRIT, on a Women’s’ Wellness Journey.

Wellness Journeys combine travel with yoga, cultural immersion and community service projects. All of these journeys incorporate culture, nature, community service and meeting the locals. These unique journeys and yoga retreats help you explore the world, give back to the community and ultimately reconnect with yourself. All while enjoy delicious, healthy food. Travel is transforming. I believe in immersing into different cultures for a rich experience, not just simply a trip.

The way woman travel is different from the way men do. Women like adventure travel, and to be engrossed in foreign cultures, experts say. We are attracted to community service projects, especially those abroad. Many women travel solo or exclusively with other woman. More than 11 percent of adult leisure travelers are woman on their own, the US Travel Association says. AAA reports that 1 in 4 have joined other women on “girlfriend getaways,” bachelorette trips, or mother-daughter getaways.

The book and movie “Eat, Pray, Love,” has encouraged women to travel to rediscover themselves. This film proves that there really is more than one way to let yourself go and see the world. Liz Gilbert, played by actress Julia Roberts is a modern woman on a quest to marvel at and travel the world while rediscovering and reconnecting with her true inner self. This is exactly what women not only want but need.

March is Women’s History Month. What better month to take charge of your wellness and plan a rejuvenating experience sure to inspire you to leave your mark in the world.
