Personal wellness is at an all-time high. People have turned to self-care routines through fitness regimes, detox methods, and stress relief techniques to better their mental and physical health.
According to a 2019 report by the Global Wellness Institute, nearly 18% of Americans participate in mindful movement, or a combination of yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises, to foster emotional well-being.
Wellness resorts that focus on health and rejuvenation are also on the rise. There are many around the world specifically designed to help you rediscover yourself mentally and physically, clear your head, and recenter yourself. Check out a few below.
