Vacation is a time to remove your usual “hat” and try on a fresh new perspective. It begins the moment you surrender. The plane is in the air cruising at an altitude of 30,000 feet. Finally you can settle in your chair and let yourself drift…
Letting go is a fundamental aspect of any vacation as it creates a break from life’s usual burdens. Not only does this allow your mind to relax, but also your nervous system, which can provide many health benefits.
Every moment of every day your nervous system is working to balance your internal environment with your external environment. This means every situation causes a release of energy to alter blood flow, relay information, create new cells and so much more. Sleep, weight gain and other health issues are all tied into your nervous system as well.
Due to external obligations, duties and responsibilities, additional energy is drained from your system causing the body to adapt to a state of constant readiness which is also known as “fight or flight”. Dr. Lipton from Stanford University said “we are dying or healing every second of every day.”
Long term fight or flight creates continuous body imbalances, which can lead to chronic aches and pains, loss of sleep, digestion problems, anxiety, heart disease and stroke. So we aren’t lying when we say that rest in a beautiful location is just what the doctor ordered!
Here at Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, we can help you achieve true relaxation, which can provide tangible benefits for your body and mind. Take time on your vacation to learn what letting go really means. This will allow you to take a little piece of your vacation home with you and apply the benefits to your life.
