According to US Travel, more than half of Americans do not use their vacation days each year. So why are we not taking vacations? Work stress, pressure from our jobs, fear of missing career opportunities, and inability to unplug from technology. Unfortunately, we forget the value of taking a healthy vacation. Time away allows us to take care of ourselves and recharge. It is great for our physical, mental and spiritual health.
That is why I chose to go to SHI Macrobiotic’s Healthy Vacation Adventure in Costa Rica. Before the trip, I was struggling with headaches, migraines, eye strain, and fatigue. It became clear that all the long hours at work and on the computer had caught up to me. And I needed a fun, relaxing retreat. And that is exactly what I got joining SHI’s Healthy Vacation Adventure in Costa Rica. It was AMAZING! Here are the exciting activities, great food, and classes that I experienced on this healthy vacation.
