The top ten most popular resolutions that were made this year centred around improving wellness – from losing weight, eating more healthily, taking on ‘Veganuary’, to being more active and drinking less alcohol. Whilst these small changes to incorporate wellness into everyday life are becoming commonplace, an increasing number of people are dedicating their holidays to this cause.
A holiday is an opportunity to relax, recuperate and recharge your batteries for your next venture, so it makes sense to remove the usual holiday indulgences and instead spend your holiday time improving your overall health and wellbeing. The number of trips being made globally for wellness have steadily increased over the past couple of years. From yoga retreats to spas and specialist detox and rejuvenation programmes, we have put together a selection of destinations to inspire your wellness goals this year.
