New Year, new me? How many times have you heard this in January?
The healthy style of life is here to stay and habits like a balanced diet, doing sports frequently, and looking after our mental health are now our day-to-day priorities. They have an impact on the New Year's resolutions and around 50% of them are now health and fitness related.
This year we might have to get on with them in our neighbourhoods or living rooms, but we are sure by 2022 things will be looking very different.
Having next year in mind, we are going to give you 5 ideas for booking a wellness holiday next January. Hopefully, these will help and motivate you with your resolutions for the current year too.
Well-being holidays in Japan
Can you imagine starting your wellness journey for next year in an awesome place like Japan?
For many years, they have had the secret of having the oldest population in the world. The Japanese style of life is very attractive for those looking to improve their well-being.
In a country where wellness holidays are increasing each year, we can see it’s the perfect place to go and smash your New Year's resolutions.
You can do some activities like Shirin-Yoku, forest bathing if you struggle with pronunciation, and find out how the forest can improve your mental and physical health. You can treat yourself to a relaxing day in one of their many Onsens and don't skip the Japanese style where less is more.
Helping with your healthy diet resolution in Switzerland
The UK population doesn’t have the best food habits on the planet and this must be one of the reasons why around 41% of the population choose to change their diet as one of their New Year’s resolutions.
Here at Porter, we propose that in 2022, you start sticking to this new habit in Switzerland.
Switzerland has one of the most balanced diets around the world. They love real food, and they’ve cut all sugar as much as possible from the daily diet. Eating is a social activity, and it’s very important in their culture.
While trying to look after your diet, have a look at one of their retreat holidays in the mountains. Most of the options include detox programmes which can be perfect after Christmas excesses.
Book your fitness holidays in Australia
The Australian fitness industry is quickly growing each year. Therefore, the country is becoming a worldwide leader for the health holiday destination chasers.
Another of the advantages of the country is its size. Australia is one of the biggest countries in the world. Hence, you’ll have a wide range of activities you could choose from. Whether you prefer chill retreats or extreme boot camps, there will be an option for your needs.
Between all the possibilities you can find, we extremely recommend the qualia experience. An innovative way to discover the great reef while you get a deep fitness trip. From full days of snorkelling to personal training and yoga sessions, those healthy holidays will get you right where you want to be in your fitness journey.
India, the cradle of the wellness holiday destination
The wellness holiday industry has been increasing over the last few years around the world and India has long ranked as one of the top places to have this style of holiday.
Visiting India is such an experience, and Yoga is one of the main reasons (among many others) why people decide to visit the country. The popular sport was born in India. This is why the country has become a world leader on Yoga retreats. Each yoga practitioner dreams of being trained by one of the best yoga gurus in the country.
Yoga retreats in India are very varied. From more stark places where you look at yourself to luxury resorts, you can find the style you are looking for during your yoga holiday in India.
Staying local with a fitness holiday in the UK
For the last recommendation, we can't forget our own country.
The United Kingdom might not be a well-known name for wellness destinations like the other countries mentioned in the article, but there are lots of choices if you decide to stay local.
One of the most popular New Year resolutions chosen by many of us is to spend as much time as possible outdoors and disconnect from the virtual world. With this in mind, the UK has many areas to get lost and forget about the telephone or Wi-Fi signal. The country has so many places where you can boost your fitness, outdoors.
You can book wellbeing breaks, spa days or digital detox retreat without taking a plane.
What do you think about these ideas? We are looking forward to hearing from you and see what you are up to with your New Year's resolutions. If you get to book any of them, don’t forget to share them with us in our social media channels.
