Island retreats are probably one of the best gifts you can give yourself. All too often, the hustle and bustle of life takes its toll and though we may not often think about it, our body does call for times to just sit back, relax, and find that inner peace.
What better way to do this than with island retreats?
Being on an island, in your own little paradise is a rejuvenating experience in itself.
So what steps do you need to take to prepare yourself for these island retreats
I. Prepare Yourself Before You Make reservations for your island retreat
- Know what your goals are
What do you want to get from this retreat? Is it to improve your relationships with other people? To acquire the rejuvenation to lead a healthy lifestyle? To be spiritually renewed?
- Be ready to change, to give up things
In any self-improvement program, being ready to accept yourself for who you are is always the first step towards self improvement.
II. Find A Program
- Which kind of retreat best suits your interest?
There are many programs available online. Don’t book the first one you see. Pick at least 5 and read through each program’s specific details. Is it what you want? If you have any questions about any of the activities, never hesitate to send the progam director an email.
- How far are you willing to travel for your island retreat?
Island retreats are always rejuvenating, but how far are you willing to travel? Some really good programs may be so far away you need a holiday when you get back and others may be way beyond your budget. Kind of defeats the purpose doesn’t it?
III. Make Advance Reservations
- Many retreats get booked months before, so make sure you make an advance reservation. You might also get significant discounts if you pay in advance, so try to ask for such when making inquiries
