Going on a Wellness Trip This Year? Here's What to Pack
If our Instagram feeds are any indication, more people are traveling lately than they have in years. Thanks to the pandemic, everyone is eager to get a vacation on the calendar after being stuck at home for such a long time. Beyond the apparent increase in traveling, the pandemic has also changed the way people are traveling. Wellness trips are a major travel trend right now, and we're betting they will only become more popular in the next year.
Self-care has undeniably been at the forefront of everyone's minds for a few years now, as people have explored what makes them feel good amid challenging times. Whether your preferred method of self-care is journaling, jogging, or anything in between, chances are you've been working on your wellness in some way, big or small.
Wellness retreats and trips combine these self-care habits with travel. They can be a valuable opportunity to unwind and take a break from the stress of everyday life — and that means you should definitely not spend any time fretting over what to pack. If you have a wellness trip coming up or are thinking of planning one, use the items on this list as a jumping-off point.
