Retreat literally means to withdraw or step back. We can retreat any time, really. Whether for a few hours, a day, or a week, taking time to slow down helps you break the cycle of habitual living and creates an environment for to regain perspective on your life - to revive your energy, and reconnect to that which is most important to you. Quite simply, we see, hear and feel more clearly after a retreat.
Retreat at work: enjoy a slow walk around the block. Notice your breath, the air moving in and out of your lungs as you enjoy the movement of your body. As you walk mindfully also grow more aware of the sights, sounds and smells around you.
Take a whole day at home: Turn off your cell phone, computer and television. Spend time doing yoga, soak in a warm bath, journal, play music, create art, meditate, write a letter or cook. Eat a warm nourishing meal by candlelight. Dedicate the day to a meditation or yoga course online.

If your budget allows, get a way for a night and stay in an inspiring natural environment like the beach, country, or mountains (but I’ve even retreated to the hotel in the neighboring town before!) And if you have the time to enjoy a longer get a way retreat – come join me as I’d love to share the joy with you!
