The alarm goes off, and so another day begins. Traffic, meetings, deadlines, emails, phone calls, family, friends, social media, walk the dog or feed the cat, do the laundry, what’s for dinner, crash into bed before that alarm rings far too soon and you do it all over again the next day. And the next.
No doubt, this modern day grind sounds all too familiar, so it’s hardly surprising that thousands of Aussies are investing their precious annual leave towards something far more meaningful and enriching than just another beach holiday.
With our lives busier, more fast paced and tech-overdosed than ever, we’re opting to swap the poolside pina coladas for post-yoga green juices, and seeking out a deeply holistic experience to relax, rebalance and rejuvenate our body, mind, and soul.
