Wellness Vacation at Blair House Inn

February 12th, 2014 by Michael Schneider

The pursuit of a wellness vacation is something we take seriously here at Blair House Inn. Recently, this article came across my desk from traveltowellness.com. I think it expresses the same ideas we hope for our guests. Life in the Texas hill country is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Something we want to share with as many guests as possible. Whether it be a romantic getaway, spa day with the girls, or preparing healthy meals at our cooking schools. Your time here can be as exciting or relaxing as you wish. Find the goal and direction you want to travel and let us help you get there. Come to the Texas hill country for your wellness vacation at Blair House Inn.
 
Wellness Vacation

What to ask yourself before booking a wellness vacation.

 
1. What is the intent or goal of my wellness vacation?
Perhaps it’s to lose weight? Learn how to make healthier food choices? Enjoy a bit of “Me Time” to reconnect with Self? Learn how to manage stress? Give it some thought. What do you really need to maintain, promote or kick-start a healthy lifestyle?

2. How much do I want to spend on this time away?
The last thing you want to do is stress over money. Remember you don’t necessarily need to travel far from home for a wellness vacation. Depending on where you live and your goal, you may find a suitable wellness vacation destination in your own town or within an easy drive.

3. Who might be my best wellness vacation companion?
Think about someone you simply love to enjoy time with. Significant other? Sister? Girl friends? Perhaps you’d love to meet new like-minded people. Try to avoid travelling with people who may be a trigger for stress. Instead, look for travel companions who calm you and make you feel good about yourself.

4. What kind of food do I want?
Since food is the foundation of a wellness lifestyle, and what we eat is something that we have absolute control over – think about what type of food you want on your wellness vacation. Healthy gourmet? Buffet with lots of healthy food options? Calorie controlled? Fresh, local, seasonal? You decide.

5. How do I want to spend my daytime hours?
Getting physical in the great outdoors? Participating in yoga classes and educational sessions? Hanging out at the spa? Enjoying local foodie tours and cultural activities? All of the above? Or, something else? Your answers will help you trim the list of possible destinations.
