In case you didn’t feel it, fall is upon us. The weather around us is changing providing us with beautiful new scenery. What better time to get out an enjoy it than retreat. It will not only rejuvenate your mind and body, but allow you to submerse yourself in the beauty that comes with the fall season. So, why take a retreat in the fall? Well, because the kids are back in school and you’ve already had summer family time. This can be your “me time”.
So what type of fall retreats are out there you ask? Well, there are enough to satisfy every moms wants and needs.
If you’re religious or spiritual, you might enjoy a church camp or spiritual retreat. The next time you’re at your house of worship inquire if there are any planned, and if there isn’t work with them to organize one. Many spiritual moms find this is a great way to re-center themselves spiritually so they can be good leaders to their children.
These focus on enriching your life in a variety of ways. Some specialize in music and art, or a specific location in the world, where others focus on the parts of your life you want to change and/or enrich from the experience.
Do you find yourself making excuses as to why you can’t ditch the extra weight? Do you have a family history of diabetes, heart disease, or some other condition and you want to stay on top of your health to prevent it? Whatever the reason, it’s important to focus on your health and wellness and many moms put themselves last. It comes with the territory of being a mom. A wellness retreat may be just what you need right now.
Sometimes it’s all about the personal journey. Moms were women before they were moms and sometimes we need to get back to that. It’s important to remember who we are so we can be happier and more fulfilled. This makes us better moms in the process. A personal retreat will help you focus on this and also give you goals you can come home with to continue on your journey.
Some retreats are designed around empowerment which would be beneficial to most moms. If you want to learn how to juggle it all without losing yourself in the process, this is the kind of retreat you can get behind. You will feel inspired and will come back roaring and ready to go!

This is because cleansing and fasting is not for everyone but it can be a fantastic way to reset your body and mind before you get back into the daily grind. There are many different types of fasting and cleansing retreats and many women find fall is a great time of year for doing these, just before the holiday season comes around.
