treat yourself.

I wrote recently about my ongoing struggle with anxiety and depression. While things have already markedly improved in the weeks since that post was written, I still need to do more. Because the truth is… I’ve been going through some SHIT this past year and there is no amount of self care that is too much.

I first learned about Red Mountain Resort just outside of St. George, Utah a few years ago. Since learning about it, I have been completely obsessed with going there on a solo vacation that is all about focusing on wellness and healing and putting myself above everything else.

This weekend, I finally decided to take the plunge and book my getaway for the week of Thanksgiving. So while everyone is enjoying their turkey and stuffing, this will be my view:

I’m taking a trip that will feed my soul. Days will begin with meditation, a healthy breakfast and a hike (in this hideous, hideous landscape)

After a morning of hiking, lunch, pilates and/or yoga follow. And then every afternoon, more meditation and a spa treatment before dinner and then the night ends with nutrition discussions, acupuncture and relaxation.

I have never traveled alone unless it was for work. I have never indulged in anything like this. I’m doing things like Reiki and Chakra balancing and focusing on my own personal energy, which probably sounds like a bunch of crazy hippie mumbo jumbo, but I really DGAF, for the record.

Yoga in the canyon, steam rooms, massages, curling up with a good book, reworking my energy and focusing on what I have to do to be the best me I can be? Sounds like the best way to give thanks that I could ever imagine.
