Valentine's Day A Great Time for Retreat

Valentine's day is a perfect time to Retreat in Sedona to reflect, release stress, and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Below find some tips to release your stress and renew your passion for life. Often we get caught up running from something that isn't really after us. Running from one relationship to another, one job to the next, or from one event to another. Most of our retreat guests retreat to release this habit of constant busy-ness. Next time you find yourself caught in your "busy" cycle--stop. Take a deep breath and visualize yourself in nature. When time permits spend five minutes, or fifteen minutes in nature and clear your mind. As you stop running and the busy habit; you might just find that you have been running from your "self".

Are you seeking inner peace? Here is a tip to bring more inner peace today. Focus your energy on what you want to accomplish today. Gift yourself this reward, when you complete your goals. Create a retreat in the comfort of your own home and the privacy of your bathroom. Collect rose petals from your rose garden, and dump them into your bath. Collect a few blooms from your lavender plant and dump that along with your rose petals. If you don't have rose petals or lavender in your garden, then substitute 2 drops of essential oil of lavender, 2 drops of ylang/ylang, and 2 drops of clary sage. Play your favorite relaxing music, and light a candle. Ahhhhhhhh.......... retreat, meditation, relaxation, and inner peace is only moments away, it's free, and the perfect valentine's gift.
