T R A V E L S L E U T H T he start of a new year is the perfect time to launch that healthier lifestyle you've been thinking about. And, if your plans include getting away from the everyday stress to give you the time needed to focus on the objective, a wellness retreat might be just what the doctor prescribed. At the recent International Wellness Tourism Conference in the Dominican Republic, keynote presenter Dr. Ron Kapp observed that everyone needs to take an active interest in their own health. "The writing of a prescription for a patient is a sacred and solemn undertaking and the prescription says to the patient—this is what you need today," noted the Santa Barbara-based physician, author and anti-aging research clinician who emphasized that an enlightened physician can now also "order up" a well- ness retreat. "These programs jumpstart the lifestyle changes required to prevent and even reverse the ever-increasing chronic diseases of aging so prevalent in today's stressed-out world." Whatever your New Year's Resolution might be, there's a retreat or tour that can help you kick-start the process. Here are a few options to have on your radar: GETTING A BETTER NIGHT'S SLEEP At Canyon Ranch Resort in Lenox, Massachusetts from April 23 rd to April 28 th , 2023, Dr. Michael Grandner, a licensed clinical psychologist, will lead a five-night program, Mastering Sleep: An Immersion Retreat. The behavioural sleep medicine specialist and Canyon Ranch experts will highlight the latest research about sleep and its impact on brain health. The program includes group meals, evening activ- ities such as Yoga Nidra, meditation circle, stretching and relaxation plus much more. Susie Arnett, Sr. Director of Programming and Immersions, says the pro- gram is designed for guests to leave with the ability to become more focused, productive and happy as a benefit from restorative, natural sleep. canyonranch.com/stay/events/berkshires-sleep-immersion-retreat-apr-2023 RENEW AND REJUVENATE In tandem with the launch of the New Year, Hilton Head Health in South Carolina has introduced a program appropriately called Renew.
