Wellness

Jan06

The start of a new year is the perfect time for reflection and promises of future self-care. If 2019 was hectic, busy, and bustling for you – as it was for many – then it may be time to consider your 2020 resolution and refocus yourself on relaxation and recuperation as we begin the new year.

While 80% of “typical” New Year’s Resolutions tend to fail (dieting, exercise, picking up a new skill or hobby), there are still ways to develop a goal that sticks. The important thing is to start small and focus on goals that feel good to achieve. Like booking a mini vacation at La Casa Cottage Resort.

“Take more vacations” is a resolution that anyone can get behind. But it’s more than just a desire for R&R that makes this a great suggestion. Vacationing has proven to improve mental health, help generate creative ideas for work problems, and boost your energy reserves.

Not only that but La Casa Cottage Resort has 2 pools and 3 hot tubs available for guest use. Hot tubs can decrease insomnia, ease bodily aches and pains, and the sweating can even help you shed a few pounds. Rest and relaxation have benefits beyond just “getting away from it all.” A good vacation can revitalize your body, mind, and spirit so that you can return to your daily routine energized and motivated.

Other benefits of visiting La Casa Cottage Resort include: visiting the beautiful Okanagan Valley, spending time near the crystal-clear lake, and enjoying leisurely activities like boating, horseback riding, and golfing.

For some bonus New Year’s Resolution points, try:

  • Turning off your smartphone and other electronic devices for the weekend. Be present in the moment and take a break from screen time.
  • Spend quality time with family and/or loved ones. Ask questions, be an active listener, and take some special time to learn something new about them.
  • Genuinely let go of your cares, stresses, and burdens and allow yourself to be peaceful while you sip fresh Okanagan wines on the terrace.

Resolutions needn’t be difficult, grueling, or painful. In fact, taking some dedicated “you time” will make you a better employee, friend, parent, and partner. Focusing on your inner self, rather than the outer self (on which many resolutions center) is a surefire way to improve your well-being for the New Year and beyond.

And did we mention that a visit to La Casa Cottages can align with more “traditional” resolutions, as well? If you’re looking to get in shape, take a hike through one of the many Kelowna area trails. If you are looking to reconnect with loved ones, invite them to one of the many multi-room properties we offer. There are plenty of fun ways to ring in the New Year with La Casa.

No matter your goal – be it activity or straight relaxation – there’s something ready for you here at La Casa Cottages in the beautiful Okanagan.
