How To Get Into a Retreat State of Mind

Off to getaway and unplug from the hustle and bustle of life? Here are Evolve Holistic's tips on how you can get into a retreat state of mind!

Write in your journal before, during and after

If you don't journal, now is the time to start. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go," said E. L. Doctorow. Write down what your mindset is going into the retreat, are there things in your mindset that you wish to change? Make a list of what you hope to get out of it and what your goals are. Writing is the best way to communicate and check in with yourself! 

"A picture is worth a thousand words"

Don't forget to take a camera with you to capture your most memorable moments from the beautiful sunsets to your favourite palm tree.

Kindness and an open mind

You'll often participate in a retreat with others, be sure to share your kindness and attend with an open mind! 

Bring good energy

Bring good energy with you! Whether it's your own natural energy or a stone! A great stone to bring is a rose quartz. It's a stone that cultivates love, beauty and compassion.

Invite a friend

You don't have to go alone! There's nothing better than sharing a life changing experience with a friend! 

Pack according to the activities and the weather

Check your itinerary and the weather of your destination, you will get a better understanding of what essentials you should pack! If you're going to a tropical paradise, don't forget your bathing suit!
