Have you ever felt like the pressure of daily life was too much for you to handle? Our routines are getting tighter, and the constant need of being productive puts too much weight on our shoulders – or more adequately, our minds. We may not be able to change our circumstances, but we can learn how to deal with them.

Burnout is a state of emotional and physical exhaustion experienced after long periods of stress. We might think that in order to have a better performance at work, we require putting more and more hours into it. However, sometimes it is exactly the opposite. Feeling burnout reduces our productivity, creativity, and engagement in what we are doing. We disconnect ourselves from our body in a way we do not even realize, affecting everyone around us: is it our team or family.
Meditation is a great help for moments of stress and anxiety. It improves attention, cognitive skills and makes us sleep better. When you stop time for a while and focus on your breathing, you begin to observe yourself from a distance, watching your thoughts and feelings, without having to act on them. This gives you a different perspective, which allows you to see the situations from a higher point of view, helping you to navigate through life’s never-ending requests.
The retreat is an ancient practice present in different cultures.
A retreat is a moment in time and space, in which we consciously remove ourselves from any distraction or need to do anything besides being guided through meditation, yogic practices, and silence. It’s not a staycation nor a day filled with non-stop activities, it is a deeply transformative experience.
