A lot of people are wondering what really happens during a personal retreat. Unlike company retreats, there is a structure that a group follows. But with personal retreat, the person is the one who dictates what wants to do in order to achieve tranquility and calm. If you are planning to do one in the future, these activities might be worth adding to your retreat list:

  • Appreciate the surroundings


When you are living a busy and hectic life, you tend focus on problems at hand. You don’t have time to look around you and appreciate the surrounding. And if you have time to look around, all you see is buildings, cars, and streets. Definitely not an inspiring sight. When you have the chance to do a personal retreat, grab the opportunity to appreciate the surroundings. Take in the greens, the blue sky and the amazing view. It is not every day that you can look at this kind of scene.  Stroll the beautiful exterior of the Desert Palm Villas in Dubai and take a lot of pictures for you to remember this moment by.


  • Meditate and focus


Going to a personal retreat is a chance for you to refocus your mind and realize your goals. Sometimes, your busy schedule do not allow you to focus on important matters. You always get sidetrack by problems and other concerns. During your retreat, try to bring that focus back to the things that matters. It can help you set your priorities straight and make a solid plan to achieve your goals.


  • Get your body moving


Lack of time mean also less opportunities for you to exercise. More often than not, the only exercise you are getting is walking to your office table. Having a retreat will give you the chance to sweat and get your body moving again. It can do wonders for your mind and body. Facilities of The Desert Palm in Dubai include gyms and workout stations accompanied by trainers.

  • Write something inspiring


You don’t have to be a great writer to write something inspiring. A simple as jotting down your goals and your plans is inspiring enough. It will serve as your guide and reminder when you get back to your busy lives. Writing can also help you to say things that you are not able to express on a regular basis.


  • Just breathe


Figuratively, of course. With a lot of things going on in your life, you have less to zero time to breath. You are always on the move. When you are in a personal retreat, everything stops to a halt. This is to give you time just to relax and empty your mind. After that, clarity sets in.
