Doing our small part to help everyone going through this time of social distancing, the Wellness Tourism Association is working with our members to offer you Healthy@Home, a new program offering many of the things you might experience under the umbrella of Wellness Travel without ever having to leave your home. Our mission is to do something positive to help anyone needing inspiration and advice, along with words and moments of wellness in these trying and challenging times brought about by the Covid19 pandemic.
The good news is that hotels, resorts, retreats and destinations around the world are slowly and smartly reopening and welcoming guests once again. Here’s a list.
Here at Healthy@Home we’ll be adding new options on a regular basis as this crises continues to keep us inside our homes, and close to our loved ones. As best we can, we are collectively trying to help people maintain or even kick-start a wellness lifestyle while, perhaps, even helping elevate feelings of isolation. Simply scroll down to what our members are offering. And, if you like, please share with friends and family who might also be feeling the isolation of these challenging times. It’s the small practices and habits we work into our daily lives that combine to keep us healthy.
Here’s a round-up of what WTA Members are offering under the banner of our new Healthy@Home program:
