You would think that going away for a long weekend with your girlfriends would insure you returned home relaxed and happy to see your teenagers. And I was initially thrilled to see my kids. I missed them a lot.
Even a short break from the stress of everyday life is enough to trigger a renewed sense of health and well-being. But choose to spend your reprieve at a wellness retreat, and your mental and physical fitness will reach new heights.
It's a win-win situation: World-renown Miami Beach, a flip flop-wearing tourist's haven, and Downtown Miami, a vibrant new hot spot for upscale locals. Vacationing in these districts gives visitors the best of both worlds: Big beach fun and deluxe city life.
I love chilling out at the beach or a spa as much as the next person for a vacation -- but sometimes to relax you just need to kick things into high gear, to challenge yourself and to try something new.
