Relaxation Retreat by Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreats

This program is our simplest option, allowing you to stay for just one night or extend your stay as much as you desire.

3 day Relaxation Retreat

This program is for those looking for a quick introduction into a Wellness Retreat and wanting to kick start a more healthy lifestyle. You’ll get a feel for what your body and mind is capable of with some dedicated time away from your normal life. Let someone else take care of your meals, schedule and be guided by our Wellness Team. You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and in the right mindset. 

5 day Relaxation Retreat

If you’re feeling nervous about going on a holiday alone, then our 5 day Relaxation Retreat is an ideal way to experience a wellness holiday. You’ll have the first day or two to acquaint yourself with the surroundings and slowly immerse yourself in the environment. By day 3 you will likely feel very much at home in Shanti-Som and move with ease around the Retreat through each of the various activities and enjoy relaxed conversations with hotel staff and other guests. With a combination of regular yoga, relaxation, nutritious food and sunshine, our guests start to look and feel better with improved skin, brighter eyes and relaxed bodies. Most importantly, feeling happier and motivated by their achievements. 

7 day Relaxation Retreat

You may notice the schedule for a 7 day Relaxation Retreat does not involve a more rigorous routine of activities. The whole point of this holiday is to slow down. For this to happen you need to allow yourself the time and space to do this. It takes time for our minds to quieten, to release any sense of guilt and allow yourself to enjoy. With only 15 guest rooms, Shanti-Som is the perfect sanctuary where guests can quietly meander through the property whilst also feeling part of a group and community. 

What is Burnout?

Coined by the psychologist, Herbert Freudenberger in the 1970s, burnout describes a severe stress condition that leads to severe physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.

Much worse than ordinary fatigue, burnout makes it challenging for people to cope with stress and handle day-to-day responsibilities.

People experiencing burnout often feel like they have nothing left to give and may dread getting out of bed each morning. They may even adopt a pessimistic outlook toward life and feel hopeless. Burnout doesn’t go away on its own and, if left untreated, it can lead to serious physical and psychological illnesses like depression, heart disease and diabetes.

Burnout may be the result of unrelenting stress, but it isn’t the same as too much stress. Stress, by and large, involves too much: too many pressures that demand too much of you physically and mentally. However, stressed people can still imagine that if they can just get everything under control, they’ll feel better.

Burnout, on the other hand, is about not enough. Being burned out means feeling empty and mentally exhausted, devoid of motivation, and beyond caring. People experiencing burnout often don’t see any hope of positive change in their situations. If excessive stress feels like you’re drowning in responsibilities, burnout is a sense of being all dried up.

Who can get Burnout?

Along with career-induced burnout, people caring for children can also have this type of extreme exhaustion. A recent study found that, just like doctors and business executives, mothers and fathers can also burn out.

More simply put, if you feel exhausted, start to hate your job, and begin to feel less capable, you are showing signs of burnout. Personality characteristics like needing to be in control, perfectionism, and being “Type A” can also increase your risk of burnout.

Signs of Burnout

Burnout isn’t always easy to spot. Here are some of the most common signs of burnout:

  • Exhaustion. A clear sign of burnout is when you feel tired all the time. Exhaustion can be emotional, mental or physical. It’s the sense of not having any energy, of being completely spent. Physical symptoms may include headaches, stomach-aches, loss of appetite or sleeping changes.
  • Lack of motivation. When you don’t feel enthusiastic about anything anymore or you no longer have that internal motivation for your work, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing burnout.
  • Isolation. People with burnout tend to feel overwhelmed. As a result, they may stop socializing and confiding in friends, family members, and co-workers.
  • Irritability, Frustration & Cynicism. You may feel like what you’re doing doesn’t matter that much anymore, or you may be disillusioned with everything. You might notice that you feel more generally pessimistic than you used to. While everybody experiences some negative emotions from time to time, it’s important to know when these are becoming unusual for you. Burnout can cause people to lose their cool with friends, co-workers, and family members more easily. Coping with normal stressors like preparing for a work meeting, driving kids to school, and tending to household tasks also may start to feel insurmountable, especially when things don’t go as planned.
  • Frequent illnesses. Burnout, like other long-term stress, can lower your immune system, making you more susceptible to colds, the flu, and insomnia. Burnout can also lead to mental health concerns like depression and anxiety.
