12 Hudson Valley Parent n March 2020 ME TIME ! Just For Women Recharge at a retreat In addition to women's roles as caregivers, they are often simultaneously balancing work, running a business, maintaining their personal relationships, and running their households. A women's only wellness retreat, like the one hosted at Frost Valley YMCA every year, gives women the space and time to focus solely on their wellbeing, including physi- cal, mental, and spiritual health. Often, retreat classes not only get a woman's heart pumping through exercise classes, but also offer massage or acupuncture sessions. Mindfulness can come through activities like hiking, focused breathing, yoga, or meditation. Activities for self-expression may include writing, painting, and sculpting. Moms should consider taking part in a wellness retreat once a year or more as time away allows women to recon- nect with who they are as individuals outside of the needs of others. It's also a great way for women to bond with others. Look for a retreat that supplies meals and provides whatever a woman needs to recharge, whether that's a heart-pumping adventure, the calm serenity of nature, or the laughter and camaraderie of other women.
