Sometimes, life throws us a curveball that shakes everything up. More often than not, however, it was a blessing in disguise that made us do something different and gain new skills and experiences. Just ask any of our 2017 Change Makers, who all overcame personal obstacles to accomplish their respective goals. Whether it was making a career switch or conquering a tall feat (literally–it was Mount Everest), they chose to make the most out of a scary situation and empower themselves.
And you can do the same if you put your mind to it. Need a little help figuring out what you wish to change in your life, and how to go about doing it? Consider going for a retreat, which will give you the time and space to think. Plus, some detox and yoga never hurt anyone. You don’t have to go very far, there are plenty of retreats around the region, and here are five worth checking out.
