Burnout in doctors and the healthcare profession is rife, now more than ever.
Health and wellbeing are paramount to ensure the carers can care effectively, and although some employers may offer support and initiatives, individuals need to take their rest time seriously.
At Blugibbon we have found some of our Locum Doctors have their own routines and strategies to combat this, so we thought what better way to help than suggest some Meditation & Spa Retreats that are worth a visit.
1. Centred Meditation
Make this studio your urban sanctuary. This little piece of heaven has been purposefully designed to help get you centred: a tranquil atmosphere, natural surround sound, diffused soothing scent, warm calming tea, and comfortable armchairs propped with cushions and blankets to melt into.
Offsite, they also offer a three-day life-changing journey for urban professionals, some of our own Blugibbon team have been to this retreat and highly recommend it.
Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life to recentre, reconnect and recharge. Centred Meditation has built up a reputation of being one of Australia’s best escapes.
2. Gaia Retreat & Spa
This Spa and Wellness retreat is founded by an Australian national treasure and Hollywood star, Olivia Newton-John.
Gaia Retreat and Spa sits on tranquil gardens spanning across 25 acres of land. If you are looking to rebalance or refocus, Gaia’s retreat offerings are tailored to meet the needs of individual guests.
This award-winning retreat speaks luxury. The food is organic and the treatments are well worth checking out.
Samadhi offers a soul-centred approach and is tailored to guests’ individual needs. Run by Wellness professionals Annah and Wayne Mirananda, Samadhi is located on the Macedon Region which is a sacred place for Aboriginal nations and a welcoming place to rekindle spirits in nature.
4. Harmony Hill Health Retreat
Harmony Hill is Tasmania’s best-kept secret. Its intentions were to be more than just a fancy retreat.
This exclusive getaway will make sure you are relaxed, refreshed and healed from your physical and emotional problems. If you are looking to get your health back on track, this retreat is a must.
5. Injidup Spa Retreat
