Once upon a time, recharging batteries referred only to the energy sources we depend on to keep our cars and electronic items functioning. These days, bodies and spirits need recharging, too. Nutrition experts say that recharging the body’s batteries by eating healthy foods is so important, it’s been recognized by scientists who study the topic. It’s called adaptive resilience. Neglect well-being routines that keep you fueled and your battery is going to run out of juice!
Battery recharges aren’t only delivered by the way we feed ourselves. Putting distance between ourselves and the stressors and influences that drain our bodies of energy and compromise our sanity, balance, and equilibrium is one of the best decisions you can make to recover from personal energy drains. The benefits you derive from scheduling these escapes include:
- Greater job satisfaction
- Enhanced creative thinking
- Increased ability to cope with stress
- Lower levels of burnout
- Greater immunity from sickness
- Improved ability to make decisions
- Stronger relationships.
Some destinations are better recharge stations than others
Take the advice of stressed-out travelers who know how it feels to run on empty before they arrive at Manta Island Resort, the private island off the Belize coastline that specializes in human battery recharging.
Because everything about a sojourn at this haven is covered by all-inclusive packages and enticing add-ons, choosing Manta over less-desirable properties removes the planning, work, and responsibility from your shoulders for the duration of your visit.
Island staff has been trained to respond to folks whose batteries need reviving by encouraging guests to do only what their bodies and minds crave. Some stay active to work off stressors. Others obey the need for rest and relaxation. If you’re like most Manta Island guests you’ll find it’s easy to tailor your visit to fit your intuitive needs.
