Ready to rejuvenate?
Take a deep breath. Now, exhale. You survived the holiday madness! It’s a new year and the perfect time to funnel some of that holiday kindness back to yourself. And what better way than a weekend to unplug, unwind and rejuvenate so you can start the year as your best self?
Here are some of our favorite ways to give your wellbeing a boost.
Get out. Of the house, that is.
Despite our best intentions, it’s too easy to get caught up in the cycle of to-dos and errands with a pile of dirty laundry staring you in the face. Instead, relax and unwind someplace comfy and inviting—that’s not your house. Up the cozy quotient and escape somewhere with a fireplace and jetted spa tub.

Sleep the day away
It’s one of the first things to fall to the wayside when things get busy, but good sleep isn’t just a nice-to-have. Sleep is critical to your health—physical, mental, and emotional. Good sleep hygiene increases productivity, lower heart disease risk, strengthens social and emotional intelligence, prevents depression, and keeps those numbers on the scale under control. So, find a nice, fluffy bed to curl up and catch up on your zzz’s. Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you.
Connect to nature with a dose of vitamin sea
Sorry, chicken soup, nothing does a body better than a healthy dose of salty sea air. It’s science. Data shows inhaling salty air clears lungs, heals skin conditions and improves sleep—not to mention all the mental and spiritual benefits. With the therapeutic coastal breezes and calming sounds of the Long Island Sound, you’ll find utter solace on the Connecticut Shoreline. It’s the kind of tranquility that can make anyone look forward to the coldest season of the year.
Break a sweat
Get your yoga flow going and feel the endorphins start flowing. Really, any exercise will do but we’re partial to yoga for its added benefits. All that time spent on your mat boosts your immunity, strengthens your bones, regulates your adrenal system, lowers blood sugar, improves focus, eases pain—even increases your self-esteem.
Sauna, steam, repeat
Feel your worries—and those wine toxins—slip away with a purifying sauna and steam. Not only the perfect winter warm up, saunas and steam rooms improve circulation, soothe stiff joints, relieve tension, and offer a host of other health perks.

Feed your body—and your soul
Last but not least, we’d be remorse to leave out self-care darling, the spa. We’re big fans of Saybrook Point’s “The Kate” Rose Wrap—a 75-minute nourishing facial that removes all traces of holiday stress and hydrates your skin to perfection. Plus, how can we resist anything named after Old Saybrook’s own, Katherine Hepburn?
Now, head home feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the new year.
