Work burnout is real — and if you've experienced it you know just how crippling it can be. Among the different ways you can try to refresh and reset to avoid falling victim to this common modern affliction, one of the most tried-and-true methods is getting out of your routine and into a peaceful, calming, and self-care-focused setting. Perhaps that's why Airnbnb wellness vacations have been some of the site's most sought after listings.
In terms of a wellness getaway, there could be a few different factors to consider. Perhaps your requirements include a scenic setting to get a yoga flow in, or maybe you necessitate access to healthy eating options wherever you are. For others, just simply detoxing from digital technology and spending time surrounded by nature is enough to make you feel well-rested and totally renewed.
That said, no matter what it is you're seeking for your next vacation, you can always count on Airbnb to offer plenty of options that are a lot more affordable than most traditional resorts and spa getaways. In fact, options for rentals that include amenities like a jacuzzi big enough for two, a lap pool, an indoor sauna and fitness equipment, and even eco-friendly features — all with a wide variety of scenic settings — start at under $150 per night.
