Raise your hand if you’ve ever come to work after a trip, turned off your out-of-office message, then said to your cubicle neighbor: “I need a vacation from my vacation!” Yep, we’ve been there, too. The solution to PTFS (Post-Trip Fatigue Syndrome) just might be opting for a wellness retreat instead. These relaxing getaways (which have become the most popular form of tourism, according to the Global Wellness Institute) boost your energy instead of zapping it with activities to help you de-stress and kick your Instagram addiction, if only for a week.

We can’t reach through your screen and book your trip for you, but we can give you advice on what to pack. And staycationers, take note: Everything here works just as well during a self-care weekend at home.
