Benefits of a Thanksgiving Retreat
There are several reasons why most people choose to celebrate Thanksgiving away from home. Maybe it has always been tradition to go away for the holidays. But maybe it is a new tradition you are hoping to start this year. Pack your bags and get ready for your relaxing Thanksgiving retreat.
More than any other celebratory event, food is the hallmark of a great Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving food varies from family to family, but all of it requires some sort of preparation process. A lot of time and thought goes into making great food, especially a feast such as Thanksgiving. It involves hard work, timing, coming up with recipes, and all the other factions involved with cooking.
Having to work out a cooking schedule to make sure all your food is warm and prepared correctly is a mountainous task. Not having to cook is a major benefit of eating out on Thanksgiving. When you choose to eat out for the holiday, the stress of cooking goes away. You have peace of mind that everything will be taken care of.

Just like the effort you put into your holiday cooking, Thanksgiving comes with a time-consuming clean-up. By going out for your Thanksgiving meal, you are giving yourself the royal treat of no mess and no clean-up. You don’t have to worry about putting things in order, so you can spend more time enjoying what the holiday is really meant for – time with loved ones.
You may also be a person who enjoys a quiet, intimate Thanksgiving. Going away for the holiday can reduce the stress of you having to live up to the holiday potential. At the same time, you can make a weekend out of it and enjoy an instant, unexpected getaway.
Avoiding cooking and cleaning on Thanksgiving and turning hosting over to someone else is everyone’s dream; so why not make it your reality? Eating out on Thanksgiving with your family is a great way to enjoy quality time and actually spend your time talking instead of running around. Sitting down to enjoy the meal is nearly impossible when you are hosting.
You may use this long weekend as a period to reflect on the year behind you. You also may use it to prepare for the coming year. Thanksgiving is the official start to the holiday season. This means it is also the official start to the end of the year. If you want to skip the time spent with family and friends this year, you can use the extra few days to unwind and spend time enjoying yourself. The Holiday season is the best time to travel and chill out.
Opportunity to Treat Yourself
Throughout the year, you tend to go, go, go. Between work and everything else you are juggling, there is barely time to just sit down and relax. It is only healthy that you treat yourself to a Thanksgiving getaway. Take time to visit the spa for a relaxing day or weekend away.
A spa provides you the time and place to relax and de-stress. When you have this time away from the daily stressors, you achieve peace of mind as you wind down. When you leave the spa, you will feel re-energized and ready to be more productive for the coming year.
The spa-cation package at the Delamar Spa Greenwich Harbor is a great way to indulge in a long holiday-weekend escape. This way, you can relax during Thanksgiving and enjoy some quality time for yourself. Even if you spent Thanksgiving with 30 of your closest relatives, you can also use this opportunity to unwind after a high-speed day.
Reconsider Your Tradition
Most people believe that no place compares to home over the Thanksgiving holidays. After looking at the benefits of going away or eating out for Thanksgiving, you are probably reconsidering that Holiday stress that a hostess feels is the only option.
