Mothers are real-life superheroes. We literally do it all! But, oftentimes, we can end up neglecting ourselves because we are so busy! If you’re like me and need a break from your busy everyday schedule, then consider Wanderlust Family Retreats – the perfect solution!

I had my first child in February of 2021. Ever since then, it feels like life is a constant rollercoaster. Between running a multi-platform social brand, a tourism business, and being an on-camera host, I feel exhausted all the time. However, I still try to find time to connect with my baby girl Bella. When I heard about Wanderlust Family Retreats, my ears perked. It is the perfect getaway for us to have mommy-baby bonding time. Plus, it is all-inclusive and close to my NYC home. How ideal is that?! Use code SARAH10 for 10% off.

Wanderlust Family Retreats has a really important mission: “to create an environment that will support mamas to show up with fierce grace and clarity every day.” They provide a “space to reconnect with yourself through fitness, mindfulness, farm-to-table food, beautiful nature, and loving childcare, all while sharing these experiences with both your child and a community of mamas.” Each all-inclusive retreat is four days long and includes built in activities, such as, yoga, meditation, sound baths, hikes, gourmet meals, and rustic dining. Each day is scheduled out to optimize relaxation and connection with your little one. Check out their daily program here. 

Wanderlust Family Retreats is a small business founded, owned, and operated by a toddler mom working a full time job. So inspiring! And, the team is also made up of all mothers, who can relate to and understand the many challenges and joys motherhood brings. Having that camaraderie makes the experience even more special.

This summer, they will be offering two all-inclusive retreats in upstate New York, in the Catskills. The first retreat will be June 6 – 9 and the second will be June 13 – 16. If you’re interested in going, don’t wait to book because it will fill up fast! The Catskills are approximately 2-3 hours from NYC and offer a remote, peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can take in views of Massachusetts and the Berkshire Mountains. And, views of the Catskill Mountains can also be enjoyed. 

Their Retreat Program “aims to provide a much-needed pause from busy schedules and overloaded to-dos, to allow you to breathe” – which is something I think all moms need!

If you can’t make it this June, the 2023 dates are being released this spring! The 2023 retreats will be held in the Catskills and in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. How awesome is that?

Another plus? Wanderlust Family Retreats is “passionate about putting people and the planet over profit so that future generations have the quality of life, protected ecosystems, and preservation of natural resources we envision them to have. They give 1% of all profits to environmental, social and economic sustainability.” In recent years, we’ve seen a lot of negative effects to the environment and it is important to me to support businesses that give back. 

The bottom line is that as a mom, we need to invest in our wellbeing so that we can support our kids. Being the best version of yourself allows you to be the best mama to your little ones. Make time to getaway so that you can be inspired, energized, and transformed. Use code SARAH10 for 10% off. I’ll be joining the June 13- 16 retreat. I hope to see you there!
