Get healthier on vacation Seven Trips That Will Improve The Body and Mind by Allyson Reedy Never mind T-shirts and key chains. On your next vacation, why not make a smaller waistline, less stress or a rejuvenated outlook on life your souvenirs? Face it: Planning and taking trips are often more taxing than a stressful work week (think crammed itineraries, culture shock and pressure to go, go, go), but it doesn't have to be that way. Instead of needing a vacation after your vacation and feeling guilty for over-indulging, try one of these relaxing trips that actually help you get healthier while on holiday. Canyon Ranch Miami, Florida Montelucia Resort & Spa Scottsdale, Arizona Canyon Ranch kicked off the destination-spa trend, and its Miami outpost is especially health-minded. De-stress with one of Montelucia's spa-and-stay packages (and the mystical Sonoran desert setting doesn't hurt either). Why you'll leave better off: The Healthy Weight for Life plan. This four-night package includes a personalized consultation with a physician, body-composition analysis, lab testing for food allergies and meeting with a lifemanagement coach to strategize diet and exercise changes and ensure they fit seamlessly into your life. Why you'll leave better off: On-site naturopath Lauren Beardsley designed the Stress Rehabilitation Package for those in need of some R&R. The one-and-a-half hour treatment includes systemic acupuncture to rebalance energy, life coaching to help manage stress and an anti-stress supplement to support brain function and mood regulation. Skip the crowds and still enjoy the Florida sunshine in October or April.
