welcome to retreat society
Retreat Society helps busy people #takeamoment from the daily grind.
In this chaotic world it’s never been more important to prioritise self-care and look after our mental and physical wellbeing. But sometimes it all just feels too hard, too complicated and too time-consuming.
Retreat Society is all about providing simple guidance to help you take some time for yourself, from our self-care cards, to our small business directory and our blog and resources.
So whenever you find yourself caught up in the hustle and bustle, remember it's okay to take a moment to retreat from it all - in fact, it's essential to ensure you can better show up for yourself and all those around you.
it's so nice to meet you
Although we know that prioritising self-care is important, and we know that resting and recharging is essential for our physical and mental wellbeing, finding time for ourselves can just feel too hard, like another chore to add to our to-do list rather than something to be enjoyed and savoured.
Especially when we think it needs to be another element done 'perfectly' in order to get right.
But I've come to learn that real self-care doesn't have to be as daunting (or as perfect!) as we think.
It can be as simple as taking a quick moment to check-in with ourselves - however that might look.
A quick moment is so much better than none at all, and often it's enough to make us realise that maybe we don't need to be racing as fast as we thought we did in the first place.
That's why Retreat Society is all about simple self-care.
My hope is that if I can learn to take my foot off the pedal and give myself permission to slow down - however imperfectly - then you definitely can too.
Here's to living a little slower, a little kinder and a lot happier.

Hi I'm Em, and I have a problem with burnout.
Too often I find myself caught up in the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, drowning in my to-do list and forgetting to take a moment to breathe.
And I know I'm not the only one. The constant pressure to 'have it all together', from our careers, to our social life, relationships, health, social media profiles and everything in between, has pushed so many of us to try and optimise every aspect of our lives, and it's exhausting. In fact, millennials - a big chunk of us aged between 24-39 - have now been labelled 'the burnout generation' as this pressure overwhelms us.
