During your detox retreat, you will have blocks of free time. Take a half-hour each day to write in a notebook. You can write about your daily experience or whatever comes to mind. Being in a calmer environment will help you work through some new reflections. At home, you might not have the time or energy to journal about your life. You may gain new insights into your relationships and work.


When you head to a retreat, there are exercise classes and yoga you can try out. Having free time to try out different classes will help you find a new interest.
