Retreats to Help Heal That Won’t Break the Bank

There’s nothing more refreshing than taking some time off to set work and life aside for a few days to help rebalance your mind and body, especially when you’re dealing with the symptoms of PTSD. Of course, you can’t just take off work any time you want and spend thousands on a retreat, even if it does promise to promote healing and change in your life for the better. Sometimes, there’s no way around that though and you feel you can’t get the healing you need without breaking the bank or going into debt.

If all you need is a little solitude to get your mind right, check out these respites and retreats.
