It’s Time for a Digital Detox in Santa Fe!

US News recently ranked Santa Fe as one of the Top 7 Destinations to visit to take a “Digital Detox” from our hyper-connected day to day life. “…with its wealth of wellness-oriented retreats, upscale spas and spiritual-based settings, it’s an ideal destination to unwind and escape it all.”

While there are lots of positives to being connected to everyone whenever we want, it’s important to take some time to yourself and unplug. According to Becoming Minimalist, here are 7 Important Reasons to Unplug. Our favorite reason of theirs is:

Life, at its best, is happening right in front of you.
Our world may be changing. But the true nature of life is not. Life, at its best, is happening right in front of you. These experiences will never repeat themselves. These conversations are unfiltered and authentic. And the love is real. But if we are too busy staring down at our screen, we’re gonna miss all of it.

Where could you have your Digital Detox in Santa Fe? There are plenty of places to go and reconnect with yourself and/or nature!

Ghost Ranch “made famous by painter Georgia O’Keeffe—encompasses 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors and vast skies. People from all over the world come to work together in creation care, to paint, write poetry, to hike, ride horseback, to research globally renowned archaeological and fossil quarries or simply to rest and renew their spirits.”

Upaya Zen Center is a Zen Buddhist practice, service, and training center. Their vision focuses on the integration of practice and social action, bringing together wisdom and compassion. With retreats and daily meditations, it’s a great place to go find solitude and mindfulness.

Ten Thousand Waves provides a traditional Japanese spa experience with massage options and hot tubs to relax your day away.

Bandelier National Monument is an amazing place to connect with our past – covering over 33,000 acres of rugged but beautiful canyon and mesa country. See evidence of a human presence here going back over 11,000 years.  Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities. What better way to appreciate unplugging than experience our own history?

With so many options for places to disconnect and reconnect with yourself in Santa Fe, what are you waiting for? Book your stay in your new home-away-from-home now!
