Now there’s the question of the moment. From racing minds and sleepless nights to a variety of other stress-related ailments and afflictions, pandemic living has taken a toll on everyone’s health, even those of us fortunate enough to have escaped its most serious impacts.

In short, we’ve all been through the wringer, so of course wellness is top of mind as travelers venture out into the world again.
“More people are looking to use their precious travel time with a new emphasis on not only taking care of themselves, but learning how to improve their general health,” says Anne Dimon, president of the Wellness Tourism Association.
