Almost three years after the pandemic, there’s been a major movement. People are adapting to the dynamic nature of travel infused with their newly formed resourceful attitudes towards wellness and tourism. Their collective perspectives towards vacations have shifted from being an escape from the humdrum of everyday life to an inspirational trip that exposes them to the new beauties of the world, cultures, nature, and their inner selves. People are seeking stays that feel like a home away from home, that allow them the opportunity to create memories while also exploring mindful activities that aid the healthy balance of mind and body and integrate a wellness lifestyle, wherever they are.
Millennials, especially, are exploring the idea of what it means to be soulfully healthy. To exercise more, eat mindfully, and become more aware of what their bodies and minds need. Since this translates to every aspect of their lives, it also trickles down to travel as well. Wellness tourism finds its roots in all areas of life, drawing from food, sport, relaxation, culture, and more. Traveling and vacationing extend into a conscious diet, exercise, meditation, sleep routines, self-care, and a general notion of self-improvement and healthiness.
To emphasise the importance of slowing down to focus on the self as well as one’s overall well-being, Jetsynthesys’ ThinkRight.me partnered with The Leela Palace, Hotels & Resorts to create two pillars for the latter’s wellness programme, Aujasya by The Leela, called Restore (Food) and Renew (Mindfulness). The idea of the two pillars is to encourage guests to consciously seek mindful moments that nourish their minds, bodies, and souls through nutritious food as well as rejuvenating activities.
To mark the collaboration, The Leela Palace, Hotels & Resorts and ThinkRight.me launched the first pillar Restore (Food), in association with nutritionist and food consultant Ankita Jalori. Keeping the ethos of mindful eating in mind, the food menu at the hotel chain was reformed by chefs Simran Singh Thapar and Rishabh Anand with a focus on millets, lean proteins, low-fat dairy, and whole grains.
The second pillar curated by ThinkRight.me, Renew (Mindfulness) features four segments of a balanced mind and body carved into; 1. Maitri (Loving Kindness), 2. Samskara (Inner Refinement), 3. Ekaa (Being One), and 4. Sukh (Mind and Body Balance). In each segment, guests can find a selection of guided meditations, sound healings, music, and yoga sessions that seamlessly blend into their routine and can be accessed on their phones, anywhere, anytime during their stay at all The Leela properties. The programme also features a special segment for children called Aujasya Junior that encourages little ones to take healthy steps towards a well-balanced and happy future.
With a veritable regale of mindful options at their fingertips, guests can explore greater experiences and opportunities when it comes to traversing wellness avenues. The idea is to create a safe space for travelers to not only unwind but also continue living a balanced life with daily mindfulness practices, even while on the go. Practicing meditation and yoga while traveling can be hard, but The Leela Palace, Hotels & Resorts makes the choice easy for you. All you have to do is show up for yourself.
