It’s spring, which means we’re coming out of hibernation after a winter mostly spent indoors—tucked away in an office juggling projects, deadlines, tech devices, and all the other distractions that come with modern living. That’s why now is the time to shift your focus away from screen time to some well-earned quality time. And it’s not just us saying this—there is plenty of research to prove the health benefits (mental as well as physical) of time spent in the outdoors, appreciating nature, playing sports or other activities, and using your imagination and conversational skills rather than relying on technology to entertain. That’s why a vacation at Vidanta is the perfect antidote to your busy, tech-filled life. And no matter which Vidanta resort you choose, each one has a host of unique activities to bring you outdoors, away from the screens, and closer together with the people you care about. Read on to see just a few highlights from our favorite resorts.
