Why you need an Unplugged Belize Vacation in the New Year

What exactly is an unplugged vacation? Imagine time, minus television, computers, iPads, and phones... focused on people - where you literally unplug yourself from sensory overload! We challenge you to get away from the daily grind, to reconnect, to refresh. 

Most of us are addicted to electronics, and a fast pace and don't even realize it. Ask yourself, when is the last time I went to bed without watching the news (especially around election time)? Or checking email or Facebook - one last time? So why not take an intentional break from the hum of daily life?

 Here are Top 4 Reasons you need to consider it:

- Your brain needs to detox. There is a gland in your brain called the pineal gland. Its responsible for regulating melatonin, which helps you to relax and get to sleep. Your computer screen overstimulates the pineal gland. When it’s overstimulated the melatonin in your body is suppressed and your sleep and rest periods will be automatically more difficult. Give your brain a break.
