In my humble opinion, everyone should take at least one solo trip to unplug and reflect. Something about spending time in solitude in an area outside of your comfort zone generates a level of energy, peace, and tranquility like never before.
For me, those moments were most recently created in Arizona. I spent a few days in the Copper State and used the time to unplug from social media – Well really the internet entirely. It was an excellent way for me to find clarity and recharge myself. To be honest, I didn’t miss being digitally connected to the world because there was so much for me to be connected to in my physical environment.
One of the highlights of my visit was spending the day in the beautiful city of Sedona. I genuinely believe in the healing nature of the town and found it to be the perfect place to jumpstart my trip.
Sedona is known as, “the most beautiful place on Earth,” and quite honestly, I’d definitely put it in the running. Everywhere I turned, I saw breathtaking views. Even driving down the highway produced many audible gasps at my horizon. It’s small-town feel coupled with its breathtaking landscapes, including the famous red rocks, made it the perfect place to mentally escape from the hustle and bustle of the real world.
Sedona also happens to be renowned as a place of wellness. If you’re looking for a space to recharge, reenergize, and reconnect, Sedona is the prime place to do it. One of the ways to do that in Sedona is to visit an energy vortex site. Energy vortexes are locations where physical energy is either entering the Earth or projecting from the Earth. There aren’t many places in the world where these vortexes are supposedly located. Sedona has four – Bell Rock Canyon, Boynton Canyon, Airport Mesa, and Cathedral Rock. These vortexes are supposed to be transformative and magnify whatever emotions or feelings you are experiencing at the moment. Many people have mentioned feeling the energy like a vibration throughout the body. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any physical effects, but I had a strong emotional connection to the Earth surrounding me and immense inner peace.
If you’re an outdoor lover, you’ll find plenty to do in Sedona. You can hike its many canyons and trails, take a jeep ride through a canyon, go horseback riding in the desert, or fly over the scene in a hot air balloon or helicopter.
But you don’t need to be an outdoor enthusiast to experience the Red Rock Country. Sedona is known for its spas and wellness centers just as much as its known for its outdoor activities. Check into one of the spas or resorts for a unique experience and restorative treatment that will have you re-centered and ready to jump right back into everyday life!
Sedona is a jewel that I’ve fallen quickly in love with and will definitely be back time and time again! I can truly say I’ve found my happy place 😊
What is your happy place, and where do you like to unplug?
