If you’re like many other people right now, you’re working overtime, falling behind on your household tasks, and struggling to strike anything that resembles a balance between your work and personal life. Oh yeah, and the endless barrage of technology in your daily life isn’t doing anything to help your stress levels.


You need a self-care trip to reset your mind and regain a healthy perspective on life. You need to smash your routine, experience new sights, and do nothing but relax for a few days. Below, Socialite Spaces has listed the four best US cities for self-care reset traveling!


Houston, TX


If you’re looking for little rest and relaxation, Houston has endless options. You can take an art class, visit a local art gallery, or go to an amazing art museum like the Museum of Fine Arts Houston to get inspired. Check out one of the many spas like Bare Necessities Spa & Boutique,  Milk + Honey, or My Spa Joy to rejuvenate your body and spirit. Don’t forget to choose a hotel that provides an exemplary bed, good food, and proximity to activities like The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, Hotel Zaza, and Houston Botanic Garden.


You can see a play, take a tour of NASA, and cheer “let’s go Astros!” at Minute Maid Park. If you choose to take in a game, you can purchase discounted tickets online and filter by price, seat location, and date. Many sellers offer a 360-degree interactive chart, allowing you to take in the views of the field, so you can be sure to get the best seat in the house.


If you fall in love with Houston and can picture yourself returning year after year for downtime, you may want to consider purchasing a vacation home. While vacation home mortgages often require a 20% down payment, you could quickly earn that back by renting out the house as a short-term vacation rental during the times you aren’t using it. If you don’t have such a substantial down payment saved up, consider taking out a second mortgage on your primary house or using a home equity loan to go towards your purchase.


Seattle, WA


Seattle is home to breathtaking views, great coffee, quality chocolatiers, and fun micro-shops. It’s the spot whether you want to catch some rest and zzzs in a hotel and spa like The Woodmark Hotel and Still Spa or the Alexis Royal Sonesta Hotel Seattle, see spectacular sights at the Space Needle, or enjoy thrilling hot air balloon rides.


Consider taking a self-guided tour to experience the best foods, sweets, and coffee, ensuring you go at your own pace and leave satisfied. Before you head home, don’t forget to connect with nature at places like Snoqualmie Falls, Twin Falls, or many of the tremendous Seattle parks.


Glacier National Park, MT


Glacier National Park not only offers beauty but also a quiet and tranquil atmosphere. You can get your energy out by skiing and hiking and then unwind at a lodge, resort, or short-term rental. While in Glacier National Park, rent a boat for fishing, schedule time to practice your photography skills, and take guided tours. This trip will leave you renewed!


Lake Placid, NY


Lake Placid offers adventure, rest, and a connection with nature. If you’re a history buff, you can find joy in places like John Brown Farm, where you’ll get glimpses into 19th-century life. Or you might love the Lake Placid/North Elba Historical Museum within the Lake Placid Railway Station. You can find inner peace by hiking, climbing, floating, and rafting through the area. This is a trip you won’t soon forget and may find yourself returning to yearly.


If the busyness of life is weighing you down, it’s time to take proactive moves to reset your soul and intentionally seek rest. Consider one of the destination spots above to begin your journey back to clarity, peace, and joy. And remember to check discount ticket sites for once-in-a-lifetime events along the way. Taking the time to recenter will inspire creativity and drive you to flourish in your daily life.
