Splurge, binge, celebrate... and switch off
It might be too late to change plans.
It might be too late to change plans. The lanterns are lit and the kitchen is filled with aromas that will weaken the strong-willed. Mithai binging, feasting at every family meal and non-stop house hopping to wish near and dear ones appears inevitable as Diwali enters its last leg.
While all of this might do wonders to enhance the celebratory mode and bonhomie, the after effects don't auger well for the mind and body. To knock you out of this state, we suggest you sign up for a wellness weekend, located a few hours away from Mumbai. This getaway promises to recharge the cells, post the festive overkill so you return refreshed and re-energised for the real deal.
You can chill out at a comfortable homestay, engage in yoga and meditation sessions, take note of tips on healthy living and soak in the hours of "ME" time to help switch off and clear the mind. This apart, a flowing brook and waterfall and a short trek make for ideal detours on this perfect recharge weekend.
