How do I start doing self-care?

Our holiday mix for long-lasting regeneration

Self-care is the buzzword of the moment. In recent years, there has been a trend towards talking more openly and honestly about mental health. More and more people are daring to express their needs and shape their lives in a way that fulfils them and makes them happy in the long term. At the same time, fewer of us are willing to put our well-being on the back burner for prolonged periods of time, for example in favour of our career.
If you also want to start taking time for yourself again, for example on holiday with friends, then this article comes at the right time.


What is the meaning of self-care?
The term self-care actually emerged back in the 1980s. Back then, people were talking about a healthy lifestyle at a time when many of us were beginning to spend more and more time indoors and doing sedentary activities. A balanced diet and exercise were propagated as the cornerstones of a healthy lifestyle. This holds true even today, and yet the concept has evolved a lot in the meantime.

Why is it especially necessary to take care of yourself in this day and age?
Our world has continued to change since the 1980s. Some trends, such as sedentary work in enclosed spaces, an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise, as well as an increasing alienation from nature, have become even more pronounced. Added to this is the influence of digital technology, which has now penetrated every area of our lives and is making it increasingly difficult for us to take breaks, switch off (literally and figuratively) and give our senses a time-out from sensory overload.

How do I start doing self-care?
Hotel Elisabeth is a place that is optimised for self-care. In an informal context, as part of a short or longer vacation with friends, your partner or family, we give you the opportunity to get into the habit of a lifestyle that enables you to achieve sustainable physical and mental well-being in the digital age. So, what does this involve?
Sufficient sleep, for example, which you will find in our modern, rustic rooms and suites. Surrounded by mountains and far away from the noise of the city, you will not only sleep extra long, but also extra restful. Aside from that, you can also recharge your batteries outside our hotel - at any time of year and no matter how you prefer to be active. Exposure to and exercise in the fresh air, in the forest and at high altitude are proven to be beneficial to your health. And a self-care vacation with friends in Austria is the best opportunity to embark on a joint outdoor adventure once again.


What you can also expect from us: a varied, regional gourmet cuisine that tastes good AND is healthy. If you thought that flavour and health were incompatible, then let us convince you otherwise - and be sure to take some inspiration home with you. Because if you eat consciously, you are doing something good for your body, mind, and the environment alike.
And last but not least, at the Elisabeth you will find the best conditions for resting, relaxing, and switching off. Whether you’re travelling with friends, or with your other favourite people, a peaceful end to the day awaits you in the wellness area in the pool, in the sauna or on the massage table. You should also treat yourself to a little time-out at home every day where you simply do nothing, for example a relaxing bath, a meditation session or time away from your mobile phone.
Self-care during the holidays is a popular way of getting into new and healthy habits, escaping everyday life for a while, and building routines that make you happy in the long term. Book your holiday with friends in Austria now and treat yourself to a break that offers real relaxation!
