Over and over again, guests at Rush Creek Lodge & Spa have expressed to our staff how important wellness and self-care are becoming in their lives.

Research continues to accumulate that proves consumers consider wellness to be a top priority in their lives, but the definition of wellness is changing. This study explains how the wellness category has expanded beyond diet and exercise to include sleep, appearance and mindfulness. Combining this with the guidance of physicians, consumers are now able to improve their overall health and wellness using the power of the great outdoors. One doctor explains that spending time outdoors has the potential to reduce mental health issues, boost Vitamin D intake, improve vision and better brain function.
