Why Moms Should Attend Wellness Festivals

By FamilyProof Editors

Have you heard of a Wellness Fair before? Do you know what it is? Being a parent, this would be a great time to learn about a Wellness Festival and why you should go. Attending a wellness festival is a great way to have some me time. You can go away for the weekend either with a friend or by yourself and take the much-needed time. Every year I attend a yoga retreat in the middle of nowhere in the mountains with people I have never met before. I did this to try and make new friends in a new place and to meet people who loved fitness just as much as I did. It was a life changing experience. I got everything I expected to get out of it and so much more. This is something that every mom should try out. But where to start first?

Here are the top 5 festivals coming up in 2018 that you should consider attending:
