Technological advances have made us more connected in more places than ever before. While these conveniences have many benefits, they can also make it nearly, but not totally, impossible to completely unwind. With over 5,000 acres of pristine wilderness, Skytop Lodge is the perfect Poconos spa resort for a relaxing vacation. For a truly restful getaway, unplug from technology and reconnect with nature, your loved ones, and yourself. Still not convinced? Here are 3 benefits to going offline and on vacation at the premier Poconos spa resort, Skytop Lodge.
When we are always looking at a screen, we can lose sight of what is right in front of us. Social media is a great way to stay in touch, but it simply cannot replace time spent in the company of friends and loved ones. Whether you are greeting the morning together on the porch of one of our streamside cottages, playing a round of golf at the top of the Poconos, or sharing an exquisite meal in the Windsor Dining Room, there are many different ways to reconnect with the important people in your life without your phone or computer.
With our phones on our nightstands and multiple computers in most homes, most of us can be reached at any time. Constant notifications from social media and incoming email make it difficult to ever fully escape the stress of work. Downtime, away from work and stress, is rejuvenating. Taking a break can help us come back replenished. For the ultimate in relaxation, book an appointment at the tranquil Skyview Spa. Our trained and certified technicians offer a variety of luxury spa treatments designed to melt away your stress and tension.
According to a 2015 article from Business Insider, the average American spends 40 minutes per day on Facebook. For many people, this time is made up of five minutes here or there, but over the course of a month, these moments add up to 20 hours of time spent online on just one social media site. As a result of this constant connection, many of us feel the expectation that to always respond to requests instantaneously, even when you are not in the office or on a day off. Going offline gives you a chance to reclaim your time off as personal time. Memories are created when we spend time fully present with loved ones, uninterrupted by the chiming sounds of email and social media notifications.
At Skytop Lodge, we love the conveniences modern technology allows. But as a historic Poconos spa resort, we also treasure the things technology cannot replicate. It’s time to relax, reconnect, and reclaim your time with an unplugged vacation. Contact us to make your reservation today.
