Curb That Insomnia
Rest and recovery await in the mountains.
If one-third of American adults don’t get enough sleep, maybe it’s because we’ve forgotten how. YO1 Longevity and Health Resorts, a 131-room retreat nestled amid 1,300 acres of pine forests and lakes in upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains, is more than a tranquil setting to catch up on your z’s. Custom three-night insomnia-management programs aim to bring the body’s energy back into balance with a mix of Ayurvedic and naturopathic therapies, while also teaching tools (breathing exercises, for example) to use going forward. Acupuncture, aromatherapy, meditation, and calming yoga help reduce anxiety, while Ayurvedic techniques like Shirodhara—pouring warm oil on the forehead in a rhythmic movement to improve energy and reduce anxiety—are intended to rebalance energy pathways. Organic vegetarian meals, with dishes such as chickpea masala stew and eggplant lasagna, can help reboot your digestion, and a resident nutritionist will assess your diet and flag foods (like that dark chocolate you covet) that may be keeping you up at night. You’ll be schooled on good sleep-hygiene habits (adopt a consistent bedtime, avoid bingeing on House of the Dragon late into the night) and encouraged to hike or bike the property’s vast network of trails, since exercise enhances sleep quality. From $899, all inclusive
