Less is more – declutter and relax

We’re familiar with the saying ‘less is more’. In times of being almost too efficient when it comes to planning our lives to the very last minute, this saying seems rather contradictory. “We’re so busy being efficient that we’ve forgotten to allow ourselves some much-needed leisure time”, explains Michael Altewischer, Managing Director of Wellness-Hotels & Resorts. We all seem to fill our diaries with so many things that there’s little time left to relax. In a recent survey [1], more than a third of those interviewed thought it was necessary to plan their leisure time to avoid being bored. Weighed down by daily plans and responsibilities, we’re all constantly searching for things that make us happy – but when we find them, we rarely take the time to enjoy them.

What do guests currently want and expect? How does the under 30s target group change the market and how do the offers change? The Wellness Trends 2017 survey was conducted by Wellness-Hotels & Resorts’ cooperation, the wellness travel company, beauty24 and Trusted Shops (experts in consumer protection).
