Colorado dude ranch vacations are for everyone. Over the years, we’ve had all kinds of folks come to us from every corner of the globe. However, we’ve recently noticed a trend of CEOs, executives, and other high-performers returning to our ranches each year.
In the process of getting to know these folks, we’ve learned that those with high demand and stressful jobs are amongst the most likely to truly benefit from a break from the everyday life. To understand why, let’s look at some of the most common feedback we get from our guest with fast-paced/ high demand careers:
Missions Critical: The Urgent NEED to Unplug
Part of being in charge is being connected. While that’s a normal part of life for many, it also means executives and leaders are especially in need of opportunities to “unplug” from phones, tablets, and other devices. It’s amazing how much your head can clear after just a few days without the regular onslaught of emails and texts. A Colorado Dude Ranch promotes the unplugged, slower paced western lifestyle. Embracing this new life-style for a full weeks sends people home with new ideas, a sense of well being and much needed one on one time with family.
Active Vacations Fulfill A Desire for Accomplishment
One unique trait of driven individuals is that they need regular breaks but have trouble enjoying them. Their internal drive compels them to keep moving toward something, even when their minds and bodies are crying out for diversion. At a Colorado dude ranch, there are activities like horseback riding, skeet shooting, hiking, and whitewater rafting that all offer a sense of accomplishment and learning something new. They give you a chance to “kick back” while still knowing you have done something extraordinary at the end of the day.
Never Underestimate the Uninterrupted Time with Family at a Colorado Ranch
It’s no secret that it can be difficult to manage a high-powered career with a healthy family life. Getting away to nature – with a change of scenery and no technology – can offer those with busy professional lives a fresh opportunity to connect with spouses, children, and other loved ones. Don’t underestimate the power of nature and immersing yourself in a new lifestyle to restore and renew your closest relationships.
Discover Hobbies You Didn’t Know You Loved
Making it to the top can mean giving up treasured hobbies. But without those pastimes, stress can get the best of you, and your productivity can suffer. By spending time on a Colorado dude ranch, you could learn some new hobbies (like fly fishing or bird watching) that you can take back to your day-to-day life. These could end up being healthy, grounding, and stress-relieving activities that make it easier for you to keep your edge even back at home.
It goes without saying that we feel anyone who gets overwhelmed by technology, stress, or the day-to-day grind can benefit from a Colorado dude ranch vacation. So, whether you’re an executive or simply a really busy individual who is feeling the stresses of everyday life, this could be your perfect opportunity to step off the hamster wheel and get away for a week.
