The Ultimate San Francisco Wellness Guide

Whether you’re the type to make official New Year’s resolutions or prefer more informal commitments to yourself, you’ll benefit from making wellness a priority in the year ahead. Everyone has their own definition on what wellness means to them, but the gist is the same: feeling good and balanced in regards to one or more of the following aspects of life: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, occupational and spiritual. Here’s a quick snapshot of activities and places in San Francisco that’ll help you improve one or more aspects of wellness in your life.

Physical Wellness

Physical wellness doesn’t just mean physical activity. What you eat, drink or otherwise consume can have a huge effect on how your body moves and feels. Not to mention, a satisfying meal can do wonders for your mental/emotional well-being as well! These are a few of our favorite locales for healthy, satisfying goodies:

The Perfect Long Weekend in San Francisco

When you’re blessed with a long weekend ahead, the possibilities are endless. You could whisk away to Maui or Miami, spend the extra days snuggled up watching Netflix or take advantage of all that your city has to offer. So the next time you’re off work, consider staying in San Francisco and taking some of these ideas for a spin. 


Even without the added stress of planning a holiday get-together, everyday life can be stressful. When you’re given an extra day free of responsibilities, first thing’s first: carve out some time for self-care. 

Self-care means different things to different people, of course, but here are some of our recommendations: 

  • A full spa day at SenSpa—starting with a CBD massage and ending with a personal meditation session in the Somadome. 
  • A morning spent perusing the bookshelves at City Lights, followed by an afternoon of reading at home. 
  • Binge-watch a show or a bunch of movies from your childhood on Disney+


You know that dim sum restaurant you’ve always wanted to try? Been meaning to make your way to the coffee shop your coworker keeps talking about? In the mood for a special bottle of wine or craft cocktail, at a fun themed bar perhaps? 

Make this day into an adventure for your taste buds by choosing places you’ve never been to—and with over 4,400 restaurants in San Francisco, that shouldn’t be hard to do. 


Nothing better to fend off the Sunday scaries than a little endorphin boost. Get your body moving, whether it’s a trip downstairs to The Harrison’s fitness center or something across town. By focusing on physical activity, you’ll boost not only your endorphins but your chances at ending the weekend on as positive a note as possible. Weather permitting, consider a hike overlooking the ocean or a jog around the neighborhood
