You were grateful when the sugarplums stopped dancing in your head, only to be met with heart-shaped boxes of chocolate. And now that cream-filled eggs are lingering around the house, it's time to gather the strength to put aside your weaknesses and get healthy with this week's Escape to the Heartland Spa.

Take a solo journey ($199) or bring your bestie ($350) for an overnight stay at this rural Illinois wellness retreat, less than two hours south of Chicago. You'll enjoy a blissful body overhaul brimming with delicious cuisine at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; one $80 credit per person toward anything in the salon or spa; and unlimited access to fitness classes and facilities.

"Who should go to the Heartland Spa?" asks Decatur Magazine. "Anyone who needs to feel welcomed; anyone who wants to be alone. Anyone who needs a healing touch; anyone who craves vigorous motion. Anyone who needs to stop and think for a minute; anyone who needs to stop and not think for a minute."

You'll awake in a quaint Standard Room with shared bath—situated in the cozy Coach House—and begin your get-healthy quest with a "Greet the Day" walk, the perfect way to jump-start your morning. A hearty breakfast buffet awaits upon your return, offering protein powerhouses such as egg white frittata with mushrooms, onions, and cheese.

You'll get the chance to burn excess calories with an Aerobic Interval class (alternating choreographed aerobic moves with deep-muscle conditioning), followed by a light snack like refreshing blackberry yogurt.

Attend an eye-opening session on preventative wellness before refueling with a guilt-free turkey wrap. You can also learn to master your metabolism or fine-tune healthy cooking skills with classes led by Chef Barb. An Aqua Motion class in the pool will work out your limbs with zero impact on your joints. Post-plunge, use your $80 spa credit to purchase a restorative massage (or any other treatment you'd like) and melt away those kinks and knots.

Tai chi or meditation brings your day of revitalization to a close, but the healthy-living lessons will last way longer than stale candy. And your outlook on life will be much, much sweeter.

  • "This former dairy farm 90 miles south of Chicago is where folks go to hit the reset button, teaching people how to take better care of themselves in a uniquely Midwestern, unpretentious environment."
