The year 2016 has left a lot of people, stressed, angry, and confused due to events such as Donald Trump becoming U.S. president, the problem in Syria and more. So for 2017, it's important to start the year fresh and there a wellness-inspired travel can help with that.

The co-founder of travel company Black Company Tom Marchant told CNN that with people being constantly connected online, people tend to become overstimulated and exhausted. "Mindfulness and emotional well-being have become increasingly important" during this time, he said.

He adds that traveling and mindfulness "go hand-in-hand" because being mindful encourages people "to be present in the moment." So to start 2017, it's important for people to realign "for a clean slate."
