5 Reasons to Go on Nature Retreat
Every day we go about our daily routines and the regular hustle and bustle of life. Think about all we do in a day… gym, run errands, pick up the kids, hours at the office and on the computer. All the information of the day that makes you feel like you’re busting at the seams and you wake up in the middle of the night wondering if you did the right report. Yikes! It seems everyone could use a nature retreat and if the opener wasn’t a good enough reason why here are 5 more reasons why you should take a nature retreat.
Whether we realize it or not
Modern life takes a toll on our physical and mental wellbeing. Although we try to take our breaks and vacations we still come back tired, mentally foggy, and lagging. Why is that? Truth be told the best medicine is right in our backyards, NATURE! Exploring nature improves your brain function and reduces stress, anxiety and even provides a bit of exercise. Let’s take a quick look at some of the great benefits nature retreats provide and why you should REALLY consider taking one.
-Time to Reflect and Restore
A nature retreat can be life-changing. Taking a moment to be at peace while taking in the wondrous beauty of nature can be incredibly reflective. Too often life is like a roller coaster with no stops and the opportunity to have a moment of clarity is one not to be lost. Breathe in the fresh clean air as you open up to embrace nature while finding yourself and to gain clarity to make more meaningful decisions in life. You will return to everyday life with a new outlook and unforgettable memories.
How many times have you been on vacation or taken a few days off of work only to end up working? Sounds familiar… We’ve all done it, but we shouldn’t. Psychologically we need the ability to disconnect and unwind in order to feel rested. A nature retreat can be the perfect excuse to engage in a digital detox and break the unhealthy technology habit for a few days. Enjoy the peace and quiet without hearing a DING and BUZZ for a couple of days.
Break the Routine
Step away from all the daily routines that cause your stress. No Clocks, No Alarms. Have the great feeling of your body waking up naturally with the sun as your guide. Peacefully walk or run down lush nature trails and observe wildlife on an unforgettable adventure. The best part, coming back home actually feeling refreshed.
-Reconnect with People
Nature retreats are a great way to reconnect with your family or connect with new people. Enjoy bonding with your family while cooking meals over a campfire, and embrace cuddles by the fire. Additionally, take the time to make new connections and friendships with people who love the outdoors.
-Retreats can be Economical
A nature retreat can be much more economical and cost-effective as opposed to regular vacations. Most vacations you tend to spend more out of convenience. Travel, restaurants, and activities are so costly, by the time you get home you regret having taken the vacation. Even though no one wants to be bothered with cooking a meal on vacation, when you’re outdoors it’s an experience! Go back to your primitive roots and cook over a fire, you’d be surprised how much fun it is. So, the time you want to take a few days away from the “Norm”, go on a nature retreat by yourself, with a significant other, or with family.
