A Getaway That’s Good for Your Health

The time that you spend on holiday or vacation is time that it very well spent. Getting away from it all gives us the opportunity to spend time with our families doing things we love. In fact, scientists from the Icahn School of Medicine, the University of California, and Harvard have found that just six days away can have a strong positive impact on stress and the immune system and can be beneficial for your overall well-being.

Reconnect with Nature

A great way to spend a vacation is to put away your phone and other devices, turn off the TV and reconnect with nature. Being aware of the natural world around you can calm the mind and relax the body. Spending time in an Eco Village such as the Bloo Lagoon which attracts birds, butterflies, gekos and even the occasional monkey or monitor lizard, could really help you to tune in to nature. Connecting with the natural world, even for just a few days, could re-awaken a sense of spirituality which can have a highly positive impact on your health and well-being.

Add Some Meditation

A report in the British newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, on the research carried out into the benefits of a holiday, noted findings that suggested the positive effects may be increased where an element of meditation is included. A vacation where you can reconnect with nature and take part in a meditative activity such as yoga would be the perfect combination.

Yoga devotees all over the world will tell you how a regular yoga practice leaves you feeling calm, positive, and able to cope with anything life may throw at you. Imagine how relaxing it would be to start each day with a yoga session in a specially designed space within sight of the crystal clear ocean. Practising yoga and being at one with nature may create a deep, peaceful feeling that could help you cope with the stresses of everyday life long after you return home.

A vacation where you can reconnect with nature, perhaps even reawaken a sense of spirituality, and enjoy a calming yoga practice is not only great while it lasts. It could reduce your stress levels, give your immune system a boost and increase your overall sense of well-being even after the plane touches down on home soil and brings you back to reality.
