Summer is here! The leading specialists in wellness holidays worldwide, Health and Fitness Travel, steps in to give us some ideas of making the most of the season. This year, take full advantage of that cool spring breeze and draw up a bucket list of indulgent, adventurous and wanderlust ideas you’ve been longing to try all winter!
Whatever your lifestyle, there’ll be something on this healthy hedonistic list you’d love to give a go and will help enliven an even better you! Summer is all about those new beginnings, so embrace the untrodden path and tick off something you’ve been dreaming of.
- Head High
Don’t just go for a stroll around the park this Summer – take those feet of yours up something massive! Sure, doing any kind of cardio exercise will produce endorphins, but it’s having a bird’s eye view of a mountain range that will positively fill you with a sense of wonderment. We often get scared off by long hikes – “oh, I don’t have the time to do that” – but, in reality, most hikes won’t last more than a day and it’s a good excuse to stay in a log cabin, so treat yourself to a weekend somewhere and get some altitude!
- Dive Deep
Embrace that inner mermaid and head out to seek something aquatically awe inspiring. The ocean floor is a world unto itself, and simply putting on some goggles can enable you to experience it. A simple snorkel is all you need to start the adventure, but, if you’re up for it, becoming a certified diver can be really worthwhile! Not only can certification be easy and fun to attain, but it allows you to go places most humans will never see. Each time you go on holiday, you’ve got an extra quiver to you bow for those spontaneously adventurous moments.
- Soak In A Silent Retreat
The beauty of Spring is found in the silence before a flower blooms, so turn inwards for a few days by going on a silent retreat in a beautiful, natural location. Silent retreats are quickly becoming a popular thing to do as our lives get more and more hectic. It’s a perfect opportunity to go on a digital detox and reconnect with yourself and the physical world around you.
- Plant The Power
The world’s a great place, so why not do something to keep it that way? Whether you’d prefer to just plant a few kitchen herbs by the window or embark on a full power organised reforesting project half way up a mountain, the contentment you’ll get from some earthwork will last forever!
- Ride ‘Em Out
Getting back to nature is something we all need to do once in a while and it’s best done by being on something natural too – que horses! Travelling on a friendly steed can both be exhilarating and exceptionally tranquil as you navigate the bush and take in the scenery. It’s also something that can push us past our fears and help teach us trust in those around us (or under us).
- Seek Out Spirit Soaring Spa Treatments
Forget the foot scrub, it’s time to take pampering to an ethereal level! If you complete any of the above ideas, then you’ll know indulgence isn’t just for special occasions. A quick rejuvenation session can lead to anything from a productive work week to that inner wow factor when you meet new people.
