Life can get pretty hectic, so it can be nice to escape from your routine every once in a while for some relaxation. You'll be surprised how refreshed you’ll feel upon returning home from the countryside. During your retreat, look for activities that involve spending time in nature to get your mind and body feeling great again.
3 Activities to Try on Your Upcoming Retreat
An extended walk outdoors is an excellent way to improve your mood, relieve stress, and boost your energy levels. You'll also get to soak up some beautiful views that you won’t get at home. If you've gone away a significant other, family members, or friends, hiking will also provide time for you to catch up away from screens and daily stresses. Plus, the boost of endorphins and dopamine from exercising outdoors will be sure to put you in a positive mood.
Continue your relaxing retreat by heading to the nearest pond or stream with a couple of fishing rods and some bait. The quiet time catching and releasing fish will help you to forget any stress in your daily life and allow you to focus on your thoughts. It's also a good bonding activity if you choose to bring someone along. You can get some sun and, if the person who comes is new to the sport, you can show them the ropes and possibly find an activity you can do together more often.
3. Building a Bonfire
Part of getting away is finding the time to sit back and do practically nothing. During your countryside retreat, spend the beautiful nights by the fire pit. You can enjoy the clear sky full of sparkling stars while snacking on some marshmallows and relaxing with a glass of wine.
