While we believe that adventure holidays are the ones that make for the most unforgettable moments, we all know that they can also be pretty demanding, both physically and mentally. For that reason, it’s important to take a break and give your body a rest and the following are some suggestions to do just that:
Treat yourself to a Spa
Most adventure holidays are going to leave you sore and tired from having too much fun. If you want to get the most out of your time, you’ll need to recover your mind and body quickly. What’s the best way of doing so? A few days at a spa of course! Get a massage to help your body relax, ways to eat healthy food to clean out your system and re-emerge after a few days as a new person ready to go on the next adventure.
Soak up some culture
The only problem with adventure is that after a while, only a bigger thrill than your previous escapade will suffice! But by enjoying something that makes you slow down and reflect, your mind and body will be even more engaged with the next adventure. Soaking up some culture where and when you can, such as experiencing the opera, is a great way to take some downtime and get to know the cultural aspect of your surroundings.
Hang out in a library
If you’re in a big city on an adventurous exploration and you want a cheap and simple way to recharge, check out the local library. Many big cities have incredible libraries that most people just simply ignore. When the hustle and bustle of outside gets overwhelming, there’s something about sitting down and reading a book in silence that can help you get perspective on everything you are doing.
Or just hit the beach!
If you love carbs as much as the next person to you, and there’ve been functions when you have walked several blocks out of your way to get food on a stick. But facts finding shows that eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables provides a boon of advantages, involving protection against heart disease, cancer, and the effects of aging — something that possibly couldn’t be said for consuming copious amounts of shawarma. Or practice the “50 % rule and regulation”: goal to have half of your lunch or dinner plate covered in vegetables.
A day at the beach is so simple to plan, but it’s so effective in lots of different ways. Take a blanket with you, lie down, listen to the waves and feel your body and mind instantly relax. If there’s no beach nearby, there’s almost always a lake, river or waterfall so put in that little bit of effort and find somewhere with some water to relax by.
Giving yourself a break either during or after a long adventure is nearly as important as packing your ski’s for a trip to the Alps, so don’t neglect your down time – your mind and body will surely thank you for it!
