Holidaying in the Wilderness

Hiya everyone! Just before I get into this post, I thought I’d mention that I recently started a Youtube channel! I upload every Sunday (and maybe have some surprise videos as and when) so chances are, you’ve missed a cheeky upload! Please go and subscribe and show me love because it’s scary business!

When it comes to travel, it’s easy to find yourself going to the exact same destinations. Life there is familiar to you. If you’re definitely a beach boy or a city girl, then you make be ready to shake up your vacation experience. While it’s totally ay okay to stick to what you know and enjoy the travel experiences that you really love, it can also be fun to do something different every once in a while, ya know? From heading out to the country to going on a road trip, when you do something that’s far away from what you’re used to, it can be more refreshing. So this is why it’s a great idea to add a wilderness trip to your agenda. If you’re not sold just yet, you will be after these five points hahaha!

1. It’s calming

There’s nothing quite like the wilderness to calm your mind and relax you. Yes, you can get this kind of feeling in a spa or the normal holidays you go on, but that only tends to last a few hours. Nothing beats heading outside. When everything is quiet and you’re surrounded by nature, your mood instantly feels calm. There’s just something about being outside and around green land and wildlife that makes you feel relaxed and refreshed. So if you know you need a break from the stresses of life – this is it. It can truly help with anxiety, I know that so well!

2. It’s healthy

But that’s not all, it’s actually great for your health to be outside. Just take a look at this Business Insider post to find out why. But you’ll definitely find that lots of the tips to convince you – and not just because it’s relaxing to be outside. But when you’re out in the wilderness, you’re usually a lil more active, you’re breathing fresh air, and the combination of both can work wonders for your health.

3. You can still enjoy your break

These days, with everything being so digital and modern, it easy to think that you have to be connected or have access to luxury goods to be able to enjoy yourself. But that’s really not the case. Even in the wilderness, you can stock up on the latest accessories, from somewhere such as 4WD Supacentre, so that you have it all with you. You won’t have to feel lost of ‘go without’ because you can take all of the luxuries you need with you.

4. It actually gives you a break!

But the best part about being in the wilderness is that it does actually give you a break. You may still work when you head to a luxury resort. But when you go out into nature, you have to have that time off. And it can be great!

5. It’s good to get back to nature

There’s really nothing quite like getting back to nature. When you were a child, you would have enjoyed your time out in the garden and countryside, and it’s great to make time to do that again now. Because it really does refresh your mind and allow you to feel energised when you go back to your everyday life.

Those are my five points on why holidaying in the total wilderness is a good thing and such a cool thing to do! Obviously, it’s completely down to the individual but these points have helped me decide on where my next holiday is!
