We all have one of those days. Those days where we just want to get away from it all. Or for many, one of those years. 2020 has been quite unpredictable. Getting away from it all is actually the perfect solution.
The best part about it is that you don’t need to go far to reap the benefits of travel. You don’t need a lot of money or a lot of time. Many people have never even seen most of their own country, and that is exactly where you should start. There are so many benefits to travel and we are going to share some of our favorites.
Work, family concerns, bad boss, coworkers, bad weather, there are so many things that stress us out on a daily basis. Getting a new set of surroundings, even for a weekend, can make everything easier to cope with.
Our mental health has a direct link to our physical health. When we are sad or stressed we tend to overeat, sleep more, do less exercise, self-medicate. Stress and overweight can lead to health and heart complications.
Getting away from it all lowers stress and therefore, makes you healthier. Plus, people are often more active when they are somewhere new. Walking around to discover the new area, swimming, and even dancing. Bald Head Island has so much to explore which you can enjoy while taking in fresh air.
Embracing new places and cultures expands your knowledge and your tolerance. Experiencing a different culture gives you firsthand insight into another person’s world.
Eating different foods, hearing different music, seeing how other people live will broaden your way of thinking about people in your own life. To live it for yourself is eye-opening and very rewarding.
Just the thought of not having to go in to work for a few days is enough to help you relax. You don’t need to go far to let yourself completely relax. A few days on the beach or by the pool with nothing to worry about except what to have for dinner. Even the time off from constant emails or meetings can relieve some pressure.
Coming back home can make you fall in love with your home all over again. It’s always nice to get away but it will always be nice to come back home. There is great comfort in being around our own things, in our own bed, but sometimes you just need to get away from them for a while to fully appreciate them.
If you are planning your winter getaway for you or the whole family, browse our Bald Head Island vacation rentals. We have cottages and homes to accommodate a small group to a big event. There are plenty of activities for everyone, kid-friendly events, fishing, shopping, historical sights, and plenty of water fun. Or, if you prefer, you can leave the schedule open, relax and do plenty of nothing at all. Sometimes, that’s just what we need.
