The city has many to offer and yet we sometimes find ourselves with the need to escape from it. Where do you go when you need to break from the hectic city life? Going to the countryside could be the breath of fresh air that you need both literally and figuratively.
Why You Should Visit The Countryside
Out of the many reasons why you should spend your time in the countryside, here are some of the top ones:
Clean and Fresh Air
Yes, this is what lungs crave. Strolling on the countryside and just breathe in the air gives your lungs the much-needed break from the car exhaust fumes, dust, and all kinds of allergens the city is abundant of. With so many trees producing Oxygen, that’s a given.
The city life tends to be fast-paced. Everyone’s in a hurry and everything has a deadline. Go to the countryside and things slow down on their own. People seem to enjoy their life with less emphasis on when to get there and more on how.
Sure, the city has its fair share of awe-inspiring feats of architecture, but the countryside can top them effortlessly. Rows of pine trees by the creek is a sight to behold. Not to mention the sunrises and sunsets. Those two natural phenomena look better in the countries too.
The countryside has a certain ambiance that radiates… freshness, if you can call it that. Add tranquility and peace of mind into the mix and you’ll get that perfect ambiance for relieving the stacked up stress you picked up in the city.
Imagine renting a rustic cabin in or near the woods, just you and your loved ones. No nosy neighbors and no grandmas on the balcony judging you as you walk past by. It’s just you and the ones that matter to you spending quality time together.
OK, those are the top reasons why you should go visit the countryside. Remember, you don’t need to spend a whole day to unwind in the countryside if you don’t have that much free time. An hour and two can give you plenty if you know where to look. Preparation is key here.
If you wish to spend your time enjoying amazing landscape then find out where they are and how to get there as fast as possible. Fire up Google Map and explore the best routes before you hit the road.
Want to go hiking? Be sure to ask around in local forums for the dos and don’ts. Some trails are made for the pros while others are friendlier for people of different physical strength. The locals also know better about the dangerous animals and plants. Play it safe.
By the way, you can still enjoy the ambiance of the countryside when you’re in the office, home, or when you’re stuck in a Monday morning traffic jam. Play some soothing countryside ambient music and enjoy the relaxing vibe to brush off some of that stress.
