We’re always hearing how important it is to ‘switch off’ every now and again. But modern urban life has a way of ensuring we’re always ‘on’, even when we try not to be.
While things like meditation, morning yoga, or a sneaky afternoon nap might sound tempting, when work and/or the family just never seem to leave you alone, where’s the time? Where’s the space?
That’s where a remote break in nature comes into its own. Surrounded by joyous birdsong, whispering leaves, and abundant wildlife, you’ve got no choice but to just be.
Meditation, morning yoga, and lazy afternoon naps suddenly become the most natural ways to while away some time. Or how about grabbing a sketchpad or notebook, and re-discovering your creative spirit?
You might even find yourself just sitting back and appreciating nature’s natural rhythms… the glorious rising and setting of the sun, or the twinkle of that first star in the evening sky.
Not to mention taking your first coffee of the day outside and luxuriating in the simple, beautiful fact that you get to take your sweet time over enjoying it.
Everyone deserves some peaceful time to wind down and get lost in nature. We’ve picked each and every one of these remote stays to help you do just that.
