1. Peace and Quiet
Starting your day minus the sound of traffic and the stress of work, starting your day in the berg, amongst the fresh air, wildlife, mountains and natural light is really good for the soul and your sleep cycle. But that’s not all, being outdoors balances your body’s melatonin and cortisol levels too. Researchers from the University of Michigan recently did an experiment on some stressed people and tested them after the effects of an outdoor based holiday. The effects of the trip improved psychological well-being, social functioning, and life outlook, these effects lasted for up to a month after their camping excursion. You do not get much more peaceful than the Drakensberg Mountain Retreat, book with us online now.
