1. Get off the grid

Pick a spot in nature that is off the beaten path, a place where you aren’t likely to see a lot of other people. These types of destinations are everywhere in the Florida Wildlife Corridor! Whether you find a quiet corner of Everglades National Park or a peaceful stretch of the Kissimmee River, you can’t go wrong.

2. Pick your activity

Choose an outdoor adventure that matches your interest so that you can focus less on the activity and more on relaxation. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Grab your fishing rod and cast a line over the lake
  • Take a leisurely walk
  • Pack a picnic to enjoy at the park
  • Spend a day on the beach, listening to the soothing sound of waves
  • String your hammock and relax into a breezy afternoon

3. Take deep breaths

No matter what you choose to do or where you choose to do it, take a few moments to slow down and sit in stillness, taking deep breaths and listening to the sounds of nature around you. Allow nature’s tranquility to calm your mind and rejuvenate your spirit. 

Did you know that walking leisurely through a forest, absorbing the sights, sounds, and scents of the woodlands, has been proven to reduce stress, boost your mood, and enhance your overall well-being?
