Going on a road trip or day trips in a Kombi van is a great way to unwind and spend time outdoors. When life can be fast-paced, hitting the road is perfect for slowing down and boosting your health and well-being. Make the most of your time away from the hustle and bustle of normal life with some of these rejuvenating ideas:
Switch your phone off
Smartphones are no doubt essential for travel because of their communication and navigational purposes. However, you should also set aside a time where you can switch them off or turn them offline so you can embrace the adventures ahead of you. One of the benefits of disconnecting is that you get to appreciate the things around you! It also boosts your well-being as you can recharge mentally and emotionally by being removed from the distractions and stresses of daily life, let alone being consumed by social media.
Sleep with the blinds open
Sleep with your blinds open so that you can wake up to a natural alarm clock. Waking up like this just screams road tripping and gets you pumped for another day of adventure. On top of that, sleeping with the blinds open has many health benefits too: it regulates your circadian rhythm, improves your mood and alleviates stress.
In normal circumstances, meditation grounds you and allows you to be present in the moment. But we think that meditation on a road trip, surrounded by natural beauty, takes these feelings of gratitude, calmness and presence to the next level. One of the best types of meditations to practise outside is a sensory meditation as these allow you to tap into the stimuli you can see, touch, hear, smell and taste around you. All you need is 10 minutes a day to start your day off perfectly.
If you’re road tripping by the beach or a natural pool, we could not recommend a morning dip enough! Kick start your day by plunging into some cold water – we guarantee it will make you feel more energised and focused for the rest of the day. What’s best is that a morning swim will also boost your mood and create a positive impact on your mental health.
If you have some downtime, why not spend it doing yoga, to help release any tension that could be brought on by long periods of driving? Yoga also improves our blood circulation, boosts our immune system and gets rid of the toxic waste in our bodies. Make sure to pack a yoga mat so you can practise anywhere, anytime. There is simply nothing better than practising yoga in nature and truly connecting to the earth.
