Armchair travel: in the mountains

Posted by Hannah Faulder on 21 April 2020

Not only are mountains beautiful to look at, but they can also bring positivity to different aspects of a person's life. Because of this, there are many reasons why you may want to plan your 2021 getaway to the mountains.

Mountains offer us a sense of inner peace, relaxation, and calmness. As a result, individuals suffering from stress or anxiety typically feel better when they are surrounded by the sights and sounds of the mountains. Furthermore, mountain air is also filled with beneficialsecondary metabolites that come from the abundance of plants and trees. These secondary metabolites provide plants with their distinct aromas while also providing a range of health benefits to humans. For example, lavender, commonly found at the tops of mountains, has been shown to promote good sleep.  

Today we are transporting ourselves to these properties located in the mountains - the perfect way to ease the mind and heal the soul...
