In today’s busy world of fast-paced technology and the challenge of balancing the stresses of life, sometimes we find ourselves on a path that may limit our ability to be happy. However, some people seem to be able to maintain their own happiness despite these challenges. What’s the secret?
For many people, proper exercise and nutrition supports good health and adds to one’s feelings of happiness. Others find that having a connection to nature can improve feelings of well-being. There is no question that enough exposure to sunshine is important for the production of vitamin D, which is necessary for a healthy immune system.
Most people can agree that bodies of water like lakes, rivers, or oceans evoke feelings of calmness and relaxation, and also help to relieve stress.
In our busy lives, finding mutually agreeable times to connect with friends and family, in a meaningful way, can be terribly frustrating as everyone must juggle their own commitments of work, family, home, etc. Most people would agree that sharing fun activities with those you care about, strengthens bonds and promotes feelings of happiness.
The good news is that a whitewater rafting trip in Colorado may be the answer! There are very few activities that incorporate all of the things previously discussed. However, whitewater rafting allows people of all ages and abilities to share excitement, exercise, an appreciation of beautiful landscapes, the soothing sound and feeling of floating on a river, and spending meaningful time together without the distractions that modern technology affords us.
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
– Frank Lloyd Wright
