Minimalist life traveling 

Going on holiday is, for the most part, meant to be relaxing, giving yourself the time to stop, slow down and literally bask in the moment. This is not to say that it won’t be filled with thrills (or even a snafu here or there,) because that always seems to happen, no matter how well we think we’ve planned. It is tempting to cram every second with activities (if that’s your style) but never forget to take a bit of time, breathe in, kick your feet up and – literally – do nothing. Have you thought about taking a day off to just “be”? It has its benefits, especially as a mature traveler?

Slow holidays allow you to immerse yourself in the present moment and fully appreciate your surroundings. By slowing down, you can engage in activities that promote relaxation, such as leisurely walks, meditation, or simply taking the time to appreciate the beauty of nature. This mindful approach to travel can help reduce stress and rejuvenate your mind and body.

Slowing down also provide opportunities to connect with local communities and gain a deeper understanding of their culture, traditions, and way of life. By spending more time in a particular destination, you can engage in local activities, interact with residents, try regional cuisine, and participate in cultural events. This enhances your travel experience and allows for more authentic and meaningful connections.

It doesn’t take a scientist to know that slowing down a wee bit doesn’t ruin your holiday, it enhances it Watch the video below where mature traveler Connie Riet shows you how its done.
