A long walk in a dense forest or jungle could be just what the doctor ordered, say Canadian psychologists writing for LuminoHealth.com. Every minute you spend outside amid Mother Nature’s natural wonders may be all it takes to restore your spirit and emotional balance. In fact, a study of two groups proved that a 90-minute walk through any outdoor environment can lower levels of negative feelings, improve mood and lower anxiety. Can you imagine what a restorative vacation within a lush jungle environment could do for your sense of wellbeing having come through COVID-19? After all, you deserve an escape! And where to go for the getaway of your dreams? No other than Belize, where jungle lodges reign supreme in its eco-landscape.
