It’s a new year and the perfect time for a new you. One of the best things about living in Florida is that we have a wealth of nature right in our own backyard. And while there’s a lot of hustle and bustle that goes with daily life, there’s also a lot of enjoyment to be had. If you’ve been meaning to turn a new leaf and explore some new worlds, then getting on a kayak with some friends or a guided tour might be one of the most therapeutic things you do in 2023.
Communion with Nature
While many of us enjoy the advantages of the modern world, nature provides beauty and an atmosphere that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else. Kayaking provides you with the chance to get up close and personal with plants and wildlife in a way you’ve never done before.
Spending a few hours on a kayak can burn upwards of 2,000 calories! And unlike being confined in a gym on a treadmill, kayaking allows you to get plenty of exercise while being out in nature and partake in an experience that’s pure enjoyment.
Stress-Relief and Relaxation
Psychologists have long held the belief that people are products of their environment. Many of the factors that contribute to the stress of daily life are right under our noses. They’re things that we come across every day, and they can wear on us over time. By getting on a kayak and placing yourself in a completely different environment, you’ll be able to let go of some of the frustrations that accumulate during the week. Forget about the 9 to 5 for a few hours and relish the environment you’re in—it might be the best therapy you ever sign up for.
No Experience Necessary
One of the great things about kayaking is that there are opportunities for people from all walks of life and levels of experience. Whether you want to brave the elements yourself or go on a guided tour with someone well-acquainted with the area, you can easily obtain an experience with memories that last a lifetime.
