It is always better to choose quiet, small places surrounded by nature over big cities polluted with toxins. Fresh and clean mountain air does wonders to an organism that is used to living in a big city. The less traffic and factories around, the better. National parks, ethnic villages and mountains are the perfect places for relaxation and rehabilitation.

You can choose from all sorts of different activities such as hiking, scuba diving, cycling, mountaineering, kayaking, surfing, skiing, and even enjoying astronomy and working on a farm. These are all activities that will bond you with nature and make you want to feel like that way every single day.
Even if you don’t have everything organized, you can arrange it for yourself. No matter what kind of vacation you are going to, set aside 45 minutes to an hour for yourself every day and go cycling, running or whatever the place is offering. Just have a physical activity.
As we said, there are all sorts of different and strange food all over the world and you would want to inform yourself about it before you even choose a place for vacation. We are tucked in our worlds so much that some people may have very bad experience with local food of some parts of the world. In order to avoid this talk to your doctor and find out is your organism intolerant for something. All that being said, never avoid to try something new and healthy, if you are able to.
When you are on a vacation, tend to stay outside as much as you can and make use of every moment. Don’t choose a place with an air-condition, television, hotel bar or wi-fi, rather go as close to nature as possible.
