How about leaving the house for a while and exploring beautiful world trails that you can walk right now? How; The answer is: Virtually!
Within a few weeks, the terms shelter, self-isolation, and quarantine became keywords, defining the new reality of many people: staying home. Hours on Zoom and Skype may have replaced friend walks, but when you start to feel at home more like a cell and less like a shelter, maybe it’s time to take a break.
Strolling in parks, beaches, groves and much more may not be allowed yet, so the following virtual hiking trails can offer a mental getaway. In addition, there are studies that show that even displaying an image of a tree can cause calm, and in today’s world, an additional sense of calm is needed.
The virtual trails shown in the video below will fill you with images of new landscapes, abundant flora and fresh landscapes that evoke tranquility while transporting you around the world. You can enjoy the view from the gym bike or the treadmill in your home, or relax on your couch and let yourself be transported to the mountains of Switzerland or the rugged coast of Oregon.
