A trip to the mountains is just what the doctor ordered! Maybe not officially with a sick note, but there is actual data and science that backs up why traveling to the mountains is good for your health. If you have been thinking that an ultimate get away is needed, considered packing up and renting one of our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals. And if you find yourself trying to justify the decision, here are some healthy reasons why you need this vaca!
- Altitude isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, some folks get altitude sickness which can include head aches, dizziness, bloody nose and more. BUT! It also has some health benefits too. While we are not medical professionals, some studies have suggested that a trip to the mountains for less than one week can spike weight loss. Apparently, high altitude can decrease your appetite and make you feel full quicker. Of course, mountains in general promote a more active lifestyle, but hey-we’ll take it. Altitude can also, allegedly (once again, we are not doctors), lower your risks of cardiovascular diseases. When you reduce oxygen, it helps create new pathways for blood vessels for oxygen to flow. You also have a lower risk of dying from ischemic heart disease. If you are looking for a healthy heart, scientific evidence shows that life at high altitudes can lead to just that. We have plenty of vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe that are conveniently located close to plenty of outdoor activities, promoting that healthy lifestyle.
- Breathe easy. Fresh air is free of gasses and air pollution, which allows your lungs to breathe easier. The fresh air is said to help respiratory issues and help breathing be easier for those with asthma as well. Also, the scent of pine is said to decrease depression, stress and hostility. So come stay at one of our vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe and take a deep breath of that fresh mountain air!
- Beautiful scenery is great for finding peace. Clearly, we know Lake Tahoe is beautiful, because if it wasn’t, millions of people wouldn’t visit each year. Re-discovering the beauty of nature has been a way for people to find peace throughout history. The different sounds, smells and sights trigger the brain differently than a city does. It also teaches you just how crucial it is to slow down sometimes. If you are looking for a space surrounded by no shortage of scenery, we have several South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals that have lake views, mountain views and forest views.
- Trips to the mountains are great for relationships. Not only is it a great way to bond with your family members and friends, but trying new activities and getting outside and letting the endorphins flow is a great way to create new memories, laugh and overcoming obstacles with one another. You can leave South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals feeling like you can take on anything!
