The Alpine Lifestyle: Embracing Nature and Wellness
It’s no great secret that the outdoors is one of Mother Nature’s best medicines, so it stands to reason that the Alpine lifestyle is a pretty healthy one. It’s a region that calls out to you to get up, get out and enjoy an active lifestyle in some of the greatest scenery in the world.
And that evidence isn’t just anecdotal. There’s evidence that getting outside is beneficial for mental health conditions like anxiety and depression; exposure to sunlight can keep our circadian rhythms on track to improve sleep quality and trees and plants release phytoncides which have many benefits to the human body. Simply looking at mountains and meadow flowers can have a beneficial impact on our mental health, while spending time the higher altitude of the mountains can also induce a sense of euphoria that lasts for weeks.
More than that, the Alpine lifestyle is a healthy one, with plenty of opportunities to stay fit and active in whatever way suits us best. Even hiking and walking can elevate the heart rate enough to provide significant health benefits, while more extreme sports like climbing and mountain biking will also help to build all-important muscle mass.
Of course, not everything that’s good about spending time in the Alps can be quantified - sometimes what’s making us feel healthy and happy is the quality time spent with friends and family on a much-needed break.
That’s why we believe that investing in property in the Alps can be the ultimate investment in your own health and wellbeing. By investing in a holiday let or ski chalet, you’re giving yourself and your family the opportunity to spend more time in a beautiful part of the world that has a positive impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.
