HEALTH BENEFITS OF A NIAGARA FALLS WALKING TOUR
It’s good to feel small.
It’s not only an enjoyable experience, but it also comes with tangible benefits to our emotional and physical health, especially for seniors!
An article on BBC.com titled “The Upsides of Feeling Small” gets into the details, but the take away is: feeling awe-inspired = improved mental health.
Standing near the immensity of Niagara Falls can feel overwhelming, but that’s exactly the point.
We have heard stories of people feeling relaxed and at peace following one of our Niagara Falls tours, often days or even weeks afterwards.
Is it just the positive benefits of being so close to a massive force of nature?
We feel there’s more to it.
WALKING IS ONE OF THE BEST FORMS OF PHYSICAL EXERCISE
Walking has been proven to:
- Improve blood flow (1)
- Lower blood pressure (2)
- Boost energy levels (3)
- Improve immune system (4)
- Help you sleep better (5)
The best part? It’s a moderate form of exercise that the vast majority of us are plenty capable of doing.
Join us for a Niagara Falls walking tour where you’ll not only enjoy multiple top attractions but we’ll throw in all of these health benefits at no extra charge! ;)
GO AT A SLOWER PACE = CALM YOUR MIND
Taking time off work. Unplugging. Mindful breathing. Down-sizing.
Slowing down comes in many different forms and one way you can practice slowing down is to choose a walking tour.
With a walking tour not only do you get the amazing Niagara Falls attractions, you get the opportunity to slow things down which helps you get more out of the experience.
The ability to absorb and mentally digest the experience is what makes a walking tour the best way to tour Niagara Falls.
Besides, think of how much more you will be able to take in during your Niagara Falls tour while you stroll past places like Queen Victoria Park, the Nikola Tesla statue and Clifton Hill instead of driving by in a crowded bus with an obstructed view.
SPENDING TIME WITH LIKE MINDED TRAVELERS
Have you noticed how much your mood improves after spending quality time with people you enjoy in person?
There may not be a better way to feel connected than to spend a few hours with others who share your same interests.
Let’s face it, there’s no question that many of us have felt more disconnected and flat out lonely over the last few years.
Sharing a memorable experience with like minded travelers is pure goodness for the soul.
