We’ve discussed before how important it can be to stay fit and healthy while traveling, but there’s another aspect of health that should be considered: is it possible to travel your way to better health, rather than just maintaining the health that you have?
It’s a tempting idea; a holiday that rejuvenates and improves you on a core level, and from which you return with more benefits than happy memories and a full Instagram feed. If you’re looking for a vacation that can give your health a boost, then you’re definitely going to want to consider these options…

It has long been known that being among nature has an incredibly positive impact on the human mind and body. If you decide to head out of the cities and into the wilderness for a vacation, you can look forward to a mental health boost, as well as improved lung health courtesy of the reduction in exposure to air pollution.
