Forest bathing in the Arenal Volcano

04Jul

We all know that getting out in nature and breathing in the scent of fresh air is good for us, and yet so many of us put off this vital activity in favour of work or screen time. This is where forest bathing steps in to offer us an alternative, immersive experience that helps us unwind from the stresses of daily life while reconnecting with nature.

If you experience feelings of stress, anxiety or being overwhelmed, consider trying forest bathing. Forest bathing can be as simple as taking 10 minutes out of your day to focus on nothing other than nature or can be a fully immersive 2-3-hour experience which allows you to totally switch off from urban life and discover the magic of the natural world. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your mood improves and how much easier it is to focus on simplicity and gratitude when you’re not distracted by the buzz of daily life.

WHAT IS FOREST BATHING?

Forest bathing, also known as The Japanese Art Of Shinrin Yoku, is essentially dedicating time spent outdoors in a calm, forest environment to help connect with both nature and yourself through the use of your five senses. Forest bathing is a therapeutic, immersive, wellbeing activity that aims to bring peace and connection while also having long-term benefits for your mental and physical health.

WHY IS COSTA RICA A SPECIAL PLACE TO BEGIN THE PRACTICE OF FOREST BATHING?

Costa Rica accounts for only 0.03 percent of the earth’s surface (has only 51.100km2). However it contains nearly 6 percent of the world’s biodiversity. Its natural wealth, both in species and ecosystems, is partly explained by its geographical position.

The geographical position, surrounded by its two coasts with a mountainous system, provides numerous and varied microclimates that give rise to this natural wealth, both in species and in ecosystems. About 500,000 species inhabit this small territory and represent about 4% of the total estimated species worldwide.

So, can you image how spectacular could be practice a forest bathing walk while you visiting Costa Rica? An amazing experience!

Prepare your senses!

HOW DO YOU TAKE A FOREST BATH?

Rather than simply taking a walk in the woods, forest bathing is about having a deeper sensory experience through mindfulness and meditation techniques. While anyone can easily try forest bathing themselves, it can be beneficial to join a dedicated group activity the first time you try it so that you can fully immerse yourself in the practice, receiving professional guidance along the way. This will allow you to learn the best techniques to quiet the chatter in your mind and to open your senses in a new way which will allow you to experience the forest on a deeper level.

Forest bathing is not about how far you walk or how much you learn (intellectually) about the forest, but rather about the connection you have to nature and the peace and stillness you can find in the moment.

If you do want to try forest bathing yourself, take yourself off into the woods, finding a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. The key is to go slow. Rather than covering a great distance, focus on a small section of forest, taking time to feel, see and experience each element of nature, stopping regularly to simply sit and take it all in.

Instead of thinking about how beautiful things are, try to go one step further and feel the beauty of light, textures and sensations. This is best experienced when you try to use all of your senses; spending time looking around, breathing in the scent of the forest and listening out for sounds of birds and wildlife as well as the delicate noises of leaves falling or twigs underfoot. If you feel comfortable, consider taking off your shoes; feeling the moisture and texture of soil beneath your feet, or touching and hugging leaves, trees and branches.

WHY FOREST BATHING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

woman walking in the forest for health benefits

Forest bathing is thought to have many health benefits including:

  • Lowering cortisol levels, blood pressure and heart rate
  •  Boosting our immune systems.
  • Increases parasympathetic nerve activity, the signifier of a relaxed biological system and a general sense of calm.

All the world need ‘green care’ to support those suffering from mental ill-health after Covid-19. Not only do forest bathing and other green experiences allow you to reap the benefits of being out in nature, but it also allows you to improve your mindfulness techniques which will come in handy even when sitting at your desk!

Conozca los beneficios de la adrenalina para su salud

16Dec

Posiblemente, más de una vez te hayas preguntado cuál es el proceso químico o físico que se produce en tu cuerpo en situaciones de alerta o emergencia. Los síntomas son fácilmente identificables: notas cómo tus músculos se tensan, tu corazón empieza a latir más rápido, el vello se pone de punta y comienzas a respirar de forma entrecortada. Estas sensaciones son causadas por los efectos de la adrenalina, una hormona segregada por tu propio cuerpo que te prepara para situaciones de alerta. A continuación te contamos más acerca de su funcionamiento.

¿Qué es la adrenalina?

Las emociones que sentimos en nuestro día a día tienen un componente biológico. En efecto, ante los estímulos externos o los acontecimientos que nos rodean, nuestro organismo segrega hormonas que provocan distintas reacciones que expresamos como una emoción. Entre estas hormonas se encuentra la famosa adrenalina.
La adrenalina, llamada epinefrina en su forma sintética, es una hormona neurotransmisora que pertenece al grupo de las catecolaminas, junto con la dopamina y la noradrenalina. La adrenalina es segregada por las glándulas suprarrenales ante situaciones de peligro o alerta. Por ello puede decirse que es la hormona de la acción.
Entre las situaciones cotidianas que nos hacen segregar adrenalina, se encuentran momentos de acción como la práctica de deporte, especialmente si se trata de deportes de riesgo, o momentos de alerta como los que se dan en una situación de ataque o cuando nos tenemos que mantener despiertos para hacer un esfuerzo extra en el trabajo o los estudios.
La adrenalina es también la responsable de la forma de reaccionar del cuerpo ante momentos inolvidables, como cuando sentimos esas «mariposas» en el estómago al ver a la persona de la que estamos enamorados. En efecto, ese aceleramiento es causado por la secreción de esta hormona.

¿Cómo actúa la adrenalina en nuestro cuerpo?

– El corazón bombea más sangre a todo el cuerpo, debido al aumento del ritmo cardíaco.
– Se dilatan las pupilas, una respuesta natural para tener mejor visión en situaciones de alerta.
– Aumenta la glucosa en la sangre de los músculos y el hígado, para que el cuerpo produzca más energía.
– Con alta concentración de adrenalina, la presión arterial aumenta, y en cantidades bajas, disminuye.
Cuando la adrenalina estimula el cerebro se segrega dopamina, conocida como la hormona del bienestar. Esta es la razón principal por la cual muchas personas encuentran adictivo el hecho de liberar adrenalina, necesitando constantemente emociones fuertes.

¿Sabías que segregar adrenalina es beneficioso para tu salud?

Como ves, la descarga de adrenalina se da en múltiples situaciones de la vida cotidiana y provoca grandes efectos en nuestro organismo. Siempre que estas situaciones de miedo y riesgo estén bajo control y se desarrollen de forma segura, podemos obtener grandes beneficios de la adrenalina.
En cuanto a sus efectos beneficiosos a nivel físico, hay que decir que la mayor parte de las situaciones en las que se libera adrenalina están ligadas a la práctica de ejercicio, por ejemplo una actividad deportiva. Aunque también hay otras actividades como las cabalgatas o actividades de Eco aventura que te aportarían ese «subidón» tan característico. Todos los deportes tienen en común los grandes beneficios que producen a nivel físico, por lo cual, al buscar la sensación que te da la adrenalina te beneficiarás también de las ventajas de la actividad física.
Es a nivel psicológico donde la secreción de adrenalina nos aporta más beneficios, debido a que está ligada a nuestro sistema sensorial. Como todos sabemos, no hay nada como experimentar ese «subidón» de adrenalina para sentirnos vivos y mantener el espíritu joven. Al aportarnos esa sensación de bienestar y energía se produce un aumento de la felicidad a nivel general. Por ello se suele decir que la adrenalina es una droga natural, produciendo adicción.
Asimismo, al transmitir sensaciones que se salen de lo común, mucha gente busca constantemente la oportunidad de volver a sentir esa subida de energía, lo cual lleva a la búsqueda de nuevas experiencias y lugares que nos hagan sentir esa sensación. Por supuesto, siempre teniendo en cuenta la seguridad y no tomar riesgos que comporten un peligro real. Esta búsqueda de experiencias te llevará a conocer nuevos lugares, nuevas personas con las que compartir tus sensaciones y te mantendrá activo, en definitiva, ¡te hará sentir vivo!
Como puedes ver, la secreción de adrenalina es absolutamente necesaria para nuestra salud y felicidad, ya que es la responsable de las sensaciones causadas por esas experiencias inolvidables. Por ello, es aconsejable salir periódicamente de la rutina y buscar mediante actividades esa dosis de adrenalina.

¿Cómo podemos disfrutar de nuestra dosis de adrenalina?

Entre las formas más divertidas de disfrutar de los beneficios de la adrenalina, se encuentran los deportes extremos. Muchas de estas actividades se practican además en plena naturaleza. Entre ellas, algunas de las más divertidas y que podrás explorar Durante tu visita a Montaña de Fuego Mountain Resort&Spa son el canopy, rappel, tubing o aventurarte en un tour de ATV disfrutando los incurables paisajes del Volcán Arenal.
Además de la práctica deportiva, existen otras formas de buscar alguna emoción que nos haga escapar de la rutina. Así, es evidente la relación entre un parque de atracciones y la adrenalina.

La Fortuna waterfall, adventure in Costa Rica

29Apr

LA FORTUNA RIVER WATERFALL

 

The Fortuna River Waterfall is a natural area managed sustainably by Integral Development Association of La Fortuna (ADIFORT), a non-profit organization founded since August 31, 1969, having as its main objective to ensure the well-being and growth of La Fortuna community, through the work execution of road infrastructure, environment, education, promotion of sport and culture, community beautification and strengthening of public safety; projects that are possible to run thanks to funds raised by the visit of each tourist to this natural space.

The Fortuna River waterfall is located in a biological reserve with an area of 210 acres of transition premontane tropical wet forest, part of the Arenal Volcano National Park and is located at 520 meters over the sea level, where there are sources of our mountains and the waters of the Fortuna River. Within this sector is the Cerro de los Perdidos, Placas de Mayo and Cerro Chato, which are based on rocky foundations of great geological value, causing in turn a lush and scenic beauty.

To observe this splendid 70 meters high waterfall, visitors must pass a path of approximately 530 steps, which offers greater security to its passage and comfortable areas for rest and hydration through a forest with native trees of the area. Once in front of the waterfall, you will find a spacious and comfortable vantage point from which you can freeze your memories using unique and previously unpublished photographs, and finally take a refreshing swim in the clear waters of the Fortuna River
