Improve Your Health: Vacation in Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead Vacation rental Health

Lake Arrowhead Health BenefitsVacationing in the Lake Arrowhead mountains provides not only a much-needed respite from the heat in the valleys below, but a multitude of other health-related benefits.

“The lake and the mountains have become my landscape, my real world.”

~Georges Simenon

Before you book that beach vacay, consider heading to the hills:

  1. The color green, in plentiful supply due to our trees and ample mountain foliage, is known to be restful to the eyes, and calming for the mind. You’ve probably heard that looking at something green is helpful for tired eyes. Imagine what a mountain vacation does for strained eyes and frazzled nerves.Lake Arrowhead Pine Health
  2. In addition to being restful and calming, nature is rejuvenating for both the body and soul. Whether you’re soaking in the beauty of Lake Arrowhead from the comfort of your Lake Arrowhead rental property’s deck, or meandering along a nearby forest trail, the sights and sounds of nature are a soothing balm to a work-weary soul. A Japanese studyon the health benefits of shinrin-yoku (forest-air bathing, walking) revealed that “forest environments are advantageous with respect to acute emotions, especially among those experiencing chronic stress. Accordingly, shinrin-yoku may be employed as a stress reduction method, and forest environments can be viewed as therapeutic landscapes.”

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

  1. High altitudes have been shown to potentially assist with weight loss. According to a studyof 20 obese males, conducted by a team fromLudwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany, “Levels of the hormone leptin, which suppresses appetite, rose during their [the subjects’] week at high altitude, while the hunger hormone grehlin was unchanged, and this meant they were less hungry during their stay. Their metabolic rate was also higher at altitude, which meant they burned more calories. And this, combined with the lower calorie intake, caused weight loss.”Weight Loss Health Lake Arrowhead

Hiking Health Lake ArrowheadAt over 5000’ elevation, Lake Arrowhead is a perfect place for revving up the old metabolism, assuming you can say “no” to the haystacks at Jensen’s Market.

“Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery.” – John Ruskin

The benefits of crisp, clean mountain air extend beyond the relief your grateful lungs receive; Lake Arrowhead’s forests are filled with pine and cedar trees, both of which have healing properties. The scent of pine or cedar can eliminate depression and lower stress. Additionally, the aroma of cedar is effective in helping with Mountain Air Health Lake Arrowheadinsomnia.
