The Health Benefits of a Tree Top Adventure

If you’re booking a tree top adventure at Empower Adventures Tampa Bay, you’re not just going to be getting a unique, exciting experience. You’ll also be getting a few health benefits, too. You might be surprised to find out what a zipline adventure can do for both your body and your mind. We look at a few examples in our blog.

Fresh Air and Sunshine

From childhood, we’re all told to get out in the fresh air and the sunshine, and how good it is for our health. The reason we hear this so often, and that it’s something that continues from one generation to the next, is simply because it’s true.

During your tree top adventure, you’ll be up among the trees, taking in the clean, fresh air from the wilds of Tampa Bay. Make sure to take a moment to really appreciate, the lush, full scent of the surrounding canopy. Not only that, but getting out in the sun can do wonders for your body.

Vitamin D is an essential ingredient to feeling and looking great, and the best way to get it is being out in the sunlight. It’s become common knowledge that a lack of sun in the colder seasons negatively affects our mood, a problem that even earned its own name in Seasonal Affective Disorder (appropriately shortened to SAD).

If this alone doesn’t show how beneficial a tree top adventure in the Florida sunshine can be, we don’t know what will.

Reducing Stress

Maybe this seems counterintuitive, especially if you’re booking your first tree top adventure and finding yourself a little nervous, but ziplining can actually help to reduce overall stress. It might be nerve-wracking when you first get up into the canopy, but the adrenaline rush of zipping between the trees is like nothing else.

Once the experience is over, you’ll very likely find yourself still riding high on the endorphins. This is a positive feeling that can last a long time, making it easier to relax. Long-term effects of reducing stress can have health benefits like reducing blood pressure. Combine the adrenaline with the natural beauty surrounding you during your experience, and you have the perfect combination for feeling great.

Increasing Your Self-Confidence

On to more mindful matters – a tree top adventure with Empower can greatly increase your self-confidence. If you’re a first timer, this benefit is going to be especially significant. Trying something new, especially if it scares you a little, is a great way to challenge yourself. Overcoming a personal challenge and doing something new will remind you of what you’re capable of – especially if you’re taking part with friends, family or co-workers.

Increasing someone’s self-confidence is no mean feat, and the lasting benefits of it are immense. Feeling good about yourself and what you know you can do is priceless, and that’s exactly why we called ourselves “Empower” Adventures.
