Ziplining can be a fun and adventurous activity for all ages. What many people don’t realize is there a great health benefits to getting outside and taking a zipline tour. Here are some great health reasons to schedule your next zipline adventure:
Fresh Air/Nature: Getting outside is good for both the body and the mind. Open air can cleanse toxins from the lungs while experiencing nature can bring peace to the body. Fresh air is also known to boost the immune system which aids in preventing illnesses.
Burns Calories: Believe it or not, ziplining can burn quite a bit of calories even with the zipline cables doing most of the work. Ziplining requires climbing, hiking, and utilizing your arms to break. Not only this, but your increased heart rate requires your body to work harder and in turn burns fat quicker.
Self-Esteem Boost: With heights being one of the top fears in the world, it can feel like quite an accomplishment to conquer a zipline course. Being able to fight ones fear of heights can be a great self-esteem boost which is very beneficial to one’s health.
Lowers Blood Pressure: The combination of being outside, being active, and experiencing an adrenaline rush is great for your heart. Decreasing your blood pressure reduces your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Reduces Stress: With breath taking scenery and the sense of adventure ziplining brings, you won’t have time to worry about the stressors back home. Enjoying nature may also help you to put a new perspective on things which can greatly reduce stress.
