The Importance of Slowing Down – Escaping City Life

Back to the list

In the run up to Christmas it can be all too easy to get caught up in the routines of day to day life – especially for those who live in cities. It is important for your overall well-being to slow down every once in a while and Cornwall is the perfect destination to do just that. Here are 4 reasons why taking a break from the city can improve your quality of life.

Quality time with those you love (yes, that includes yourself)

Whether you want to embark on a spot of solo travelling (for ideas and inspiration see our previous blog), a getaway with your other half, or a proper family holiday, it is important to take time out of your busy schedule to spend quality time with the people that really matter. 

Gain some perspective

Leaving high pressure environments for just a few days allows you to step back from your routine, evaluate your decisions and lifestyle, and spend some time considering what really matters the most.

Real chance to relax

Life in the cities is usually lived at 100mph. Immediate access, fast career progression, quick deadlines, rushing from place to place. Time to slow down often isn’t slotted into schedules so you need to make an effort to take yourself away every now and then. Enjoy some me time at The Clearing Spa with a massage, facial, or spa day, or simply explore the beautiful countryside that surrounds our estate.

Get back in touch with nature

It is no secret that Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places in the UK. With green policies throughout the county, better quality of air, and a vast array of stunning countryside, you can’t get much closer to nature than coming down here. Nearby our 43 acre estate you will find The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan – both fantastic opportunities  to immerse yourself in the tropical landscapes and incredible wildlife of Cornwall.

So take a break from city life and escape to a quieter, slower pace of life and breathe in the fresh, crisp Cornish countryside air. We have a series of offers available from mini breaks and quiet nights in to spa days and nature filled getaways with friends.

Take a step back from city life and book some ‘me time’ in your calendar.
