“God made the country, and man made the town,” said William Cowper once.
Wise words! Countryside is that one destination that affects one’s lifestyle in numerous ways. Be it physical or mental, open fields and away from all the chaos of the city works its magic on everyone in its own way.
So, here are a few reasons why one should prefer countryside visits (or countryside living)
There is nothing more refreshing than fresh air. With considerably less pollutants, stepping out of the house and breathing in some nature’s goodness is the best experience ever.
There is no traffic! And hence there is no pollution, no blaring honks and the agony of being stuck in a stand-still traffic. Countryside has nothing but peace to offer. If you are someone who is looking for a break to clear things off your mind, countryside is the best choice.
Play area for kids
Kids might not be very happy with the idea of relocating to a far off place away from their friends but visiting countryside places once in a while teaches them to appreciate the nature and calmness which comes along. They would also enjoy playing outdoors for a change.
Countryside is a haven for people who love outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, climbing, bike riding and many more. All you have to do is step out of your house and you are invited by the nature’s trails.
A few studies also state that living in a country side makes you feel good about yourself. And also, women living in the country are less prone to premature labour than women living in the cities.
