It’s always nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Living in Sydney, it’s quite hard to do that most of the time with constant beeping cars, sirens, people about and so much life busily happening all around us. Sometimes time out is just what we need and a new hobby can be found which can benefit your mind, body and soul.
If you are looking to head away for a few days or even just the weekend, why not look into visiting somewhere peaceful and new with an activity or two, canoeing for example is an activity which is easy for everyone, enjoyable and beneficial to your own well-being.
A lot of us don’t click to the fact that being out in the water paddling a canoe is an actual form of exercise and so relaxing that we can easily forget that it actually is. There’s just something about being with nature and taking in all the natural environment of the birds, trees and water while moving along in a canoe on your own, with a partner or even a group.
Canoeing is a low impact form of exercise known to increase your aerobic exercise, strength, flexibility and also improve fitness around your torso. Depending on how and where you do it, this can be exhilarating, relaxing and almost meditative, a great way to enjoy the waterways, improve your fitness, relax your mind and move you away from your comfortable city life.
If you head to www.visitnsw.com there are many areas within the state where you can try canoeing, some are as close as a two hour drive from the Sydney CBD!
