Get in the zone for Relaxation Day

Nature Trail

Every year August 15th marks National Relaxation Day, an important reminder that we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live. Here at Bluestone we’re experts in creating that perfect escape, where you can do as much or as little as you like, so you can unwind and recharge your batteries. If you’re coming to stay with us soon and are looking for some relaxation inspiration for your time in Pembrokeshire then here are our top tips.

Get back to Nature

Pack your walking boots and take a walk along our many nature trails. Listen to the gentle trickling of the stream, listen to the birds and take a seat to enjoy nature’s theatre playing before you. Being out and about in the sunlight will help to regulate your body’s melatonin production, this is a hormone that looks after your body clock. The part of your brain which produces this hormone is directly affected by natural light. So getting the right amount ensures you have a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.

Explore the Pembrokeshire Coast Path

Whether you fancy something of a challenge, or a gentle stroll, with 186 miles there’s plenty of choice for a coastal walk in our county. The exercise will boost your endorphins, responsible for that feel-good factor helping you to blow away some cobwebs in the seaside air. Being in the fresh Pembrokeshire air with minimal pollution will also help your heart rate and blood pressure, as your body doesn’t have to work as hard to get the oxygen it needs to function.

Top up on your Vitamin D and your Vitamin SEA

During your stay be sure to head to at least one of the county’s beautiful beaches. Kick off your shoes and stroll along the sand listening to the sound of the waves. A study from the University of Exeter suggested that people who spent more time on beaches had less stress and better overall health. Being out in the sun will top up your Vitamin D which helps our bodies to absorb calcium; it also helps to increase circulation and lower blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels.
