STRONGEST STRESS RELIEVER AND RESILIENCE BUILDER:
THREE OF THE MOST POTENT STRESS-RELIEVERS ARE COMBINED IN A CANYONING CHALLENGE
RIVER TRACING AND SCENIC HIKES AS A SOLUTION TO STRESS
Canyoning in Slovenia exposes us to intense but short-lived fear and we also (more or less) overcome it. The sugar release is no problem because we need it anyway. Once you have done enough canyoning and you have exposed yourself to enough fear, you start to perceive daily situations as not that frightening. Therefore your cortisol levels stay low. Even after one canyoning tour the sense of achievement is substantial and takes some of your anxiety away.
Another solution Soča river canyoning offers us is that it forces us to be mindful – present in the moment. (It still is an extreme sport and making mistakes is not an option so staying focused is obligatory and comes naturally.) And many lovely crystal clear pools of water give us the chance to do some floating meditation as well, while trying to unjudgementally accept the cold which is wrapping our bodies. Meditation and mindfulness proved to lower cortisol and reduce stress.
CANYONING IS A GOOD ALL-ROUND EXERCISE
Sometimes the adrenaline shot we get leaves us with heightened awareness, focus, enhanced productivity and feeling calm all day long.
