When enjoying our days during holidays, we can also minimize our impact. We can choose to carry reusable bottles for water and reusable cutlery to the beach, or do activities similar to forest bathing, which aims to let nature enter the body through all five senses and often involves hiking, tasting natural ingredients such as root teas, and smelling plants. The practice has been scientifically proven to lower heart rate and blood pressure, and even boost immune system function. For those who want to give something back to nature, plogging might be the answer. It involves picking up litter while jogging, combining exercising in nature with doing something worthwhile.
Finally, considering our transportation options can largely lower our environmental footprint: choosing ground transportation vs flying when possible, or at least compensating for our carbon emissions when flying. Most airlines nowadays offer a lot of options in this area.
