Spring, a time when everything in nature around us, and within us, is changing with a fresh breath of life and hope. In May and early June, the rainforest comes alive with the resounding symphony of the new season. We invite you to experience this time of awakening and renewal at Nimmo Bay, with our Nature and Nurture Retreat.
5 Reasons To Visit Nimmo Bay This Spring
#4. Inspire Creativity
Stuck in a Creative Rut?
Consider taking your creative mind for a walk, or better yet, a wilderness retreat amongst the Great Bear Rainforest! Immersing yourself in new environments and experiences can propel your creative endeavours to new heights. Beautiful vistas, wilderness adventures, and outdoor fun can impact your brain in real ways.
In a 2012 study, researchers found that hikers were 50% more creative after spending 4 days in the wilderness. Researcher Ruth Ann Atchley believes that “the ‘soft fascination’ of the natural world appears to refresh the human mind, offering refuge from the cacophony of modern life.” The study (Creativity in the Wild) showed that immersion in nature, and the corresponding disconnection from multimedia technology, increases performance on problem-solving tasks. Neuroscientist David Strayer found “time in nature – sans cell phone – to be a powerful antidote to the constant distraction of our digital lives. More than that, it enhances higher-order thinking, restores attention, and boosts creativity.” A nature retreat at Nimmo Bay will help you to find that inspiration you are searching for!
“We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.” – Jonah Lehrer
