The Live Local movement is about people connecting with their environments–without a pricey plane ticket, fancy destination, or vacation-day deficit. How can you #LiveLocal? Simply explore–your city, your state, your backyard. There are tons of benefits of seeking adventure where you’re at, and here are just a few:
- Save money: Local trips are less expensive, so you can take more of them without using up all of your vacation days!
- Reap the benefits of nature on your mind and body: Local getaways can help you de-stress while increasing happiness, confidence, focus, and creativity. Taking shorter, frequent trips helps prevent burnout since you are treating the cause of the problem, not the symptoms.
- Build your community: Gain an appreciation for your unique environment and support local companies. Make connections with people and places. Not to mention you’re supporting local businesses at the same time!
