Recently, a great number of psychologists have been trying to draw our attention to the importance of having a healthy mindset. The importance of mental health has been neglected over physical health, and many experts are trying to prove to us how mindfulness can have a positive effect on a healthy lifestyle, emphasising that having a healthy mind is as much as important as having a healthy body. That’s where mindfulness retreats appear.
 

But what is mindfulness?


We can define mindfulness as “the human ability to be fully present at the moment, with a goal, to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes”. A lot of researches have been done about mindfulness, and its benefits, and how it can be practised.
 

Mindfulness doesn’t eliminate stress or other difficulties; instead, by becoming aware of unpleasant thoughts and emotions that arise because of challenging situations, we have more choice in how to handle them at the moment — and a better chance of reacting calmly and empathetically when faced with stress or challenges.


Meaning that, even though mindfulness is something we all naturally possess, practising it daily, can help us further develop the ability to be present throughout the day. Some of the most popular and effective mindfulness retreats are focused attention, body scan, loving-kindness, visualisation, resting awareness, reflection… Improving your quality of life together with practising mindfulness, can be much improved and advanced with connection with nature.


 
It has been scientifically approved that nature improves psychological well-being. With positive mental health, wellbeing is most likely to thrive in a supportive and inclusive environment.

 

 “A study on the cognitive benefits of nature found that subjects who took a nature walk did better on a memory test than the subjects who walked down the urban streets.”

”A study at the University of Kansas found that spending more time outdoors and less time with our electronic devices can increase our problem-solving skills and improve creative abilities.”

 
FitCamp Montenegro and MyGuideMontenegro in cooperation with Lifestyle Montenegro are also organising the “UNPLUG” retreat event. Defined as a conceptual event dedicated to the improvement of a healthier lifestyle, this event aims to reconnect people with nature. In which sense? Being aware of which quantity digital technology has overtaken our lives, it’s good to “unplug” from time to time, from virtual life and see and hear what nature has to tell us. This pop-up event is created for digital nomads, stressed individuals that want to improve their lifestyle, as well as corporate team buildings. These programs are starting in Montenegro from spring 2020, in special green locations like Eco Village Nevidio and FitCamp Montenegro.
