The pace at which activities and life, in general, are coming at us is quite fast now, more than ever. The high-octane political campaigns currently rocking the country have added a little more spice to the stress levels and psychological burden people are experiencing.
Experts in the tourism sector are of the opinion that, taking a leisure trip provides opportunities for relaxation, detachment from work, and personal control.
Employees who suffer from work-related stress often experience poor psychological wellness, which might contribute to mental problems and negatively influence job performance. The strain of daily work can also negatively influence the perspective on life satisfaction, of individuals.
With one of the most important motivational forces for tourism experience being to escape from routine and stressful environments, it is postulated that taking a leisure trip (even a short weekend getaway), can help individuals to recover from work stress and increase psychological well-being.
Laikipia County boasts of having abundant and a variety of tourism destinations and related activities that people could enjoy. Conservancies, ranches, hotels, and natural sites are available in all corners of the county. For all biophiles and zoophiles, it is the county to be in as it will cater to both.
The amazing sites and sounds of waters falling at speed, 100fts down to the cool gorge at the Thomson Falls in Nyahururu, are sure to calm and relax your mood. The tropical trees and wild banana plantations also create a calming ambiance in contrast to the hectic daily activities one is used to experiencing.
A trip to the OlPajeta conservancy will offer you a glimpse into some of the rarest animals available in this planet like the Northern white rhino among others. A vacation at the Maiyan Resort, a visit to the Warwick hotel or a camping trip at the Mugie camp will change your viewpoint on life satisfaction for sure.
Even though some constraints such as time, money, and companionship are factors preventing people from taking vacations, the awareness of the benefits derived from tourism is quite scarce. Knowledge of its benefits will encourage people to travel more or at least have a stronger intention to do so. This also means more opportunities to forget about their work, experience new things, and relax.
