Holidays at the lake

Jump Into the cool water with VAYA

Water is a wonderful invention of nature. It is the basis of life. When taken internally, it ensures that the body is well hydrated. And thus to enable all important processes in the body. Applied externally, it cleanses, pleases us with its sight, gives us refreshment and is at the same time a kind of outdoor playground. H20 also has a beneficial effect on the psyche. Reason enough to book a holiday at the lake soon.

This is how important water is for the body

Water is an essential component of cells and tissues and thus gives the body its shape. It is needed in all organs. Most importantly, it is for the kidneys and brain. After all, the kidneys are responsible for flushing everything out of the body that is no longer needed or even harmful.

The brain must be constantly supplied with nutrients in order to work well. Water is also enormously important for this. After all, blood also consists to a large extent of the clear liquid. Fortunately, word has already got around that the internal water supply is vital. Surely, we don’t have to tell you that you should drink enough of it, especially in hot temperatures, do we?

Water makes you happy

Surely you know the calming feeling that sets in when you look at water. So maybe not if it’s in front of us in a bottle or a glass. But when you think of a lake, a stream, a rushing river, a waterfall or the sea, it does something to you, doesn’t it? In fact, the view of the water is good for the soul. We know this not only from our own experience. This has been proven by researchers in studies.

According to marine biologist Wallace Nichols, one reason for this could be that our bodies consist of almost 70 percent water. And as a result, a deep biological connection exists that triggers a direct response in the brain. Studies show that even the sound of water activates the release of messenger substances that stimulate blood circulation and affect well-being. It also showed that people can talk about themselves much more easily when they walk along the water. Water surfaces can serve as a projection surface that helps to think about oneself and one’s mood.

Holidays at the lake for the soul

Those who swim in the water feel its power. The ebb and flow of the waves and the feeling of weightlessness also make the trials and tribulations of everyday life fall away. Many people feel that they have new energy after a swim in a lake or sea. Clever minds from the field of psychology explain this by the fact that water is a kind of barrier to the “Every Day Hustle” of constant communication, floods of news, electronic sprinkling and noise.

With the VAYA Zell am See in Salzburg and the Achensee Resort by VAYA in Tyrol, you have two properties available for your holiday at the lake. But also from our other VAYAs the nearest mountain lake or stream is always only a stone’s throw away.
