Life, especially for those who live in metropolitan cities, can be full of stress, from the everyday hustle and bustle, jumping buses to commute to work, traffic, noise, pollution and more can be oftentimes destabilizing. In such an environment, there is a need to find a way to relax, ease of stress and ensure your mental health is top-notch. One of the ways to do this is by retreating to a quiet place away from the noise and distraction to ensure you refuel and get back more energized than before.
