It’s the premise of many a Hallmark movie: a stressed-out city dweller retreats to the country and finds true happiness. It turns out that science backs up that romantic fantasy; a trip to the country could make you happier … and healthier, too!

Researchers at the University of Michigan found that when people are exposed to a crowded urban environment, like a busy city street, they suffer from diminished impulse control and have difficulty retaining information. A study based in the United Kingdom found that noise pollution ⸺ traffic, airports, and the cacophony that is ever-present in the city ⸺ contributed to stress-related disorders, hearing loss and cardiovascular disease.

Now, contrast the noise, the pollution, and the push-and- shove environment of a major city with the blissfully serene surroundings of the Henry Blosser House Country Inn. Breathe in the fresh country air, listen to the peaceful sounds of nature, take in the mesmerizing tapestry of stars in a night sky unspoiled by city lights, and let the stresses of everyday life fall away.

While it may not be practical to pick up and move to the country, you can “detox” from all that urban stress. Amid the picturesque surroundings of the Blosser House Country Inn, you can relax your body and refresh your brain. Here are a few ideas for your rejuvenating getaway:
