With screen time at an all-time high, there is an evident spike in interest for outdoor adventures as the preferred getaway among the youth.
Over the past year, the line between our physical and virtual worlds have blurred more than ever, urging people to build a sustainable balance in their lifestyle. Young adults are now choosing to have a more meaningful experience away from the desk, where they can merge their time for building social interactions with some form of physical activity.
Hadi Fakhoury, CEO of Tamana Adventures LLC and Managing Director at Circuit X, said: "In the two months since launching in Hudayriyat Leisure and Entertainment District, we've seen increased interest from 18- to 40-year-olds. The High Ropes Park especially is a huge hit for group activities as friends face their fears together, guide each other through challenging obstacles, and leave with a truly unforgettable experience."
Here are five reasons why trying an outdoor adventure experience with friends at Circuit X can help enrich your life by engaging in fun physical activities:
- Work-life balance: Don't wait for travel restrictions to ease to take some time off and destress. Outdoor trips can help you disconnect from technology, reconnect with nature, and reset yourself to not only remain productive but also light up your creativity.
- Managing Zoom fatigue: Exhaustion from virtual meetings is a real problem, and it's best treated with some active time off the screen and outdoors. While the occasional visual breaks can help in the short term, taking time to get outside, away from meetings is a great way to bring back your attention and sharpen your focus. Reconnecting with nature by exploring new terrains and discovering stunning views at Hudayriyat Island also helps create an awareness of the environment and an understanding of the reciprocal relationship between mankind and the outdoors.
- Bonding together: Working from home during the pandemic can feel incredibly isolating. Enjoying a fun and stimulating experience with your friends and family helps you disconnect from the hectic daily routine and be in the present. By doing something out of the ordinary, you create lifelong memories that strengthen your bonds.
- Caring for your body and mind: It's no secret that excessive sitting has negative impacts on posture and health. Physical activity, in nature, comes with a whole range of health benefits from muscular strength to mental wellness. With an array of thrilling experiences such as high ropes obstacles, a climbing wall and ziplining to skating and biking, you can find the perfect outdoor adventure activity to feel more energised and empowered.
- Adding vigour: Outdoor activities challenge you to go out of your comfort zone. Being exposed to unpredictable courses puts your adaptation skills into action. Whether it's trying a new outdoor sport or taking your skills to the next level, a spirit of adventure will undoubtedly lead your confidence levels to grow.
"Circuit X was built on the belief that people's lives can be enriched when they explore new adventures together and develop new skills. Events of the last year have only made these basic human needs more crucial to our wellbeing. Through the different exhilarating experiences at our parks, we are not only helping people put their body and minds in motion, but also helping them enjoy the present moment with friends," Hadi said.
Located within Modon's Hudayriyat Leisure and Entertainment District, Circuit X is spread across 15,000 square metres. Home to four action-packed parks, The BMX Park, High Ropes Park as well as Skate Park, and Splash & Climb Park within Marsana, the destination offers four exciting ways to enrich winter break for your children.
