Countryside: A general note and benefits

The rural areas all over the world are often referred to as countryside.  Countryside can be defined as any geographic location that is inhabited by some population but has not been urbanized. The definition and extent of countryside varies from one nation to another. However, the general characteristics of any countryside irrespective of the nation are the prevalence of agriculture along with its paraphernalia as the primary profession of the inhabitants. The other salient features of a typical countryside include population density on the lower side and settlements of relatively smaller size.

As opposed to the urban lifestyle, the daily life in countryside is quite simple and hassle free. This simplicity of life is alluring current day city dwellers to have an escape to the country for a stress free vacation. Nowadays, many members of the affluent class have extended their real estate perimeters in the rural areas to enjoy the serenity and tranquility that these areas can offer. In other words, the calm atmosphere and environment give a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Health freaks all over the world follow the benefits of exercise in the countryside like the Bible. Researches reveal that the benefits of exercise when done on an open space like the countryside increases manifold. It is because the fresh air rejuvenates the mind and the body alike as opposed to the hard-core weight training in the confines of the four walls of the gym. Being in the countryside brings an inherent sense of peace in an individual.
