The best part about fishing while staying at Alaska Rainbow Lodge is that you’ll be improving your health in the process. Several health benefits happen through the act of an Alaska fishing adventure. Not only will you enjoy life away from the busy city, but you’ll also be lowering your blood pressure at the same time. Without further ado, here are five health benefits that you’ll get from Alaska fishing that will improve your overall health and daily life.  

1. Time for Relaxation

Similar to meditation, spending your time out on the Bristol Bay waters on Alaska fishing charters promotes relaxation. Not only will you be lowering your blood pressure, but you’ll feel the decrease of anxiety as you’re away from your daily life stressors. 

2. Sun Exposure

Not only does sun exposure increase your mood, but it’s also a great source of vitamin D, which boosts your immune system and promotes healthy bone growth.  

3. Working Out Your Body

During the Alaska fishing season, the fish are plentiful, and there’s no doubt you’ll be catching fish upwards of 30 pounds while on Bristol Bay. This means you’ll be using your entire body to battle with these massive creatures while you’re in Alaska fishing. Not only will you be using your legs, core, and upper body strength to reel in your catch, you’ll also be working on your balance in the meantime! 

4. Breathing in Fresh Air

Spending time around Alaska fish and wildlife during the Alaska fishing season means you’ll be outdoors for more extended periods of time. Breathing in the fresh air away from the polluted city most breathe in daily will decrease your risk of heart disease, respiratory issues, and lung cancer. 

5. Increase Awareness

While fishing, you’ll actively be using your senses and natural instincts to fish in Alaska if you want to land the biggest salmon you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Being aware of your surrounds during the act of fishing will translate over into your daily life. In addition to being aware of what’s going on around you, you’ll also be using your natural instincts during the Alaska fishing season. The minute you feel a tug on your line, or if you find yourself too close to wildlife for your own comfort, you’ll be continuously be improving your reaction time in your environment.
