Hana is a unique place in a number of ways. It’s difficult to get to, but people travel the Road To Hana regularly just to visit.
Despite Maui being a popular tourist destination, Hana has pushed back against overdevelopment, and remains “native Hawaiian.” You won’t find the buzz of a big city here. The loudest noise you’ll hear is the sound of the falling rain that keeps Hana lush and green (and sometimes floods.) One of the reasons people make the long trek here is because of the quiet solitude that exists here, as well as some of the comforts of home.
So what are some of the therapeutic and restorative benefits of our tranquil environment?
Quiet Time Away Offers Clarity
One of the main reasons people take a vacation is to “get away from it all.” But in many cases, they visit vacation spots that are just as busy and active as home, then go right back to their everyday routine. They’re never really “on vacation,” don’t disconnect and rejuvenate.
Experiencing quiet solitude turns off the constant “noise” and busy-ness that keeps you from hearing your own voice and thinking for yourself. Even if you’re visiting Hana with your family, a group, or just your significant other, you’re able to think clearer away from the “hive.”
Improved Concentration And Focus
Less “noise” and distraction improves these aspects, and you’ll be less affected by them. Quiet solitude helps the mind settle so that you can focus better. Better focus can lead to improved creativity, as well as help you see things from a better perspective.
Have you ever found the solution to a problem in an odd place, like while driving, or in the shower?
Without constant distractions, solitude allows you to think clearly and work through problems easier than you might normally. It eliminates the continuous stream of thoughts that fill your mind every day and allows you to process problems better. You’ll also increase your productivity with the more quiet solitude you experience.
If your brain is constantly in overdrive, your decision-making isn’t as effective. You can’t always think clearly or make a decision easily. Spending time in quiet solitude allows your mind to rest, regenerate and make decisions for yourself with a better understanding.
Our “always connected” society means that we’re always “on” except when we’re asleep. But it’s not about being bored or becoming isolated, it’s more about choosing solitude without any available stimuli, such as smartphones. It’s more about turning off the high emotions and infusing a sense of calm.
Giving yourself the gift of quiet solitude—either at home or here at Hana Kai Maui—allows you to unwind from stress and to make a choice as to how you respond to stimulation.
It’s not just about sitting on Waikaloa beach sipping cocktails. Relaxation is a mechanism for recharging and for helping the body heal from stress. Muscles relax as tension leaves, and things like migraine headaches disappear.
