Explore with your senses

Here at Treasure Trails, we love creating great routes and sneaky Clues that force you to see locations differently, whether that’s following a path you’ve never trodden before, noticing a carving on a building you’ve walked past more times than you’ve had hot dinners, or stopping to take a closer look at things you would otherwise walk on by. 

This, in turn, compels you, as explorers, to live in the moment and focus on the here and now, helping to bring some mindfulness into your day. This is a brilliant way to observe your thoughts and feelings while decreasing stress and anxiety, bringing more happiness and meaning into your life. What’s more, happy explorers make good explorers and that means you’ll be even more expert at solving Clues! 

But, how often do you really get in touch with your senses while out on an adventure, or while going about your day to day activities? Sure, you’ll be used to tapping into your keen observations skills when scanning around for intel, but do you know how awesome the rest of your senses can be? 

Join us on our quest to explore with our senses and discover just what our amazing bodies are capable of!
