Happy Hiking! 🙂
There are only 6 months remaining in 2019, and hiking can be that one activity that completes your year.
Let me try to change your mind and convince you why you should add hiking to your remaining bucket list for 2019! 🙂
All you need are your clothes, shoes, a backpack to contain your essentials and yourself!
From keeping you fit to improving your cardiovascular health, it provides positive benefits. It is essentially a physical activity that we can engage in.
Additionally, hiking can also improve your stamina over time and develop your muscles.
A little known fact is that hiking actually develops your muscles all over! As you hike in forested areas and rocky trails, you may be required to use your upper body and core to provide you with support while you hike!
There are multiple health benefits of hiking, your fitness level is just the tip of the iceberg. 🙂
A hike behaves as a distraction to such thoughts as you’re within nature and amongst lush greenery! Studies have shown that being in nature allows you to combat stress, and when you hike, endorphins are released! Endorphins are natural painkillers, and by the end of a hike, you will have a sense of euphoria! In other words, hiking has been proven to improve our mental health. 🙂
Hiking allows you to reconnect with yourself, and connect with those around you. By hiking, you witness your personal limitations and learn more about the way you react to things around you.
At the end of the hike, you will definitely witness how your body reacts, how you feel about completing the trail and start noticing how you question yourself during the hike.
If you’re hiking with relatives and/or friends, hiking will give you a chance to reconnect with them! Away from the bustling city and schedules, hiking will be the perfect opportunity to catch up with your loved ones, spend some time with them. Additionally, you can catch a glimpse of the sunrise or sunset with them, enjoy the beauty of nature together! 🙂
For safety purposes, it is strongly encouraged to ensure the elderly and young children are brought to less technical and less steep grounds for a hike!
Each hiking trail has its own characteristics and even if you’re walking through a flat ground through nature, completing it with your loved one should be the main goal.
Hiking routes have their own distinct characteristics. Apart from the views, the plants and trees you pass along the trail will also be different!
It’s time to explore the outdoors, get your hiking shoes, clothes and backpack and start hiking!
The memory of completing the trail will always be held close to you as accomplishments are often difficult to forget! 🙂
