Hiking in the great outdoors gives you the perfect opportunity to disconnect from daily life and reconnect with nature.
Outside of the immediate benefits of getting lots of fresh air, getting your boots on and going on a hike offers other benefits. It is weight-bearing, which helps maintain and build bone density. You get loads of natural Vitamin D which helps calcium absorption as well as combating low mood, stress and depression.
Hiking can also help improve overall sleep quality thanks to exposure to natural light and disconnection from blue light. The endorphins released while hiking trigger positive feelings which help improve our mood and boost happiness.
On top of all that, the social support of hiking with a group improves overall health and wellbeing.
