Western North Carolina is a popular hiking location – for good reason. But did you know that spending time out in nature’s natural beauty can be good for your health? Not only is trekking through the woods a great form of exercise, it can also be a stress reliever. What better way to clear an anxious mind than with a calming walk through the springtime greenery.
Even a quick walk outdoors can make a difference in your day. Try taking a stroll outside during your lunchbreak. Or ditch the dishes after dinner and take a quick lap around the block to unwind. If a daily habit is too difficult to stick to, then consider planning longer trek on the weekend. Your mental and physical health is worth the little bit of time out of your week.
