On this #ExploreMoreMonday, I want you to know that this Friday, November 17th is National Take A Hike Day. There are local events scheduled across the country in celebration of this day. What better way to start the hectic holiday season than to hit the trails? One of the reasons I love to hike is to clear my mind, connect with nature, and exercise in a beautiful setting. I am sure you have all seen the Hiking is cheaper than therapy t-shirt. I could not agree more. Hiking puts a smile on my face, centers my mind, and helps me appreciate the little things.
Need further incentive? Hiking burns 430-550 calories an hour, and lowers your blood pressure. What are you waiting for? Strap on your hiking boots, grab a water bottle and your backpack, and go explore some trails. Don’t forget to post a pic of your hike on social media with #NationalTakeAHikeDay.
Where will you be hiking on National Take A Hike Day? This is a good day to invite friends and family along to introduce them to hiking. If you’re lucky, they will love it as much as you do!
As always, remember #hikingisfun. Your #adventureawaits and take a hike on #nationaltakeahikeday!
