Here are just a few of the many health benefits of hiking:

1. Hiking Makes You Happier
It can help maintain and strengthen your mental health, which can be just as important as caring for the health of your body.

2. Improves Overall Health
By going for a hike, we give our bodies the attention and activity they're looking for.

3. Reduces Your Risk of Heart Disease
Walking is a great way to reduce both high blood pressure and cholesterol through frequent hikes. 

4. Helps Prevent Diabetes
If you have diabetes, hiking can be a great way to get the amount of insulin in your body under control. Regular exercise can also prevent diabetes from causing degenerative damage to the body.

6. Strengthens Relationships with Friends
Through creating frequent hiking “dates” you have something to look forward to with your friends that will improve everyone’s mood and happiness. Sharing the experience of reaching the tops of the mountains or hills can also be great for bonding.

7. Reduces Anxiety and Tension
Hiking can help you relieve stress, anxiety, and tension by by increasing the natural endorphins released in our bodies. Because the workout takes a lot of energy and effort, you will feel more relaxed when you return home. It can also help reduce your stress by forcing you to unplug from your cellphone or laptop.

8. Helps with Osteoporosis and Arthritis
One of the main reasons that hiking can help with osteoporosis and arthritis is because it helps your circulation. When you’re out and moving, your body can push oxygen through the joints more easily and can help to remove inflammation from the area, which can cause you pain if it is not given the proper attention.

9. Increases Cardio-respiratory Fitness
Hiking is an excellent cardio workout. 

10. Helps You Sleep Better
Exercise in general greatly impacts sleep quality.

11. Keeps Your Weight Under Control
Hiking is a great way to burn calories, drop extra pounds, and tone up your entire body.

HAPPY HIKING!!!
