The secret to health and fitness isn’t as elusive as some think. It comes down to our nature and being in nature. We were made to spend the greater part of every day hunting and gathering, moving briskly, breathing fresh air, and getting some vitamin D. We were meant to gaze in wonder at the Milky Way and the star-filled sky, and to appreciate the play of the seasons on the landscape. That’s what good for us. If we just get back to nature, and our natural, physical selves, the many maladies of our so called civilized lives (stress, obesity, and their life threatening manifestations, the mild neurosis, anxieties, and depression) will begin to dissipate.
Ok, I’ll get off my soapbox. I’m not saying you have to quit your job and hike the Pacific Crest Trial. I’m just saying, if you can, get outside and play. Take steps with me today towards a healthier mind, body and spirit.
One thing I do know is that I’m happiest when I’m sharing my passion for nature, fitness, adventure travel, and living vigorously. Join me for active escapades, wilderness excursions and cultural explorations near and far. Tune in for inspiration, fitness and camping tips, top picks of gear, eateries and lodging, nature and wildlife pics and videos, the occasional cat video and more.
