Live Better: How Getting Outdoors Can Transform Your Health


| 10/20/2017 9:14:00 AM


With each passing day, our lives continue to move with speed — and, by not stopping once in a while to take in the great outdoors, we miss out on opportunities to see life and the world through different perspectives.

In the outdoors, we can breathe deeply and briefly let go of our endless obligations. Our body, minds and soul yearn for it, whether we choose to simply spend time in our backyard, stroll through a park, or set off on a weekend backpacking trip.

But if planning your next outdoor getaway isn’t at the top of your priority list just yet, here are five reasons to motivate you to get outside.

1. Seek Out Bonding and Camaraderie

"Happiness is only real when shared." This famous quote from the 2007 film Into the Wild expresses how exploring and enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors brings about true happiness, particularly when you have someone with whom to experience it.



Camping, backpacking, hiking, fishing, lying in a hammock — all of these outdoor activities create bonds among friends, memories for families, and special moments in relationships. Of course, solitude has its place in nature, but experiencing the tranquility of it all with those we hold dear soothes the soul.
