“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.” –Robert Louis Stevenson

Let us do some fun outdoor activities

Stop wearing pajamas during weekend, instead wear your sporty outfit

Are you stressed? Well it’s time for some fun outdoor activities! We often dread going outside because it’s too tiring and we’d rather settle down for some pop corn and movies. But spending your weekend doing movie bingeing all the time is not good for you. Here’s the reasons why:

You get bored

Watching movies, series, and talk shows is great way to entertained ourselves but overtime, it can be boring. You’ll get tired of the patterns in the movies like the protagonist die at the end, she’ll break up with him after a day, and you know what I mean. They become predictable.

You’re missing some fresh air

Our body needs oxygen to live and regenerate. There are qualities of air. Now, that there are cities and modernization going on the quality of air we inhale is not as good compared to rural areas. They have better air. Did you know that spending at least an hour in the rain forest helps your body release toxic? Yes, that’s true! Because the quality of air in rain forests is rich in oxygen with no signs of pollution. If you will stay in your apartment all day, then you are missing some good air.

You’re gaining too much weight

The fact that you don’t have physical exercise and sitting all day while munching junk foods, you’ll definitely gain some weight specially around your belly. Doing what you do could be signs of stress. You need to unload and go outside.

Go for some outdoor fun!

It’s time to be fit and healthy alone or with friends. Go out and see the amazing world God has created for you to behold. Don’t be contented seeing them in Discovery Channel, see it for in your own eyes. The best part, you are burning calories while your’re having fun.

Get to the peak of a mountain and enjoy the view

Hikers will spend all their energy just to get to the peak of a mountain. Why is that? There is pleasure in overcoming struggles while hiking to reach the peak. It is same with life, you’ll dream to get to the top but are you willing to take the steps to reach it? Getting to the mountain peak is hard and tedious but once you reach it, all your efforts will worth it. The view and the air will overwhelm your burdened soul. So see you at the top my friend.

Ride a bike and tone those legs

Riding a bike is one of the easiest exercise you can do because it is really enjoyable. They say that road trip with your car is like viewing a movie in a cinema house but riding a bicycle is like staring at it closely. There’s a big difference. Biking is a great exercise and stress reliever. If you think you are stressed, take your bike and roll!

Pump your adrenaline through daring slides

Have you tried skiing? You don’t have to be an expert. Anyone can learn to ski in just few hours. Let me tell you that it is one of the best adrenaline pumping sports. Don’t be afraid, the ice won’t eat you alive. Invite your friends and slide the uneasy slopes of the mountain. We guarantee that you’ll be more fiercer and daring than ever.

Try something new

There are so many things you can do outdoors. Get some fresh air and move. Don’t let your body rot in your sofa. If you want to have some relaxing outdoor fun, you can also try kayaking, ballooning, sight-seeing, and more. Don’t be limited with our list. We are humans who have limitations too. Try something new.
