New Year, Next Adventure

What’s your New Year resolution?

While some of us face the “What the Hell” affect by overstepping a punishing self-set New Year’s resolution such as no more caffeine, no more chocolate or trying to commit to the Gym 5 times a week. Why not take upon the New Year with the goal to get outside? Even if it’s just for 15 minutes a day, science proves that being outdoors will make you a happier person.

The outdoors is Free

Forget Gym membership or those spin classes that’ll you’ll never stick too. Simply put on your hiking boots or runners and get back to nature, it’s as simple as walking the dog.

Why not ride your bike to work or climb to the top of a mountain- the possibilities are endless. Make New year your next Adventure.

Appreciate life

Spending time outdoors will help you appreciate the beauty in life. Experience the start of a new day watching the sunrise or take in the breathtaking sunset as the worries of the day are put in the past.

Sleep Better

Our bodies perform best when we follow their natural circadian rhythms—the cycle of sunlight and darkness over the course of 24 hours, spending time outside while it’s still light out will help you produce melatonin, the hormone that controls sleep, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter that makes you feel awake and cheerful.

So when’s your Next Adventure?
