Spending time outside the house is fun and relaxing, especially when you’re in touch with nature and enjoying the greatness of the sun. For some people, an outdoor lifestyle is their passion and can’t imagine a day away from the mountains, for others is just a hobby, and while there are adventurous athletes traveling to the end of the world, you can also find quite a lot of hikers who live natural lifestyles and take care of our system.

Road running is an amazing exercise for clearing the mind, reducing and anxiety and increasing your health, but it can be more taxing on your body than you realize.
Forget the museums and historical tours, let’s go deep into the jungle, explore underwater caves, or hike up huge cliffs. Nature vacations are all about the natural resources of the places you go visit. You get to explore a new place, get in touch with nature, and satisfy your need for adventure.
The biggest understated truth about human beings is that we need sun and fresh air. We may have advanced enough to build elaborate shelters and distractions to constantly hide us from nature, but that doesn’t mean we’ve outgrown the benefits of being in touch with nature. Going outdoors and being active is something we all need on a very deep level, our bodies greatly benefit from it and it’s actually a necessity we can’t ignore without suffering.
For the last few decades, society has become more and more sedentary. The average adult is expected to work a 9 to 5 job locked away in an office, sitting at a desk in front of a computer, barely standing up during the workday, and then going home to try to unwind on the couch before going to bed. Even those who can actually make it to the gym on a daily basis are only spending about 6% on their days being active.

You need to know your own body and its requirements to choose the best diet for you and your activities (is not as simple as picking carrots over pizza), but here are some basic tips to keep in mind when you’re preparing your table. First Things First The most important meal comes first thing in the morning. You […]
We all seem to do the same things when planning a date. It’s a night out in the bar, dinner at a cosy restaurant, intimate meal at home, movies, a play, etc. It seems we really really want to stay indoors and wake up the next day with a hangover. Outdoor dates require pretty little commitment and effort. Regardless of the status of your relationship, planning a date in the open is a great idea. Outdoor dates are underestimated. They shouldn’t be, though. Having a date out in nature can be just as fun, and what’s more, it gives you the opportunity to focus on your date on a more […]
