Physical Activity + Nature = Adventure

First weekend of #THE100DAYWELLNESSCANVAS.

Staying whole week long in the office got me craving natural sun light and true movement. So, I decided to listen to my body and devoted the weekend to its needs 🙂

Day 4

Kayaking for a first time in a lake turned out to be a whole adventure. Sunlight, wind, a yellow kayak in blue waters – amazing!

Having a walk in search of the best sunset view was the great end of the day.

After having a day devoted to the muscles of the upper part of the body, we decided to do something for our legs 😀 Let them walk on the steep mountain hills in search of the best views and our physical limit!

Keep calm, stop, relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape. Don’t forget to be well equipped when going on a trek. Always take food and water with you, as well as windproof jacket (at least wind proof because at elevation the weather can turn and the temperature drops very quickly).

Now sitting in the office with aching muscles reminding of the great weekend is not such a torture.

Doing some exercise outdoors has a lot of benefits for your health:

  • Strengthen your bones and muscles.
  • Makes you feel more energetic.
  • It increases feelings of happiness and self-worth.
  • Leads to better mood, better self-esteem.
  • Improve your sleep.
  • Reduce depression.
  • Makes you focus on the present moment.

Use any opportunity to spend your time outside. Your body will be grateful!
