forestloveHeart-Healthy Hiking

It’s February….and hearts are everywhere!  Instead of eating a box of chocolate covered ones, show yourself some love and go on a heart-healthy hike.

Hiking outdoors has plenty of perks: nice views, fresh air, and the sounds and smells of nature.

It’s good for you, too. Hiking is a powerful workout that can:

  • Lower your risk of heart disease
  • Boost bone density
  • Improve blood pressure
  • Improve blood sugar levels
  • Strengthen your core
  • Improve balance
  • Control your weight
  • Boost your mood

Did you know that even a small hill will intensify your heart rate and burn extra calories?  Just a 5% incline can equal a 30% calorie burn.

Studies show that exercising in nature can boost your mood…so lace up those hiking boots and go for a heart-healthy hike!  It’s good for your heart and your mind. <3
