Additionally, exposure to natural light and fresh air has been shown to boost mood and reduce stress levels. Being in nature and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life can provide a sense of peace and tranquility, helping to improve mental wellbeing. Overall, hiking and being outdoors is a great way to improve overall health and wellbeing.
