Rating: *****

This article, spoken from experienced hikers to beginner hikers, explains the benefits of hiking, how it distributes your positive attitude, healthy lifestyle, and creativity not only towards outdoor activities but also towards other important things in your life as well. 

Research shows that spending more time outdoors increases attention spans and creative problem-solving skills by as much as 50 percent. Hikers, in general, have a healthy lifestyle. They are very fit, which means that their body works out as much as their brain, it's a great way to get a serious workout without hurting yourself that much such as your joints or muscles. Plus, walking through the trails can decrease blood pressure and cholesterol which can guarantee to reduce the danger of heart disease, diabetes and strokes. Hikers are happier, creative, and super duper fit. 

Throughout this article, it has given me several pointers on how hiking can definitely benefit you academically, mentally and physically. Everything written in the article is proven 100% right everything single day. It can inspire a lot of people that are less active to have a reason to lead a more active lifestyle. Hiking can allow people to connect with themselves and nature in a way that brings a sense of well-being and peace. It's very focused on having a better lifestyle and a positive attitude towards anything life throws at you!
