Get Hiking and Reap the Benefits

Tue, 2017-08-22 10:06 -- admin

The therapeutic benefits of walking in nature are generally acknowledged by those who have experienced it – the calm feeling that takes over from simply being surrounded by trees, flowers, wildlife and spectacular views. Yet this sense of wellbeing stimulated by a green environment is increasingly being measured by scientific research that confirms the positive reactions taking place in the body. It is known, for example, that even looking at a video of nature can reduce stress levels. So when it comes to actually walking and experiencing nature firsthand, anxiety, stress and even depression can be reduced significantly while quality of sleep can be improved.

At the same time experiencing natural surroundings is said to increase the brain’s creativity and problem-solving skills. Mental wellbeing is just one aspect that can be improved by a hike in nature; the physical benefits are equally impressive. These include burning calories to help weight loss, building strength in legs and the body’s core, boosting immunity, increasing bone density, lowering blood pressure, and reducing the risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and triglycerides, heart disease, stroke and osteoporosis. In fact, hiking constitutes a good workout to almost every part of the body, including the legs, knees, ankles, arms, hips, abdominals, shoulders and neck, and regular practice helps improve the fitness of muscles, heart, lungs and blood vessels. One of the many advantages of hiking is that it is a low-intensity workout while being a free and fun activity for all ages and abilities also makes it an attractive form of exercise. Even those with no experience can begin with easy hikes and work their way up over time to more challenging walks. At only one hour drive from Beirut, the hiking trail at Ahlam Golf & Mountain Village developed by FFA Real Estate makes a conveniently close destination for hikers looking to be immersed in pure, unspoiled nature.

Since the launch of the Ahlam’s summer activity program in July, the development in Kfardebian’s mountains has been welcoming many individuals and families to its forest trail for walks that give all the benefits of nature, climate and stunning views.
