A walk in nature can give you the small dose of wilderness needed to refresh your spirit. Nature hikes are a great way to soothe the mind, and walking can help to increase your ability to focus and concentrate.
Whether you see nature walks as a time for introspection or a chance to learn about wildlife, make the most of your stroll in wilderness. Listen closely to birds and insects. Look for a tree, flower, or rock that stands out to you. Bring a camera and take photos to share with friends and family, as well as a basic field guide to help identify animals and plants.
