The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are falling, but that doesn’t mean you have to huddle up for winter quite yet. Campus Rec Outdoor Adventures is offering some great fall trips to stay active outside before the snow falls. It’s mid-semester and many students are getting bogged down with school work, but it is important to continue exercising and getting physical activity even as we start to head indoors more.

Looking for a new spin on your current workout routine? Skip the gym next time and instead, take on the mountain! Hiking in beautiful New England not only gives you the opportunity to get a breath of fresh air and clear your mind, but hiking is also a powerful cardio and strength building exercise! While getting in a great cardio workout, strengthening your muscles and improving your balance, hiking can also decrease your risk for heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis and arthritis.

As the ground is finally unthawing and the leaves are starting to grow, it's time to start getting outdoors again! Spring is finally (FINALLY) here and what better way to celebrate than to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air while working out? One of my favorite outdoor activities is hiking. It's a really great form of exercise and can also be good for your mental health.

Physical activity does not necessarily require going to the gym.  Why spend time exercising indoors when you have the glorious wilderness to explore?! Hiking is a great workout—for the body and the mind. Even a couple miles is a great cardiovascular workout, especially if you’re carrying extra weight like a backpack with water or snacks. The serenity of nature allows your mind to be at ease as you trek the trail. The combination of aerobic activity and meditation provides a unique experience, unparalleled by other forms of physical activity.

As the temperatures start to drop out of the 70’s, many people begin to get into “winter” mode and forget about all the great things the fall has to offer, especially in New England.  This season is a great time to take advantage of some outside physical activities.  Around UNH, you can find some great running routes or take a stroll through college woods. All the leaves are beginning to change colors and a walk in college woods is not only great for your health, but maybe a nice stress reliever too!
