Hiking is not only just fun and enjoyable, but also good for your inner and physical health. Here are some benefits that you can get from hiking.
Increasing Bone Density
Hiking is a weight-bearing exercise, which means your bones and muscles work harder against gravity. Bone density refers to the amount of bone mineral contained in one’s bones.
High bone density is important for preventing fractures and reducing risk for osteoporosis. High impact and weight-bearing activities like hiking help to improve bone density by strengthening the bone tissue. However to make these activities to be more effective in increasing bone density, they need to be done at a moderate to high-level. For instance, the physical impact of hiking up a steep trail is more beneficial to building bone density than hiking along a flat trail. In addition, hiking outdoors brings you a dose of Vitamin D from sunlight exposure. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption, which we need for bone health.
Physical exercise promotes the release of endorphins, a brain chemical that triggers positive feelings. Especially outdoor walking within the green nature brings more energy than in the city. Stanford University researcher Gregory Bratman assigned 60 people to either a 50-minute walk in the woods or a walk along paved roads. Results showed that the nature-walkers experienced less anxiety and rumination, as well as more positive emotions than the urban walkers.
In addition to this, to go for a hike with your friend or neighbor can be good for social interaction. Being with people with whom you have a strong bond and you love, is an important for happiness and well-being.
Someone might think that hiking has no relation between losing weight but it do have weight loss effect. The amount of calories burned during a hike will be different depends on several factors like weight, gender, and aerobic intensity, however if you’re just starting out, even light hiking can result in gradual weight loss.
The recommendation for physical activity for adults is at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) per week. If your goal is weight loss, try starting out with three 50 minute hikes per week on a local trail.
