·         Fresh air! Need we say more

·         Challenge and improve your balance. Walking on uneven surfaces can actually benefit your joint awareness and stability. Just be aware of any trip hazards.

·         Improve your bone health. The force of impact during walking can actually help stimulate bone growth.

·         Build your muscles and get your heart pumping. Add some elevation gain.  Progress from a gentle incline in your neighborhood to a wilderness mountain hike. This can help strengthen muscles and increase activity tolerance.

·         Get happy! Step up your pace and allow the endorphin release to enhance your mood.
