There is nothing better than a quiet stroll in the country, especially for your mental health! Connecting with nature, fresh air and exercise are the best possible ways to relieve stress and distract yourself from the daily grind!
For those looking to range further there may need to be a little bit more prep, especially if you are looking to roam local mountains or to embark on one of the growing number of long distance walks, from the wicklow way to the Pennines or even up to the Camino or Appalachian trail.
More than any other sport, hiking emphasises understanding your environment, knowing how to navigate and cope with the weather are added complications.
You’re going to be carrying a lot more kit with you as well, so knowing what you need and don’t need is essential.
