Why go for a walk in the woods?
Taking a walk through the woods gives our minds a chance to unwind from
the crazy lives we have and leave us feeling refreshed when we return.
It gives us a chance to reflect and relax, to disconnect for a little while from the electronic world we are perennially connected to. UR professor Adam Frank wrote a nice piece for NPR in which he more elegantly argues for nature walks. It's a good read and not too long, and outlines some of the many reasons that people, myself included, like to go hiking. His piece can be found here.
