Outdoor activities have a tremendous impact on both physical and mental well-being. When you engage in activities like hiking, biking, or even just taking a walk in nature, you get a chance to breathe in fresh air and soak up some vitamin D from the sun. This not only boosts your physical health by improving cardiovascular fitness and strengthening muscles, but it also has a positive effect on your mental well-being.
