Is ADVENTURE in your healthy living plan? By Amy Christensen

5 Reasons Adventure Goals Are Healthy for Body & Mind
Are you stuck in a workout rut? Tired of the gym? Find yourself yearning for more excitement and adventure?
It’s totally possible. And even better—it’s good for you in both body and mind!
If you define an adventure as trekking around the world, or a week-long expedition into the backcountry, can feel either inaccessible, or like a long-term goal months (or years) away.
But it doesn’t have to be. Creating and nurturing short-term and daily adventures as part of your fitness goals has enormous benefits of its own.
1.    It’s social. Going for a hike, learning a new sport, or signing up for a local kickball team encourages interactions and sparks conversations. At a gym or a fitness class, we’re often in our own world (even if there are others around.) Creating a social environment where you’re sharing the experience can make working out more fun and less of a “chore” or “obligation.” Get your friends or family involved!
