As the leaves continue to change and fall from the trees the weather, in many parts of the country, continues to be just perfect to head out for an autumn stroll. Whether you live in the hills of New Hampshire or the plains of New Mexico, this time of year is perfect to get out and explore the beauty that nature has to offer.
A stroll among nature, at any time of the year, can be so rewarding both mentally and physically, but when there is a slight chill in the air the benefits to your skin and your well-being are endless.
Being out in the fresh air has so many benefits including:
- Clearing your mind of daily stresses
- Better sleep habits - being in cooler air will help you sleep better at night
- Stimulates calorie burning
- Air is cleaner and better for breathing
