Hiking in nature with children
So beneficial for them!

Anita Olds: ``There's no way that we can help children to learn to love and preserve this planet, if we don't give them direct experiences with the miracles and blessings of nature.``

We all know that hiking outdoors is good for our health.
But, have you ever thought how really good is for children as well?

According to researchers some of the benefits are:

  • Improved cardiorespiratory, muscular fitness and better bone health
  • Possibly reduced risk of depression and feeling less stress, more ready to learn in school
  • Children with symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are better able to concentrate after contact with nature
  • Children who play regularly in natural environments show more advanced motor fitness, including coordination, balance and agility, and they are sick less often
  • Nature helps children develop powers of observation and creativity and instills a sense of peace and being at one with the world
  • Natural environments stimulate social interaction between children
  • Play in outdoor environments stimulates all aspects of children development more readily than indoor environments
  • Sleeping better at night

So take the opportunity and learn your little ones to be active in nature and go hiking!
