Foster Positive Relationships

Hiking with an important someone allows you to check in with them on a deeper level and be a more supportive friend, partner, or family member. This special one-on-one time affords you the opportunity to be of service to those who are important to you. After all, there's nothing like hours of winding paths to get the lowdown on how your hiking bud is really feeling. Putting away your phones, stepping away from the hustle and bustle of family and city life will force you to talk… leading to some great bonding time.

Keep out a listening ear so that you can reflect on how you wish to help them. If you feel inclined, bring them to God during this time or share your daily devotional with them. If you are an experienced hiker, help teach them mindfulness and how to connect spiritually to themselves and nature.

Hiking can be a great tool to help you increase your spirituality. Connect with God and appreciate the beautiful world He has given you! Nature will let you relax, destress, and feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself.
