The Wonderful Benefits Of Hiking

Do you find the time to hike with your family? Hiking is a wonderful outdoor activity which can serve many purposes for your family. So, if you have not tried it, arrange your schedule and insert hiking into your to-do list.

Hiking can provide your children a wider perspective of the world. Spending a lot of hours with in the four corners of their room can make your little ones' perception of life, of the world limited. As you hike and explore outdoors together, you can go on teaching them life's greatest lessons.

As for your physical health, hiking can fine tune your bodily conditions. Got high cholesterol and weak bones and muscles? Hiking can pull down your cholesterol level while strengthening your whole body. More so, hiking allows you to breathe in fresh air which is badly needed by the nervous, circulatory and respiratory systems of the body.

Believe it or not, hiking is also key in  curing depression. Climbing up and down the terrains give you wonderful things to gaze at. Thus, your attention is lifted from anything that causes your stress and sadness. Afterwards, you can think better during the day and sleep better during the night.

Why Most Moms Fail Keeping Their New Year's Resolutions

Every new year, most moms list down a lengthy new year's resolution they pledge to keep. They usually succeed in the first week if not in the first three days of the month only. Afterwards, everything  else goes back to how they used to be even before positive habits get formed in twenty-one days. Why is that? Are moms meant to be a failure in this kind of stuff?

I don't think we moms are doomed to fail. We simply create a list of UNREALISTIC resolutions which are capabilities may never allow. Our listed goals can be unrealistic when they are measurable and when they are set to be accomplished with in an unreasonable time frame.

Besides setting unrealistic goals, we forget to condition our minds and hearts to be tough and battle for the very meaningful goals we desire to complete. Our brains and thoughts are powerful enough to command our bodies what they must do. Therefore, we must fortify our mindset and our inner strength to avoid failure with the resolutions we make.
