You probably already know that hiking just a few steps in a forest calms your mind. With your everyday life at home and your mobile phone sleeping in flight mode at the bottom of your rucksack, you head out into the countryside. Out in the middle of nature, your ideas suddenly start to come to the surface. Out here, beside a stream or forest lake, you find solutions to the little stress triggers and problems of your daily life.
Between the towering trees, you develop a plan for the coming year. At the sight of a wide view, you flick a switch and come up with an idea. Clearly, nature inspires us time and time again. Whether you prefer to hike alone or with your family or friends, you’ve probably experienced that you get the very best ideas while hiking. Without everyday thoughts consuming your thoughts, your mind finally has the space to unwind.
