Walking helps counter mild depression by releasing endorphins. That’s why it is very important to be active in winter and chase away the blues – even a short walk can make a difference. It is said that regularly spending time in the forest lowers blood pressure, detoxes your body and improves your overall mood. Let’s escape to the nature, to experience the mystery of the forests, to feel the cold water of the lakes on your feet and enjoy the sound of the wind in the trees. Take a break from everyday life – recharge your batteries! The forest will calm you down and soothe your senses.
