Human-powered recreation is good for you. Spending 120 minutes per week engaging in any activity outdoors provides significant mental health benefits. Outdoor recreation improves health and wellness by promoting physical activity. The AARP found womens’ risk for heart disease was decreased by at least 30% by brisk walking for just 3 hours a week. A recent study conducted by our neighbors at TART found that trail usage is “an excellent preventative health care strategy for people struggling with obesity, heart disease, and other ailments attributed to living a sedentary lifestyle.” If you’re more into fitness, paddling a canoe or kayak burns more calories than jogging.
