Going and spending time outdoors is really relaxing and quite therapeutic. According to experts, spending time outdoors, especially in green spaces, is one of the fastest ways to improve your health and happiness. It’s been shown to lower stress, blood pressure, and heart rate while encouraging physical activity and buoying mood and mental health.

We need to be mindful of our surroundings and the environment. Let us remember the Mountaineer’s Creed, which says,

Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time. Take nothing but pictures.” 

This means we need to clean up our waste and dispose of trash properly (Clean As You Go). We should refrain from killing wild animals, picking flowers and plants to protect the Sierra Madre mountain range.
