Active in July

July is a month to be active with hiking, paddling, climbing, biking and there is so much to do in these mountains of East Tennessee! Stretching, reaching, journeying, MOVING. It just feels good. New experiences are good for the soul, mind and body. Trying something new or challenging can push your “comfort zone” and build your character as well as giving you good stories to tell around campfires or the kitchen table!

Getting in motion reminds us of the importance of whole wellness – staying in touch with yourself and your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. It also helps us become grateful for what we have the physical ability to do and be and we can give thanks for the opportunities to climb these mountains and cross these waters.

So this month, move into an adventure or two, or as many as you have time for, and enjoy the motion, while creating awesome memories.
