There is currently a lot happening round the world, and it is safe to say that there is currently more sadness than happiness. Regardless of what day or time you turn on the news, you are going to hear about war struck countries, natural disasters and other crises. This slowly but surely begins to affect our wellbeing; it is important to remember that as human beings, we are not built to withstand such a magnitude of sadness, hence this is why it is recommended to take some time off or cut off the amount of time you watch the news and indulge in a hobby.

We will be talking about kayaking and why it might be a good hobby for you. First of all, kayaking requires you to spend more time outside, in nature, more specifically in a body of water. Studies have found time and time again that being close to a body of water can have a calming effect for us, plus the color blue also helps us to destress as well. Kayaking can be done by anyone, regardless of whether or not they have prior kayaking experience. You just have to choose a river path that fits your skill set and experience. So, even a novice, with the right instructions, can do kayaking.

Kayaking, being a physical activity, will help you get more exercise, focusing especially around your arms, chest and core. So, you know that you’re getting a good workout by the end of it. Plus, like with any other physical activity, you will find that you will feel elated afterwards thanks to the release of various endorphins in our body. So, if you happen to be interesting in kayaking, you can check out numerous kayak blogs to learn more and get started.
