If you have noticed, a lot of people are becoming more and more interesting in going on an outdoor adventure. Apart from getting to enjoy a spectacular and ‘Instagram-worthy’ view, and bonding with your family and friends in a unique way, did you know that hiking and trekking regularly has also plenty of healthy benefits?
Yes, that’s right!
And if you still need convincing that this outdoor activity is indeed benefiting your healthy, we’ve rounded up the top benefits of regularly hiking. Here they are:
Climbing, walking, running, dodging around the boulders, and rappelling - these are just some of the common things that you do when participating on a trekking tour. And eventually, by making it a habit of going on a trekking adventure, these physical activities can shed water weight and burn unwanted fat. As a matter of fact, 12 weeks joining trekking tours can already lead to significant weight loss.
Since trekking requires walking up and down the hills or mountains for several hours, your heart will have to pump harder to keep up with the oxygen demand of your body. Although trekking cannot be considered as a highly intense activity, your heart maintains a steady beat while increasing the blood flow to your brains and muscles.
Nothing beats fresh air when it comes to cleansing our lungs, unfortunately, with all these pollution affecting our environment, fresh air is something that we only find the great outdoors. And since the majority of trekking tours are organized far from where the human population strives (in mountains, forests, hills), the air in the environment that you are hiking is far cleaner than that in urban areas.
Trekking does not only benefit your physically, it also helps you become mentally healthy. Stress, as we are all aware, has the power to disrupt the cycle and balance of our everyday life and cause us to be depressing. Exploring the woods can reduce the stress that you are feeling in life, and that is why, it is really advised by medical experts that once in a while you also take a break from work, and enjoy the beauty of nature. Apart from improving your mental health, trekking regularly has also been proven to enhance your brain and memory's performance.
So, what are waiting for? Book a hiking activity now with your colleagues or family member. And by the way, make sure to take with your 25oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle to satisfy your thirst while you engage yourself in an epic outdoor adventure!

And there you have it guys! Keep posted with this article as we will be updating this every now and then.
This 2017, we are encouraging you to go forth and explore the beauty of nature.
With people nowadays are dealing with a lot of stress from their work, or even at school and their home, it is essential that we also pause for a while, take a break, go somewhere, and enjoy life for a bit once in a while. And what’s the best way to clear the minds, experience new adventures, and have a great time? By exploring the outdoor, of course!
You might not be aware of it but going on an outdoor adventure has plenty of incredible benefits actually, and here are some of them:
Exploring Nature Enhances Our Mind
According to a 20009 article by the Boston Globe, scientists have already proven that a glimpse of nature has the capability of improving our brain's performance by giving it a mental break from all the cognitive processing demands of our urban lifestyle. This is also the reason why hospital patients recover swifter when they can see greens from their windows. So, if you want to take a break and relax your mind for a while, then exploring the woods is the best way to do it.
Outdoor Adventure Makes Us Fit
Another thing that makes nature a perfect getaway is the fact that it helps you become physically fit. During an outdoor adventure, people need to move, walk, climb peaks, and paddle kayaks; in other words, you need to do a lot of muscle works when you go hiking or trekking. The time you spend outdoors is just like doing exercise. When you trek and hike regularly, you aren't just giving yourself the chance to take a break from your stressful environment; you are also avoiding high blood pressure, depression, myopia, osteoporosis, and a lot more.
Nature Helps You Cope Up with Stress
According to a study conducted by Dr. William Bird - the health adviser of Natural England - people become healthier and relaxed when they get out into the woods, countryside, gardens, and even parks. Bird says that individuals who are deprived of getting in touch with nature have a greater risk of becoming depressed and anxious. By spending a lot more time outside, discovering new trails, and camping outdoors, you certainly would be able to enjoy the break that you deserve. No need to worry about phone calls or meetings and deadlines.
The Natural World is on the Verge of Existence - See it Before it's too Late
There's no denying that the natural world is in great danger of being destroyed. With global warming, climate change, and the misuse and abuse of people with the natural resources, there's a huge possibility that we won't be able to enjoy these incredible splendors - the mountains, the trees, the lakes, the rivers, and much more. So as much as possible, you need to get out now and enjoy nature.
Now, where should you spend your next vacation? To the woods!
And to make your adventure even better, make sure to bring with your Ezisoul’s Ultimate Stainless Steel Water Bottle. This fantastic water bottle can help you keep hydrated while you enjoy the great outdoors.

Every year, millions of people from all parts of the world would travel far and wide just to be able to discover interesting and cool spots. And when do they usually do this? During the summer and winter season.
Summer season is an undeniable ideal for traveling because of the sunny and warm weather, while holidays are also considered as peak traveling season because of the long vacation.
In this article, we want to share with you some of the most practical traveling hacks that you can use this holiday season. Here they are:
#1 For the best deals, consider buying tickets during Sunday
Since the holiday season is a peak traveling time, airfare can really be pricey, especially if the flight you are planning to book is near the holidays. So, the best thing that you can do to be able to save is by purchasing tickets during Sunday. It has been revealed in a recent study that Sunday fare is U$71 cheaper than that of Monday.
#2 Get a flu shot before leaving
If you don't want to ruin your holiday travels, then make sure that have a flu shot done two weeks before traveling. In case you don't know, there's a greater chance of you getting flu at the airports during the holiday due to the cold season, so always be prepared.
#3 Bring a hoodie with you
Even when you are traveling somewhere tropical this holiday season, see to it that you are bringing a hoodie jacket with you. It won't only let you stay warm while traveling; you can also transform it into a cozy pillow so that you feel rested while taking transportation for hours.
#4 Bring your own water bottles to save money
Having to buy water from time to time can both be time-consuming and expensive, so whenever you are traveling, it is always economical to have a water bottle with you. And when you get thirsty, there’s no need for you to get distracted looking at a convenience store just to buy one.

#5 If it is possible, consider booking a red eye
Booking the red-eye home or the last flight of the airport at night is one of the best ways to avoid getting caught in holiday madness at the airport. It's always way too cheaper than the regular flight tickets. So, if it is possible, consider taking the red-eye ticket when traveling.
#6 Take a multi-port USB charger with you
Having a battery-drained cellphone or tablet is the last thing that you would want to happen when traveling. So make sure to bring with you a powerful and handy charger to help keep your gadgets ready all the time. If you are bringing plenty of devices with you, it would be a great idea if you bring a multi-port USB charger, that way you don’t have to wait for one gadget to charge your other gadgets.

Color Run is undeniably one of the fascinating fun runs that you shouldn’t miss participating. This trending 5K run does not just promote wellness and fitness; it is basically like attending Holi Festival, except that you have to finish the course, and run and sweat. For those who don't know, a Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in the countries of India and Nepal.

With this being said, there’s certainly nothing for you to worry about being a beginner in fun runs because you’ll thoroughly enjoy the Color Run. But of course, make sure to finish the 5K course so that you also get to be proud of something.
With colored powder being thrown in any direction from the beginning of the race until you cross the finish line, you have to make sure that your eyes and mouth are protected. Bring a pair of sunglasses and a bandana with you. See to it also that you have kept all of your valuables such as cameras and phones in a plastic bag. And if you do not want to be entirely covered in powder, stay in the middle of the lane whenever going through a color station.
Go in Groups
What’s more fun than finishing the Color Run with your friends or family, right? Apart from promoting fitness, the Color Run is also a social event with a lot of dancing and singing happening at the end of the course, so it’s really a great suggestion that you bring your friends with you.

Have you ever experienced getting your phone’s battery drained at the most critical time? Like when you are at the airport meeting someone or when you got lost while on a sight-seeing trip and you badly need to make a phone call? These situations actually happen, that’s why it is important that you always save your phone’s battery life in case of emergency.

To do this, go to Settings> Battery, you will then see an organized breakdown of what's sucking your phone's battery. If ever you see an app that you do not use often, uninstall it.
Turn Your Phone's Unnecessary Hardware Radios Off
Hardware radios such as WiFi, GPS, NFC, LTE, and Bluetooth are extremely helpful; it let us do a lot of things with our phone. But do we need to turn all of them 24/7?
Among these five hardware radios, GPS has the largest power drain, so by turning it off for a few hours, you'll instantly notice fast battery drain on your phone. When not in use, make sure that that turn them off; this will really keep your battery life boosted.
Update the Apps You've Installed

And just to make sure that all apps on your phone are updated, check them manually on your Apple Store or Google Play.
Although you have configured your apps to update automatically, there are still several apps that need to be updated manually, so you have to check them one by one.
Additional Tip: To ensure that your battery doesn't drain unexpectedly, always bring with you a charger with you. And for your convenient, make sure that it’s a multi-port USB charger. That way, you can also charge your other devices using only one plug.
