Health and wellness experts advise that it is important to pick a hike that everyone can handle. This means sticking to a simpler route rather than one that may require some steep climbs.

Check Out the Fall Festival
As October and November get under way, there are a plethora of festivals around to offer a variety of fun for the entire family. Many of these festivals may include games, pumpkin carving, pumpkin picking, and corn mazes, among others. No matter what your festival offers, there is plenty of exercise to be had while taking in the fun. Health and wellness experts admit that the average person walks at least one mile while enjoying fall festivals. And, let’s be honest: The best kind of exercise is the kind you did not know you were getting. Now is the time to start planning your trip to the variety of fall festival near you and start helping your family get healthy.
Do you love to camp? While many love to camp, for most, it is only ideal to camp during the fall. With the weather warm during the day and cool at night it makes for a perfect time for you to actually be able to enjoy it and get a good night of rest. Health and wellness experts suggest that while you are enjoying all that nature has to offer, you should also consider taking in one of the nature trails, going for a swim in the lake, or finding another way to get some exercise while outside.
Now is the time to begin taking advantage of the lovely weather and plan something for your family to enjoy.
