    Reasons to Take a Hike!

    Reasons to Take a Hike!

    1. Escape the Real World

    In our lives we are often surrounded by work, busy schedules, social media, technology, traffic, and so many other distracting and stressful elements. Going on a hike allows you to escape all of that and just take a little time to yourself and live in the moment! This little window of time provided by taking a hike gives you time to think about the things that are most important to you and to reflect on your life goals and decisions.

    2. Push Yourself to the Limits

    While hiking can provide you with an easy leisure activity it can also provide you with a sense of competition without even competing against anyone. Hiking isn't  meant to be a race through the trail between you and another person, but rather an interpersonal challenge that allows you to push yourself and your capabilities. Hiking allows you to challenge yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually. You will learn so much about yourself and what you are capable of when challenging yourself on a hike. 

    3. A Different Kind of High

    Getting outside and hiking through nature gives you a different kind of high, not associated with drugs and alcohol. The "hikers high" offers a surreal experience accompanied by an adrenaline rush. Scientifically speaking hiking naturally increases your serotonin and dopamine levels, these happy hormones  provide you with a euphoric feeling! Also, there is no greater reward than reaching the top of your trail and having the feeling of being on top of the world. Don't be afraid to get addicted to this high!

    4. Good for your Health

    Hiking can be a great source of exercise and often times it wont even feel like exercise when your out on the trail. Exercise in the gym can often be repetitive and become more of a chore than a choice. Hiking takes the repetitiveness out of exercise because taking a hike allows you to explore new scenery, terrain, and altitudes every time you go. Hiking has proven to increase muscle strength, endurance, reduce blood pressure, increase stamina, relieve stress, get your heart rate up, and increase longevity.

    5. Anyone Can GO!

    Hiking can be your own personal getaway or it can be a form of socialization among friends and family. Pack your family up for the day and hit a trail, and don't forget your furry friends because all trails are usually dog friendly so don't let man's best friend miss out on your adventure. By hiking with friends or family you can share some incredible sights and memories with each other that will last a lifetime.

    Top Things To Do After Graduation

    Top Things To Do After Graduation

    1. Make that Money

    While this is the more obvious option for life after graduation that doesn’t make it boring. After college life is what you make it! Go out and pursue the job of your dreams or try something completely new to you. You’ve been in school for so long, now is the time to do what you want to do and work where you want! Your wallet and loans will also thank you for the new steady income, trust me its nice.

    2. See the World

    Take a trip and make it as long as you can. Go on a safari through Africa. Eat and drink in Italy. Go to the islands and sit on a beach. Hike the Appalachian Trail. Go to any place you’ve always wanted to go and didn’t have time to during school because of classes and course load! This can be an expensive option after graduation but there are a lot of work abroad jobs available and ways to make your traveling cheaper such a backpacking or staying with a host family.

    3. Get a Doggo 

    First off getting a dog is the greatest decision anybody can ever make but right after graduating college can be the perfect time to get a furry little friend. After college life starts hitting you in the face really quick and this can be a very stressful transition for most people. Dogs have proven their worth when it comes to stress relief. Petting, hugging, hanging out, or even cuddling up on the couch with your new doggo is the best way to feel better after a stressful day of working or hunting for that perfect job.

    4. Detox your life 

    The trusty laptop that got you through it all in college now has 4-5 years worth of now useless homework assignments, article reviews, study guides, research papers, etc. DELETE EVERYTHING AND START NEW! This will be the best feeling of your life. But your laptop isn't the only thing that needs cleaning out. If your anything like me you've probably collected a large amount of free campus shirts and sorority and fraternity event shirts, these shirts after graduation are no longer as cool to wear as they used to be... Get yourself some new gear for your new post grad life! Lucky for you here at Brewers we specialize in comfortable t-shirts. (wink wink)

    5. Stay connected with friends and enjoy "Adulting"

    One of the sad parts about graduating is that friends go their separate ways, but that doesn't mean you have to lose touch with your friends once you leave. Often the best thing to do after graduating is to move into an apartment in the city with some of your best college friends. This way you never leave your best friends and you get to start your journey into the business world together, which is better than alone. Once you get a job weekends become your oyster! Take the time to plan weekend trips with friends to places you all enjoy such as a Braves Games, local breweries, the lake, etc. Lastly, don't forget about your alma mater's homecoming because this one day out of the year when you can step into a time machine and relive college all over again. Don't think you life is over after college because it has actually just begun, so enjoy every minute of it!
