If running on the treadmill and lifting weights is a less-than-tempting thought to keep up with your fitness goal, here’s something different you can do - get outside and take a hike.

In the course of a one hour hike, you can burn around 500 calories, and the best part is that your body will continue to burn even more later in the day after completing any high intensity exercise such as hitting the trails.

Bonus: Scientific research done by Stanford University shows that getting outdoors is actually good for you. Spending more time in nature physically reduces rumination, also known as going over the same negative thoughts again and again in your head.

So the next time you’re dreading the gym, consider going on a hike instead. Don’t worry about the sun going down early - just grab a Luci Outdoor and head on an adventure - it’s lightweight, durable, waterproof and completely solar so you can pack it up and take it with you wherever you’re going

With just a little effort and some time spent outdoors doing the things you already love, you can keep your resolution and make 2016 your healthiest year yet.
