Has November felt just as damp, grey and dark for you as it has for me? With the fall colors gone, the switch to winter time and what seems like a month of just grey sludge I have definitely been affected by it. The past couple of weeks I’ve mostly been cooped up inside feeling more tired than usual. It is so easy to let the weather affect us and most of us are probably not even aware that it’s happening.
So when Addnature asked me if I wanted to partner with them and write about hiking in bad weather I immediately felt that this was a subject well needed, definitely for me and hopefully for you as well. In this post are share my thoughts on the topic, as well as tips for a good mindset and the gear needed to getting out and seeing the beauty in bad weather.
Because even though the season has changed doesn’t mean our need for the outside has. Even though it’s grey and wet outside we still need the fresh air, the calmness of nature and earthy smells. It’s important to make the most out of it now that it’s dark which easily leads to us feeling tired, maybe even depressed.
Luckily, with the right mindset and good gear some rain or dull colors can’t stop us – in fact it can even be beautiful!
