I always find that the best way to relax before a big job interview or business meeting is a short hike through nature. But when you’re traveling from city to city, it can be difficult to find the time.
There’s a mentality that significant time investment is essential to hiking and camping, not to mention the feeling many of us have that rushing such an endeavor somehow lessens its value. Not true, I say! Sometimes a short, hour-long hike or overnight wilderness adventure is exactly what’s needed.
Life is hectic, but to those of us for whom time outdoors is paramount — whether it’s a relaxation hike before an important meeting, or just a much-needed break from the family reunion — here are a few ideas that will hopefully inspire you in taking a few hours out of your trip to check out the nearest wilds.
