  Relaxing Activities: Freshwater Fishing
Posted on Friday, April 27, 2012 - 09:31 PM (1269 Reads)
Water Activities Freshwater Fishing is a Partnership With Nature. Jake Bussolini writes "I have been fishing freshwater streams and lakes for more than 65 years, and every time that I pick up my rod and reel, feel like I am taking another journey into the mysteries of nature. The world we live in today, surrounds us with many opportunities for stressful activities. There is no other activity that I know of that can take an individual or a family into an environment where the most stressful element might be the sound of a loon, calling out to its mate, or the splash of a jumping fish on an otherwise silent lakeside."

  Relaxing Activities: Walking Outdoors
Posted on Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 02:25 PM (2815 Reads)
Land Activities The level of inactivity among children has rocketed in recent years, resulting in rising levels of obesity and the likelihood of serious health problems in adulthood. Making walking a regular part of children's everyday lives is a good way of counteracting this worrying trend, and they could still be reaping the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle for many decades to come. The important thing is that walks need to be planned to suit the child's interests and abilities: don't expect them to enjoy walking or landscapes for their own sake in the way that many adults do.
