Spring is here! That means more sunshine, warmer weather, and more opportunities to get outside and have some fun with your friends and family! Many people who are struggling with emotional distress or the drama of daily living feel the need to resort to alcohol and other drugs to feel better. Why not, instead, get outside in the fresh spring sunshine and go for a hike or walk with some friends? Natural highs are those we can enjoy without participating in harmful activities. Endorphins are released when we take part in physical activity, making us feel happier. Hiking, running, walking, swimming, and any other outdoor sports can help you feel a flood of endorphins and will also increase your physical fitness. Next time you feel tempted to drink alcohol to ease your stress, choose to go for a hike instead! Get outside and get your natural high!
