An outdoor lifestyle can be interpreted in many different ways.

It could be someone who just loves the outdoors and spends as much time as possible in the mountains and nature. It could be someone who lives as natural a lifestyle possible that is friendly for our ecosystem. It could be the extreme adventurer that is traveling to the ends of the Earth for paddling and whitewater pursuits. It could be the average ski bum who is a powder seeker, chasing freshies all winter long.

What these people have in common is that because of their passion for the outdoors, they all experience these 4 key elements to a better life.

A key part of outdoor recreation is exercise, whether it by rafting, running, climbing, kayaking or skiing.

2. Less Stress
