Outdoor activities are great for developing good personal characteristics such as, determination, confidence , stepping out of your comfort zone, creating a positive attitude, risk taking, and how to work in a team.
It is also good for your health and fitness, and is great fun.
Doing exercises daily is very important to maintain general health and fitness. Then, when you have to do something more strenuous you should enjoy it more and hopefully you won’t collapse and die of exhaustion! :P
I exercise daily, and go on walks and runs, just so I can keep myself fit. Gorge walking, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, high ropes, swimming, sailing, and abseiling are all outdoor activities that I love doing. I highly recommend you have a go, if you can.
The character traits that you learn are not only useful in everyday life, but in enabling you to reach your full potential.
Whether it’s at school, in a future job, or when you face a family challenge your character is what will shine through and help you achieve the results you want.
Character growth is an upward spiral. Your activities strengthen your character, and your character strengthens your activities.
Now when I stand at the bottom of a climbing wall I attack it with energy, determination, and confidence, knowing that I can find the way to the top.
The more I achieve in my life, the more character I build, and in turn I get stronger.
Have a great day!
