#OptOutside on Black Friday

As a Chef and a Health Coach, it’s natural for me to think of posting about delicious food or eating healthy, but instead, I’d like to encourage people to #optoutside on the day after Thanksgiving. REI co-op will close its doors again on one of the busiest retail days of year to encourage people to get outdoors and spend time with friends and family. Aside from getting some exercise, you will likely gain some great memories after doing this rather than fighting for a parking space or saving a few bucks!

Fresh air will help raise your metabolic rate too, which is a good thing after Thanksgiving! Fresh air also offers your body other health benefits, like reducing blood pressure, feeling more energized, and improving happiness, relaxation and sense of well-being.

If you type “hiking trails” or “parks” into this link https://maps.google.com/ you can easily find trails nearby your location. Share #optoutside with others if you like the idea! #health #healthcoach #breathe #hike #walk #run
