Black couch? who needs it! Pictures of oceans and beaches? I think not. Having someone analyze your thoughts and emotions? I’ll pass. I don’t need a therapist, I just need two trees and my hammock! This has become a slogan of the HBC OUTDOORS with one thought and notion in mind, GET OUTDOORS!

Time spent outside can have supreme benefits on our health, our heart, our lungs, and our psyche just to name a few. The feeling of a nice breeze against the skin, the sun shining bright giving off its natural vitamins, and the sounds of birds chirping or water flowing, even trees blowing in the wind. All the earth’s elements can provide the relaxation that one needs to self-analyze, reflect, and become one with the nature that is all around us. Time spent in meditation and prayer coupled along with deep breathing can provide the calm during the storm. When we have silenced the social media, email is no longer important, and the television is off, it is only then that we are in position to hear our own thoughts and attack our issues with a clear mind.

Over the next several weeks and months I want to encourage you to take the journey along with us as we hike, bike, and camp at different locations within Central Florida at State Parks and along the trails getting in touch with our inner-selves and God’s beautiful natural landscapes with its vibrant colors of green, brown, blue, orange, black, yellow, and gray to name a few.

If you are in the area please consider joining us as we find a campsite, tie up the ridgeline, increase the tension on the hammock suspension, and begin the hang towards therapeutic euphoria and experience the joy, elation, and happiness that comes while hanging between two trees!
