Healthy and fit during autumn

The summer holidays are behind us, the sun shows itself less often and the days are rapidly getting shorter. We return to the routine of everyday life. In autumn, there is less daylight and sunlight, which can have a negative impact on our condition. Many people suffer from an autumn dip during this period and therefore feel less inclined to do fun things. However, there are plenty of autumn activities you can do to counter such a dip and enjoy all the beauty autumn has to offer in the Heart of Limburg. Check out our tips for healthy and fit autumn experiences below.

Autumn hikes

A very accessible way to work on your health is hiking. Hiking has numerous benefits for your physical, mental and emotional fitness. It is important to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy lifestyle, and hiking is a great way to contribute to this. Hiking in nature or simply outdoors can help reduce stress. This is because exercise stimulates the release of endorphins that give you a feeling of happiness and well-being. You can choose your own route, or take a special autumn hike that we have highlighted for you.
