I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
2020 has been a harder year than most for almost everyone but especially those suffering from some form of mental illness. For most of my adult life, I have suffered from some level of anxiety. This year has made it challenging to say the least as I have sometimes felt overwhelmed or helpless and found myself wanting some sort of outlet which partly for me has turned out to be hiking. Getting out in nature, being active, and also realizing that I am stronger and more capable than I think I am. We all are!
