Nature and Exercise

La Jolla Shores from Up the Cliffs to Land

Nature makes me high. Thankfully, enjoying nature makes me exercise as well. Though exercising alone would be very tough for me to do probably despite I know the great benefits our heart, body and mind gets from it, simply because I do not have the motivation to do so had I not found the joy of being out in nature. But with nature, I am motivated. I am motivated to lace up my shoes and hike. I am motivated to put on that very hard to wear wetsuit to endure the cold water to swim with the fishes for hours. And each time I go home from enjoying nature I always have something to take home, such as priceless memories and some pictures from my cell phone. :)

Oh before you get scared for us swimming with the leopard sharks, they are very harmless species of sharks that are bottom feeders whose very small mouth are not capable of biting or endangering humans. If in case you are in La Jolla Shores, some kids may scare you shouting, "shark...shark...", and when you show a frightened face, some kids are quick to tell you, "oh, they are very friendly sharks, you can swim with them!" Not all sharks are born equal, just like whale sharks, leopard sharks are harmless to humans.

Anyway, all pictures above from last weekend's wanderings in nature, where we get not only nature inspiration and therapy, but also exercise, rejuvenating body, heart and mind.

  1. The priceless pictures and the benefits are side effects to the joy at simply being out in nature. How can you go wrong?

  2. Wowwww to your adventures! I envy you, seriously! LOL. I wish I could still do that but I have a family now that I have to take care of and besides, I do not have a job that will serve as my source to pay for the expenses. :D Majestic view, I would have taken hundred of pictures and a jump shot too. :D

  3. Its always priceless when you explore the wonders of the nature, lucky to see most of the wonderful places to relax and to enjoy.

  4. So true Beth, spending time with nature has many benefits in our whole being. Inggit ako sa videos mo, I wish I know how to edit videos too pero walang ako time to learn. Hehehe. Have yet to buy underwater camera too, would be fun to shoot K and G with it. :)

  5. Wow...breath taking sight. I dont think i would dare to try that

  6. The same goes with me! I sweat more when I am hiking and I never feel tired since I am enjoying the beautiful scenery of nature.

  7. Thank you for sharing these adventures Ate, I love the video. Para na rin akong nandyan. Love it!

  8. Awesome adventure you have there sis .. Ano pa ang feeling na nag-glide ka?

  9. La Jolla looks so serene. I'd love to go there someday. The hike looks tiring but worth it!
