All work and no play… never a good recipe for success! Especially today, when work follows us everywhere we go. Your mobile phone, your tablet, your laptop, home office, business office, car, dinner table, walking the dog…
That’s why it’s such a pleasure to speak with so many company executives and municipal leaders who are all emphasizing the importance of health and wellness for their staff and the communities they live in and do business in. One of the most talked-about topics is outdoor recreation – specifically, the lure of trail systems. Often these are built along the site of old railway tracks that have been removed and the paths repurposed to accommodate hiking, biking, and strolling enthusiasts.
These rail trails are a welcome breath of fresh air – literally – and not only offer beautiful scenery but also a chance to step back in history. To discover the remnants of an area’s heritage and roots in a fabulous natural environment where you can take a deep breath and ponder the present and future. No Wi-Fi here, so tuck your phone away and relish the time away!
