Trekking for me Is not just about physical strength but about mental strength too. well amidst the 9-6 job we always forget the value of exercise and physical fitness but at least trekking reminds you about the value of having a healthy life
I remember the moment my knees cried for rest. my joint pain was excruciating and the reason was my preparations were good but wasn’t sufficient for a hike 6000 ft hill.
But something kept me moving. that’s my internal power which was screaming not to stop till I reach back the base camp.
The weather was still in my favor, with the support of the hiking pole and a desire to reach on top of the small mountain and come back to base camp before time was a what made me complete the challenge
Now that’s time management lesson for you to learn it yourself .
None did believe, just by a practice of long distance walking I would be able to do it easily.
People did mock by saying, “you will know your capacity during this “
Yes, test of capacity was done by the nature. but I never gave up easily. endurance, persistence, will power is all it takes along with physical strength. a goal which was crystal clear for me. it was very much visible.
Hiking does test your decision making capacity. now essence of team work is best seen while trekking .I got teammates over there who extended their hands there were times when I lost the route and I had to make quick decision to get back on the track. I was always told to walk at own pace and not to hurry . well on the contrary our society says you to join the rat race but trekking always tells you have a little patience. of course goal is always there but at the same time you should enjoy the journey too .
I was made to use my resources efficiently. the amount of water I had to drink, the pace I had to walk and climb, the amount of time I could rest for a while are all small things one should be able to decide on. Act of survival is a key here.
Mother nature is a great teacher.one will discover there are many things is life so amazing than FB 😉 we celebrated teacher’s day yesterday in India and for me mother nature is the best teacher.
