Many people love to take a hike. It is a nice walk to calm the mind and also get some exercise. Because of the Covid19 pandemic more and more people started hiking because its like the only thing many can do. Because of the many unexperienced hikers there are happening more and more accidents. Some accidents are more obvious than others.
Get the right shoes
It is really important to get the right shoes. If you walk with shoes who arent made for walking or hiking you will get pain in your knees, lower muscles and get bad feet. Walking shoes support the way you move and prevent that you walk in a bad way. With the right shoes you are able to walk much more miles without getting any injury.
Watch out for ticks
Everyone heard of ticks, but not many take their threats very serious… until it is too late. When you walk in a green area with many grasses and bushes the change is pretty high that a tick climbs on your feet and wants to enter your body. Some ticks have diseases which they carry with them. The most known disease is Lyme.
It is pretty easy to prevent getting bit by a tick be wearing tick repellent clothing. Even with just wearing tick repellent socks the change of getting a tick bite will get a lot lower. The tick repellent clothing is made of a special layer which paralyses the ticks when they get in contact with the clothes. Because of the paralyzing effect they cant move anymore and drop off the clothes.
When you want to sport a new sport you always have to build up to get your muscles ready. When you want to run a marathon you first start with some miles and then add some distance over the weeks until you have the condotion to run a marathon. This also goes for hiking. When you go too far too fast the chance that you get a injury will be pretty big.
