What to Wear When Hiking

Hiking and being out in nature always has a positive effect on my mood and physical well being. It is interesting to discover that the items of clothing and the color of your clothing also have an effect. For instance, wearing vibrant colorful pink sweatshirts can help you to feel full of energy, whereas soft blue ones usually have a more serene effect on one’s mood.
You should always be properly prepared when you go hiking. Not only do you have to worry about taking enough refreshments with you, but the clothing you pack when going on a hike and the clothing that you wear are vitally important. Something you may want to take into consideration is that the weather changes throughout the day, so it is advisable to think ahead and to always be prepared.
My advice is to wear clothing that is designed to absorb perspiration. Sweatshirts were originally designed to do just this, so it makes sense for you to pack a comfortable sweatshirt when you go off on a hike. Perhaps you should choose one that is bright, to help others to spot you should you get into trouble. The best bright colors are orange, yellow and shocking pink. Another option to consider for a hike is to wear a sleeveless sweatshirt so that you do not get too hot. However never forget to pack your warm crewneck sweatshirt or a hooded sweatshirt just in case the weather turns and it becomes cold or even starts to rain.
Always wear comfortable hiking boots that are non-slip together with thick socks so that you do not get blisters and keep your feet dry and warm. Don’t forget to wear loads of sunscreen and to take a hat or a cap along to keep the sun from burning your skin.
