Wellness Tool #32: Fishing

Simply getting outside and connecting with nature has a host of wellness benefits to begin with. Add in fishing, and you have one of the fastest and most natural ways to improve your overall well- being. The repetitive motions involved with fishing reduces stress, shifts your mental energy to a task at hand, and acts as a digital detox which can ultimately create a sense of calm and promote healthy sleep.
