The Hudson River Valley is a premier fishing location. There are many spots along the Hudson River, local ponds, and tributaries to explore. But aside from Fishing being an excellent sport, there can be great health benefits for your physical and mental wellbeing.
Fishing is a low-impact cardio activity that can be as active or easy-going as you would like. More than 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. Similarly, more than 80% of adolescents do not do enough aerobic physical activity to meet the guidelines for youth in the United States.
Fishing can be a great way to get some fresh air and vitamin D from sunshine.
Fishing outdoors can increase your vitamin D. As little as 10 to 15 minutes in the direct sun a few days a week can give us most of the vitamin D our body needs to maintain a healthy immune system, bones and muscles while protecting us from cognitive decline. In addition, Vitamin D has been linked to fighting depression. Recent research has suggested that Fishing can improve analytical skills, build confidence, help you reflect and relax.
Fish has many nutritional benefits as well. It is a great source of low-fat protein packed with omega 3 and more. So cast a line and create fun family memories while enjoying the many benefits of fishing.
