A Breath of Fresh Air: Reconnecting with the Great Outdoors
There's only so much hot tea you can consume while staring wistfully out your window at a snow-laden landscape before you start to feel a little cooped up. Once spring comes knocking, it's all you can do but throw your cozy blanket to the ground and make a run for the door. So that's exactly what you should do.
Hit the Trail With Your Camera
Whether you're hiking a humble summit, pushing through tall grass or strolling through a wooded canopy, getting outside to explore the terrain is good for your soul. Make sure you bring a lightweight, powerful camera, like the Samsung Galaxy Camera™ 2, which features a speedy 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and a 21x zoom that helps you capture everything you're seeing. It also allows you to share your images on the go, thanks to its Wi-Fi® social sharing capabilities.
Make Your Lunch a Picnic
Take your lunch break outside the office walls, even if it just means sitting on a bench near the entrance. Getting that fresh air in the middle of your work day can refuel your spirit. You can even stay connected to work with your Samsung Gear S, equipped with Bluetooth, 3G and Wi-Fi. Because it can make and receive calls and texts, maybe you can stretch your break and work outside just a little longer.
Step-By-Step: Packing For the Perfect Hike
Prepping for a major hike? Heed this advice:
Dress the part. That means wear hiking shoes that have proper grip, a hat or sunglasses to shield your eyes, hiking socks to prevent blisters and protect feet, and layered clothing to account for any temperature shifts you may experience.
Lather on the sunscreen. Mother Nature may be a pretty thing, but she can burn you—literally—if you're not SPF savvy.
Load up a backpack with essential gear. Bring plenty of water and high-protein snacks like beef jerky or mixed nuts. Be safe, and also carry a first aid kit, water-purification tablets, a whistle, insect repellent and a knife. Also carry a map or a GPS-capable device, such as the Samsung Gear S.
Let someone know when and where you're going to hike. Safety first, nature lover. It's also a good idea to carry personal and contact information on your body.
Bring Some of the Earth Into Your Home
Playing in the dirt all day long has its appeal, but it's not very practical. You've got to-do lists to conquer, an office to report to, and plenty other responsibilities that pull you inside. Stay connected with Mother Earth by bringing some of her indoors. Create an herb garden in your window, pick some flowers and plop them in a mason jar on your desktop, or purchase an indoor tree to fill that empty corner with a burst of green. You could even have some of your own Earthy photos framed and displayed in your home. The NX Mini Smart Camera features approximately 20.5 megapixels, ensuring your printed photos are bright and crisp.
Plan an Outdoorsy Weekend Getaway
It doesn't matter where you go this weekend—just go. Dig your toes into the warm sand, rock yourself in a hammock under the stars, or plan for an adventurous few days of kayaking, spelunking or climbing. After you've spent the weekend wearing yourself out, it'll feel extra good to crack open your Samsung ATIV Book 9 and catch up on TV, social media feeds and the news. Thanks to SideSync, you'll also be able to share your weekend photographs without any hassle.
