Mountains have forever been steeped in poetry, symbolism and mystery, inspiring everyone from the explorers who wish to scale every peak to those who wish to walk in the valleys, ski the slopes or take in the crisp air and feel renewed once more. These rooftops of the world encourage us to see the bigger picture, appreciate the world around us and the sensations in our own bodies. The mountains offer clarity and a sense of 'getting away from it all' - they call to our wild side and are in many physical and mental ways good for us.

The benefits of spending time at altitude include:
Weight loss
Improved heart health
Reduced stress
Improved the quality of sleep
Improved immune function
Encouraged physical fitness and activity
Improved mental agility and creativity
Improved mood
Improved self-esteem, self-awareness and sense of wellbeing

As the world's population becomes increasingly urbanised, the need for a healthy relationship with nature is more important than ever, both from a psychological wellbeing and physical health point of view.

In the Mountains is an awe-inspiring book that takes us on a journey to reveal the health and wellbeing benefits of spending time at altitude and also teaches how we can be inspired by the research to bring elements of a mountain lifestyle into our everyday lives, from spending more time outdoors, walking on uneven ground whenever possible and enjoying the medicinal benefits of mountain herbs.
