Are you looking for somewhere to visit in the United States that has more panoramic views than many other locations in the country? Do you need some peace and quiet, as well as enjoying fresh air? Then the answer is to visit the Havasupai tribal region of the country (they have this amazing havasupai waterfalls). This area covers thousands of square miles, and is located in northwestern Arizona, just a couple of hours drive from Las Vegas. What makes this reservation so famous is that the Grand Canyon runs through it, along with all of its natural features.

The area itself is mostly desert, but even so, it hosts so many varieties of flora that a nature lover will find plenty to keep them happy. There are also plenty of living creatures around such as snakes, lizards, squirrels, and insects. These are all a sideline to the main event, which is the canyon itself. The Havasupai are the people who have built a walkway over the canyon that has a glass floor. Not everyone is comfortable walking on to it, but it is perfectly safe. The views from this walkway will stay with the visitor forever. Although there is a charge to use this, it is one of those things that most people will only do once in their life.

For those who are looking for a bit more to do in this region, then there are many hiking trails that go into the wilderness. A number of them end at some of the best waterfalls that the US has to offer. The waters are a clear azure blue, and this is thanks to the minerals which are naturally dissolved in the water. Although some of the falls mean walking for a few miles, upon arrival it is quickly realized that all of the effort was worth it.

Examples of Health and Fitness Advice that Turned Out to be Wrong

Over the years, we have learned a lot about health and fitness. Many of the things that we were told when we were younger are now known to be wrong. One example of this is the idea that if you want to get lean, do cardio, if you want to get bulky, lift weights. Another example is the idea that lifting heavy weights for low reps will make you stronger and add muscle mass, while lifting moderate weights for high reps is ‘toning’.

These health and fitness ideas are misguided, and they came from the way that bodybuilders, when they were preparing for a contest, would lift lighter weights because they were running a calorie deficit and didn’t have the energy to lift heavy weights.

Both of these are things that will improve your health and your body composition, and will help you to lose weight if you need to. Cardio is good for your heart, and resistance training is good for building bone density and improving your muscle mass. Both will help you with general fitness, making you better able to cope with the challenges of the day.
A lot of diet advice that gets thrown around is outdated too. The idea that fats are bad, for example, comes from decades old studies that have since been shown to be inaccurate. If you eat a diet that includes plenty of protein, some complex carbohydrates and some fat, then you will be fine, and you will get most of the nutrition you need on a daily basis. Even sugar isn’t going to do you a lot of harm if enjoyed in moderation.
