5 Reasons Why Mountain Climbing is Good for Introverts


For those of us (yes, myself included) who live a sedentary and hermit-like lifestyle, mountain climbing may sound like an activity that’s quite tough to do. I’ve seen quite a lot of people post about it on social media and complain afterwards about how tiring and painful it was. And after finally experiencing it for myself, I have to admit that it really was; but it was worth it, because I finally had the NERVE!


NETWORKING
Most mountain climbing activities are done in groups as you’ll need a guide and such to reach the summit – guides can be those taking care of the area or an experienced climber who already managed to climb back and forth a couple of times.
In my case, I just got invited by friends from an organization I’m part of who were active in such activities. I got to meet some of their fellow climbers and although (obviously) I wasn’t able to really interact with everyone properly, somehow, it was refreshing just to be surrounded by a different set of people.

EXERCISE
I hate to admit it, but being someone whose life constantly dabbles between sitting in front of the computer for hours and lying in bed for hours, I don’t have time to exercise (plus I’m too lazy to do so). And well, I guess I used this opportunity to be able to say that I somehow had a “workout”. Although, I have to say my legs weren’t in their best shape for a couple of days after the climb. Ouch!


REALIZATIONS
I’m not sure if a lot can relate to this, but I realized a lot of things while climbing and they’re pretty much comparable to life’s successes and failures:
When you’re on your way up, the struggle you’ll encounter is one of the toughest things you have to endure and it’s up to you if you wanna keep pushing yourself to reach the top or if you wanna quit.
Once you’ve reached the top, the view you’ll get is really breath-taking, but you need to find a good spot, know how to survive and make things work in order to maintain your position so you’ll keep getting the best view.
The way down is easier compared to the way up, just a couple of slipups and errors and you can easily fall flat on your back. However, once you’ve managed to see what was on top, I doubt that you’d still want to miss another opportunity to go back.

VIEW
This is one of the main reasons why people do mountain climbing. Witnessing the nature in all its untouched glory and the possibility of seeing the skyline from the metro – it’s just a great way to begin and end the day with.

EXPERIENCE
Overall, the networking, exercise, realizations, and views are accountable for what was truly gained from the activity – an entirely new and irreplaceable experience. It was a great activity to do if you want to escape life's mundane tasks, or at least take a short break from it.
