The state of Utah is known for its vast landscapes of beautiful and wondrous canyons, arches, and other natural rock formations that make up five National Parks in its backyard. Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Capitol Reef National Park all stretch along the state, creating landscapes with unique shades of red-colored mountainous rocks that takes days to explore.

With all these phenomenal parks nearby and plenty of land to explore, there shouldn’t be any excuse for finding time to exercise and getting outdoors to enjoy the scenery. When you’re a professional working in the medical industry, such as a registered nurse, getting exercise often is a crucial part of battling mental fatigue on the job. According to the American Nurses Association, you should make exercising a part of your daily routine.

After a long, demanding shift at the hospital, exercising might be the last thing on your mind. And a boring trip to the gym again might not seem interesting. Instead, dust off your old bike and take it for a spin around these beautiful parks, or grab your friends and go for a hike around the beautiful landscapes. If you live in the beautiful state of Utah, remember, you have something special right in your backyard – you just have to get outside and explore it.
