Question: What’s an activity that calms you down?

Mountain biking calms me down because I get to be out in nature. Two Christmases ago my dad got me my first mountain bike. I first realized it calmed me down when I started riding by myself and doing whatever I wanted. My parents trust me enough to let me go by myself, and nothing has gone wrong so far. They decided nothing bad would happen. I think mountain biking is different because not everyone is active enough to ride a mountain bike or their parents won’t let them. I would tell my friends that mountain biking is challenging, and it’s different from regular biking around the streets.
