More and more is being said for the healing effects of exercise and outdoor play.  It’s a simple message.  Get active and get outside.  Why not do both this Friday as part of Nature Play Day.  Click on the icon for more information.

One of the leading authors in this area is Richard Louv.  His book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder is very technical and a bit tricky to read but it is worth looking at if nature deficit is a concern to you.  Click on the book to link to the Richard Louv web-site.

The article link below if written by Dr. David Suzuki. It is work a quick read and gives an overview of why a daily dose of nature may change your life.

Prescription for health and happiness:

a daily dose of nature

If you, want to get the full benefits of nature but are having a hard time prioritizing it in the chaos of daily life, try setting a measurable goal.  Dr. Suzuki challenges us to participate in the 30 X 30 challenge.  Get outside for 30 minutes every day for 30 days.  That sounds manageable to me.  Click on the photo for a link to the Suzuki Foundation website.

See you outside on Friday!
