Why we need to get outdoors:
There is more and more evidence coming to light about the wellbeing benefits of getting kids (and grown ups) outdoors… but the truth is every parent ‘wants their child to ‘go out and play’ – why?
Because they know it is good for them!
So… what do we benefit from going outdoors… into the woods, climbing up hills?
Learning… We will learn by doing and experiencing… it stimulates our minds, we ask questions.. we want to understand… we want to learn more Remember when your child had an inquisitive mind… all those questions?!
Doing… We solve problems (it’s what got mankind from the Stone Age to now… and there have been plenty of problems for people to solve on the way!
Laughing… We need to have fun! It relieves stress, makes us feel good – When was the last time you had a real belly rumbling laugh?
Resilience… We develop ’toughness’ we learn that most ‘hardships’ can be overcome… from ‘not feeling the cold’ to ’I’m hungry… I’m not starving!’ we learn that we are tougher than we think! – (Bear Grylls started somewhere!)
