The month of June is Great Outdoors Month. It is a great reminder that being outdoors amongst Mother Nature herself is a wonderful way to experience the many benefits offered to your physical and mental health. What better way to do so than with a Get Outdoors Challenge? Whether you are someone who takes in the outdoors on a regular basis or is not accustomed to getting out often, we want you to take some mindful steps to head outside and explore what surrounds you. We want you to get outdoors with us!
Our Get Outdoors Challenge
We have put together our own, 30-day Get Outdoors Challenge. Join us for the month of June in taking a small, easy-to-implement way, each day, of getting outside. You don’t have to do them in any order. The goal is to move through the month and check off each block as you go through the 30 days.
You don’t have to only do this in June during Great Outdoors Month. If you are finding that you and/or your family are in a rut, staying inside too often, then take on the challenge any time of year.
The Benefits of Getting Outdoors
- Improves your mood
- Reduces blood pressure
- Reduces stress level
- Increases immune system support
- Builds your focus muscle
- Accelerates healing
- Increases energy level
- Improves sleep
All of these benefits are maximized when you experience the outdoors with reduced technology. Think about it. You’re taking a walk on a nature trail. You want to really take in all that nature has to offer on the trail. Stop to actually smell the roses, or the pine. To really experience it, you have to leave your phone in the car, or at least on silent.
When you stop in the middle of the outdoors, being very in the moment, you hear sounds you could never hear if you are paying attention to your phone, or have earbuds listening to a podcast or music. Those things are nice, but take some time to be outdoors without them.
Your senses open up, and you actually taste the outdoors: the trees, the air, the environment’s tranquility and it is magical. Getting outdoors doesn’t have to be a challenge, but still. We are issuing one. We’re doing it for you, and for ourselves.
