The Great Outdoor Challenge

The seasons are changing! Winter is over and spring is here, and summer is on it’s way.  It’s time to get out and enjoy the sunshine and get some vitamin D.

According to the Havard Health Letter being outdoors improves your health! Vitamin D levels rise, you’ll get more exercise, concentration will improve, healing will happen faster and you’ll be happier. Mind Body Green also has a great article talking about the benefits of the Japanese practice “Forest Bathing” (no nakedness in the woods required!).

This week’s challenge is an easy one, we want you to get outside and into your natural element! This can be a walk through the park, a picnic, camping, bike ride, reading a book in the sunshine on your front lawn, gardening, visiting the farmer’s market, or even watching the sunset/sunrise with a good friend or family member – anything outdoors and it’s completely up to you!

Do these two outdoor activities to receive full points.
