As we are full swing into summer, I can only imagine that you are seeing many people outside enjoying the sunshine and warm (maybe too warm) days!
Summer is my favourite time of year and I frequently remind myself that I must get outside EVERYDAY! And what is the result? I tack on more movement each day because of it. Watering my flowers and plants, walking around the block to see the construction (I currently have no sidewalks and lots of orange pylons out front) and/or taking a stroll down to a local park.
The people I see are equally enjoying the fresh air and blue skies.
I encourage you to take the time to look for a certain part of our population.
It’s the KIDS!
They have so much to teach us. So much so that I made a video for The Why I Move Project about how my son who was 3.5 years at the time, inspired me to try something new!
Insight into action:
How can you encourage yourself to be outside more this week? Who knows how much more you'll move if you do!
Watch for the kids. On their bikes. At the park. Riding a skateboard. Running in a green space. And if you are fortunate to live with one or two or interact with a child regularly, ask them what adventure outside they are enjoying lately!
Stay well and happy moving,
P.S., I practice what I preach. This weekend I'm out in the woods. Well, maybe not too deep into the woods. But I will be spending some time camping and enjoying the great outdoors even more! Flashlight in hand and my kids in tow to push the limit of exploring outdoors!
