Spending time outdoors.
Is there really anything better?
The benefits are innumerable, especially for children. Here’s proof! I know it makes a huge difference to me personally if I need a little mood boost, or if I need to just feel a bit rejuvenated after a long day indoors. I especially love the memories I make outside with my kids since their imaginations are able to run completely wild and free without distraction from anything electronic.
Lately my older two have been catching these teeny little frogs in our yard and putting them in an old cooler that doesn’t hold water anymore, which I’m told is the frogs’ “beach house.” After a little beach vacation with plenty of snacks (leaves) and exercise (trying to climb out of the cooler), the frogs undergo a horrendous natural disaster (like a “spinning tornado”) that knocks over their beach house, at which time they are told to go home so my oldest son, who dreams of being a fireman, can come in and clean up the natural disaster.
I get to witness these newsworthy occurrences first hand from my lovely outdoor sectional with a big glass of ice water in my hand. My kids can come take a break from all of their frog-vacation-planning and disaster cleanup with me on the sectional and give me all the details of the things they heard the frogs say during that life-threatning tornado.
Oh how I cherish those memories that occur while we sit around on that sectional 🙂 I love that I have a beautiful patio with nice, kid-friendly pieces that will last for years and years. That sectional has a lot more memories ahead! These sure are our good old days. I’m really looking forward to when our youngest son can join the other two in the frog adventures 🙂
So all of this leads me to ask, is your outdoor space where you want it to be? Is it inviting for memory-making? If you don’t enjoy spending time outside because you have nowhere comfortable to sit and enjoy what’s going on around you, or just need a visual reset because you’re tired of what you have, let me encourage you to fix that!
