Getting outside is good for you! In this episode we’ll get into what we like to do outside in our everyday lives as part of our own self-care, where we would go on dream adventures, and just how fascinated we are by tiny black capped chickadees and mountain-dwelling lizards.
Our challenge to you: spend time outdoors! Find some green space, or snow space, to go for a walk or just hang out. Things like taking photos, drawing, listening to music, exercising, or reading are all better outdoors. Try it! You might find yourself feeling calmer, more focused, and energized after a little dose of nature.
We’d also like to challenge you to try something new. If you’ve never been camping– go for it! Already done the camping thing and looking for something new? Sign up for a wilderness trip at a Girl Scouts River Valleys camp, or plan an adventurous weekend with your family, friends, or Girl Scout troop. You could be spending next summer backpacking, canoeing, or riding horses. There’s also plenty to do in the winter– think snowshoeing, skiing, ice fishing, winter camping, or snowy walks through your local park.
Stay tuned at the end of the episode for Would You Rather and Girls Pick.
