  • I live in a beautiful community built around a lake. It is 3 miles from our house, around the lake and back home. My goal is to be able to do that again. Haven't done it in many years!

    Meanwhile, I think I will go for a 5 - 10 minute walk outdoors!

    Article has inspired me! - 4/17/2015 2:22:50 PM
  • This is an awesome article with lots of information. I love being outside. I walk my dogs twice sometimes three times a day, rain or shine! :D It just does a body good to be outside in the sunshine instead of inside!

  • I knew I was lucky to live in a city with a lot of green space -- now I know why! - 2/27/2015 10:57:36 AM

    It's amazing what a difference getting outside can make - even if it is just for a few minutes. I am lucky to both live and work near green space, but I am not so good at taking the time to go there!

    I also found that my annual tent-camping trips were a wonderful way to rejuvenate - even if I don't do anything ambitious on the trip. For the last few years I haven't been able to get away - and now I have stress and depression problems...a coincidence?? - 1/5/2015 7:57:15 AM
  • I 100% believe this, and especially think that it is important for kids to be getting outside as much as possible. I have stated an initiative to get kids outdoors after school learning about natural science through art. if you you like to help this program take off, learn more about it at it's kickstarter page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/85766

    Thanks!

  • I need to take this article to heart and keep getting outside despite the cold this winter. I may need to get some different workout clothes. - 11/26/2014 10:58:58 AM
  • I love being outside! If I'm feeling stressed or anxious a walk is better than any medication! - 11/19/2014 11:29:01 AM
  • I could benefit from a boost to my well-being today! I plan to take my dog and go out for a few minutes. I'm dealing with a bit of a cold so I will not overdo--good article! My favorite outside activity is weeding!! - 11/16/2014 12:59:16 PM
  • I love hiking in the woods it is so restorative. The chance encounters with wildlife is also exhilarating. Over the summer, my son and I were hiking and came upon a moose and its young. So awesome! - 11/12/2014 12:02:42 PM
  • Great article. Get out and being with nature is a good thing. - 11/4/2014 7:57:23 AM
  • Great article... live in North Central Florida. It is one of the nicest places to be, except during the hot summer months! October to March is awesome! I live on 5 acres and have a horse, so there are plenty of outside chores to be done! This past year a bug came in and killed all of our bay trees, so now we are having to taking them down. I love working on the property and fixing our fences.. I just wish my horse would quit breaking the top boards reaching for the greener grass! LOL - 11/1/2014 7:47:09 AM
  • I live in a beautiful part of the world, surrounded by mountains and the ocean. I deliberately moved here to be close to nature. There is something about all that greenery and water that speaks to my soul and soothes me, but being surrounded by it is not enough, I need out to actually get out there and experience it. Thanks for the reminder. - 10/5/2014 10:37:53 AM
