Problems In America: Lack Of Interest In The Outdoors

IMG_2994

Maybe it’s the increase in smartphone usage or the fact that our society is over scheduled, over booked, over committed, and under rested, but nobody is spending nearly enough time in the outdoors. Being active in the outdoors can actually reduce stress and help you relax, something americans could definitely use. Recent studies have reinforced this ideology. Going for a twenty minute walk can change the mood of your entire week. If you went for a short hike with a loved one and had a picnic you’d be 100% more likely to have a stress free weekend than if you stayed inside playing angry birds.
