“Could we change our lives to become an outdoor family?”
This was the question Hannah Alexander asked herself before embarking on a year experiment with her family—to spend at least three hours each day outside for a year.
This is such a cool experiment and one that has fundamentally changed Hannah, her kids, and her family as a whole.
Hannah and I discuss the benefits of nature in regards to child development, how children are designed to be outside, the beauty in unstructured time and how nature is the perfect place to play.
Hannah also shares stories of how she changed her habits over the year, potential barriers of getting outside, and how we can easily modify our indoor activities to do them outside.
During the year experiment, Hannah also had a month of no screens for entertainment, and a separate month where she packed away the majority of her children’s toys.
I absolutely loved this chat and I hope Hannah’s story inspires anyone who has children in their lives to do more activities with them outside.
