How often do you feel stressed, overwhelmed or non-creative?
Stepping outside to get some fresh air can be powerful to regulate your emotional state.
Since I was little my parents made sure that I engaged in outdoor activities.
I can remember so many times when I wanted to watch TV but my parents made sure that I was either on the ski hill, skating rink, bike or we went hiking together as a family. I may not always have appreciated it as a child but I certainly appreciate it today. All these activities have helped me to become the person I am today, and I do my best to spread the outdoor message.
Have you ever looked at the word disease? I think that when people are not “at ease”, they invite disease.
Would we have to deal with all these “new diseases” ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) if more people made sure that they put their phones down and made time for physical activity in combination with the outdoors? Of course this is also most effective for stress management.
If your body feels better, so does your mind. Physical activity produces endorphins (chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers) and also improve the ability to sleep, which in turn reduces stress.
Going for a walk before or after work, or at lunch can make a significant difference.
Don’t use winter as an excuse. It isn’t a matter of being cold, it’s all about dressing properly and making it a fun experience.
If you start to consciously enjoy nature, your physical and mental health will be in good hands. Of course the same is true for your family and for the members of your team.
I encourage you to use fresh air and nature in your favour.
Ready, set, walk!
