1000 Hours Outside

Me hanging out with a crevice.

Yep you guessed it. I Magically hit the mark on October - Friday the 13th. ONE thousand hours outside!! Ironically I completed this in Red River Gorge, one of my favorite outdoor spaces.

I stumbled across this campaign a couple of years ago as my daughter was exploring the opportunity with her children. I decided to set myself a goal in 2023.

The ideology behind these hours set me in a real creative mode surrounding being outside more often. Even in times of inclement weather, I had the opportunity to utilize my covered front porch, winter, spring summer or fall.

Most importantly, in colder or rainy times a 10 or 15 minute dog walk gets added to the list.

Take a look at other ways to motivate yourself and explore Nature. We all know the mental benefits of being outside. Maybe you learn something about yourself in the journey.

You bet your sweet petunia I counted the hours sleeping in a tent this season as well.
