Get the kids outside

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 9.57.12 am

Parenting is a busy time.

You’re earning money to put food on the table and pay the bills, find time for your kids, find all-important solo time with your partner, find sleep somewhere in there, AND find time for yourself…Yeh right.

It’s likely you’re feeling out of balance and with good reason, it’s a challenging time!

It’s so tempting to put the kids in front of a screen, either the TV or an iPad and retreat to the couch, but getting the kids outside will actually do wonders for you too. Try getting into the outdoors at every opportunity (even 10 minutes at a time as 1000 hours outside recommends) to slowly increase your outdoor hour bank to reconnect with nature, and your kids. It helps reduce high blood pressure and stress, getting moving release feel-good endorphins, and hearing sounds of nature actually helps you sleep better.

Take some time bit by bit outside, and learn how going back nature is the way forward.

A great little Sesame Street song for you and the kids below and then turn off your computer, go outside and have fun!

Email us at grow@alpinepermablitz.com.au to let us know if you can make it.

We’ll start around a 9am but folks are free to come and go as needed throughout the day for other commitments.
