30 x 30 Challenge!

13 Jun

Have you heard of the David Suzuki Foundation’s 30x 30 challenge?  Hopefully you found out about it before June 1st when it started but if you haven’t we wanted to make sure you still had the chance to participate in this great campaign!

Do you want to be happier, smarter and healthier? We do. That is why we at the David Suzuki Foundation are challenging you to join us in spending at least 30 minutes a day in nature for the next 30 days.

What’s in it for you? Well, we have awesome prizes for people that sign up, get out into nature each day, and share their stories and photos.

Besides, nature is the best medicine. A growing body of evidence has shown us that getting out into nature can reduce stress and boost your immunity. And experts say that exercising in natural settings is exercise squared — increasing your energy level and fitness.

While taking time to get out into nature in our busy daily lives is definitely a challenge, it may be simpler than you think.

Green space is as close as your neighbourhood park or backyard garden. Trails, ravines, and community gardens are often not too far from your daily routine. And the birds and the bees (and other critters) are always nearby; you just have to take time to listen.

So even if you are just tuning in today – dive in anyway – you will still reap the benefits! And here are a few more reasons just in case you’re coming up with excuses 🙂

Why should I spend time in nature?
Where can I find nearby nature?
What activities could I do each day?

Are you taking the 30 x 30 challenge?  Or have outdoor plans of your own?  Leave us a comment and tell us about them!
