Take the 30x30 Nature Challenge and get outdoors for 30 minutes every day in the month of May.
Spending time in nature makes me a much happier person. That’s why I’m participating in the David Suzuki Foundation’s 30x30 Nature Challenge.
I’m fortunate to live within a short walk of a beautiful forested park with trails that walkers, runners, mountain bikers, and dog walkers enjoy. When I enter the forest and breathe in its fresh green scent, I instantly feel calm and refreshed.
Last year I participated in the 30x30 Nature Challenge—and I highly recommend it! For the month of May, join me and pledge to spend 30 minutes a day in nature. You’ve still got time to sign up.
The benefits of spending time outdoors in nature are well documented—reduced stress, improved sense of well-being, and more positive mental outlook are just a few of the reasons to get off the couch, pull on your runners, and head to your nearest green space.
To shake things up a bit, I try to explore new parks as part of the Challenge so I also learn about my city—and I pick up garbage on the trails so I’m doing something to keep the environment beautiful too.
