The 9 Best Outdoor Products for Families This Summer




Are you tired of staying at home when the weather is beautiful and it seems everyone and their dog is on vacation enjoying time outdoors? There is not time like the present to get outside and enjoy mother nature. I've got inspiration for you to get outside along with products to make your experience more fun and enjoyable.



3 Great reasons to get outside this summer


First, know that outdoor activities are essential for your body and wellbeing. Healthy outdoor activities keep your immune system strong.


Mindfulness

I want you to be honest with yourself, how many times throughout the day are you fully present? How many times have you take in one full inhale and exhale? The first reason to get outside is that time in nature can lead to mindfulness which brings us back into the present.

Time in nature is a fast-track way to step into the present.. We all need to feel free from the crazy thoughts about the past and the projections about the future. Mindfulness helps us make better decisions and time outside gives us that space to release tension.

There are other ways to practice mindfulness. Yoga, breath work are other ways to do this. Of course, you can stop at any point during your day and just take a deep breath in to ground your body (doing this outside is even better).


Social Media Detox

The second reason we should go outside is to help detox ourselves from social media. Often, we don't have great cell coverage on a hike (not great for safety but very good for your body and mind). It is surprising how quickly we forget about Instagram and Twitter and the need to check our phones when we are surrounded by beauty and nature.

Mother nature is a great and healthy distraction from technology., The more you explore nature, the more you realize just how insignificant social media can be in the grand scheme. of things.


Increase your creativity

When you go hiking or exploring outside, even if it's just a walk in the park, you feel more creative and often come up with ideas that can solve your problems. A 2012 study titled, ‘’Creativity in the wild: Improving creative reasoning through immersion in natural settings’’ studied fifty-six adults. The study showed that four days of immersion in nature, and the corresponding disconnection from multimedia and technology, increased performance on a creative problem-solving task by 50%.

These results demonstrate that ‘’there is a cognitive advantage to be realized if we spend time immersed in a natural setting’’. The researchers anticipate that this advantage comes from an increase in exposure to natural stimuli and a corresponding decrease in exposure attention demanding technology.


You will feel so much better when you detox from social media, becoming fully present and getting a boost in your creativity.
