Getting kids outdoors - ASDA Good Living Magazine
In the summer I caught up with the good people from ASDA Good Living and had a chat about getting kids interested in getting outdoors. We talked long and hard about health and wellbeing and the virtues of getting outdoors, how difficult it can be at times, and what it is that we need to make it happen.
For me taking the first step is the hardest part. Our brains trick us into thinking it’s too cold, too wet, too difficult! 99 times out of 100 once you’re out you’re fine, you have a great time and feel so much better for doing it! My advice is to head out with an intention. That intention can change, but at least taking that first step with a plan means it’s more likely to happen.
Here are a few simple ideas from the ASDA magazine that can also be found along with a whole load more in my book Dadventures.
