We’re Becoming an Indoor Species

Spending time in nature is one of the most important things we can do for our mental health and wellbeing. Yet so many people are becoming indoor species. Wherever you live, whoever you’re with, whatever the weather; get outside, take a breath and reconnect with nature.

The average child spends 5 to 6 minutes outside less than a convict.

We are becoming an indoor species. 

And that lack of connection and disconnect between nature and between who we are is profound. And when that happens, it creates poor mental health. We don’t feel this same, we don’t feel we matter. And we do matter.

And so my work moving forward into helping people now be able to put their mind where they want, when they want, for as long as they want is all about exploring that inner world. 

The inner world of ourselves and how we think. 

That’s where I’m spending the rest of my journey, the rest of my life.
