100 Hours Outside Challenge

Outside Challenges

I have a really fun challenge pack to share with you. If you have been longing for more time outside, this could be a great challenge for you and your family.

Time outdoors can take on many forms. From outdoor sports to short bursts of time spent doing activities outside, this challenge will look different for every family, couple or person. The challenge will work for just about any group – from moms with kids to extended families to solo challengers!

Check out the ideas below and grab out printable pack for the idea list and tracker page.

Also, keep in mind that your time outside can be planned or completely spontaneous! Store a blanket in your car so you are always prepared for an impromptu moment to relax in the sun!

Benefits to Time Outside

I’ll admit it: I spend a lot of time indoors. Almost all of my work on my websites takes place indoors and so my weekdays are typically spent in the house. My screen time tends to add up and nature time is a great way to get a break from screens and tech.

I also really don’t enjoy extreme temperatures. Therefore the heat and oppressive humidity during summer and the frigid cold during the winter also tend to drive me inside.

However. I know how many health benefits come from spending time in the outdoors! This time is beneficial for both my mental and physical well-being! So it is in that spirit that I do try to get outside daily, even if just for a few minutes (this is especially true in spring and fall).

There are definitely many benefits of spending some time outside.

  1. Thanks for inspiring us to all spend more time outdoors. Like you, I enjoy fresh air and acitivities outside. I spend time gardening, watching the birds, and watching for butterflies. I try to entice monarchs to our yard and plant asclepias tuberosa. I love to see the butterflies eat from many of my flowers. I love picnics and Mother Nature. I’ve printed out your ideas so I can try to incorporae more of them in my everyday life.
