Have you ever considered how much time most people spend indoors? If you guessed, you’d probably guess low, like 50% or 60%, but the truth is we pretty much spend about 90% of our time indoors. After all, we sleep indoors, we go to work or school indoors, and our meal time/free time is spent…you guessed it: indoors.
It’s no wonder, then, that the best family vacations typically include outdoor activities. Our ancestors used to spend the majority of their time outdoors, and we’re wired to do the same, if needed. The thing is, today so much of life takes place indoors that it’s refreshing to actually spend time outdoors surrounded by nature and all it entails.
Besides a general feeling of well-being while you’re outdoors breathing the air, listening to the sounds around you, and seeing visually interesting sights, the chance to do something out of the ordinary makes for great moments and eventual memories.
