One of the big challenges of Thanksgiving is the added stresses that the holiday brings. Between the planning, eating, travel, the extended family get togethers, the entire week can be quite taxing!
That’s why our family has a tradition of going for a family hike during the break.
Nature does the body, mind, and soul a lot of good.
Getting outdoors is one of the most effective ways to easy stress and anxiety. Plus, a walk can aid digestion after that big meal, and can help kids stuck indoors during mealtime get their wiggles out.
This time of year is also a great time to enjoy the last of fall colors before we transition more fully into winter.
Want to get outdoors during your Thanksgiving break but your not sure where to go? Here are some ideas to help you out.
Fall often seems to be the busiest time of year. The shorter days seem to quicken the pace of life, as do impending holidays, and the realization that soon we'll all be bundled up in coats and boots again. It’s easy to get trapped into a cycle of rush, rush, rush and forget how important down time with family is during times of transition.
This week marks our one year anniversary since we launched Super Nature Adventures. We want to take this moment to say thank you! When we came up with the idea for Super Nature Adventures, we had no idea if our particular vision for kids’ nature materials would resonate.
In an app-filled world of games and ironic memes, we felt like we were taking a bit of a risk in crafting tactile, hands-on materials that openly embraced that infectious sense wonder that kids have in the natural world, and the silly sense of humor that adults tend to be “too mature” to appreciate. It brings us so much joy to see kids connecting to nature through the materials we create.
January is a great time for new beginnings, whether you are a "Resolutions" person or not. The fact that it's a New Year makes it a good time for reflection and starting anew.
This January, as you begin to set your intentions for 2018, we hope that more time in nature with family is one of your goals.
A few years back, I was in a career that would make me so busy in the Fall that everything seemed a blur around this time of year. October seemed to fly by, and in my anxiety to meet work deadlines, I’d instinctively treat family activities like pumpkin picking or hiking as extra chores.
I’d hike with our family in a rush, thinking it would save time. I would get impatient when my child dragged his heels out on the trails. I’d try to “squeeze in” family time between work, because I wanted to get out with my family even thought I thought I didn’t have the time to really make space for them.
Have you ever rushed through fall family adventures like this? Have you ever gotten impatient with your child when they are ambling about on the trail?
