In last week’s blog post, I shared some tips for navigating the challenges of hiking with kids. This week, I want to turn the attention to parents.
More specifically, I want to focus on those of us who have trouble finding time for hiking...
which is basically almost all of us!
Why do I say this? Because last year when we surveyed folks about their biggest family hiking challenges, most mentioned a lack of time as a major barrier.
Parents said they felt too busy, too stressed, or sometimes just too exhausted to figure out how to schedule in outdoor time.
What can you do to tackle this particular hurdle?
I decided to look to writer Gretchin Rubin's work on habits as I came up with some some tips:
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.
