Give the Gift of Being Outside This Christmas
In this fast-paced world, we’re living in, it seems we can go days and not get fresh air. I know if I go days cooped up inside when I do finally get time to take a walk outdoors I feel so much better. If being outside can improve my mental state and overall health, I have to believe that it will have the same effect on my kids!
There are so many benefits to being outdoors. It’s been proven scientifically; being outdoors helps our mood, our health, gives us vitamins we need, and it provides natural aromatherapy! We pay big bucks for bottles of things we can get for free – we just have to make time to step outside! There have been many times with me and my kids, we get frustrated with homework, work, or just in general. When we take time to step aside and go spend 15 minutes outdoors, we regain focus and our frustrations melt away. The situation that frustrated us may not change, but the way we handle that situation can.
With gaming systems, TV, social media and so much more all vying for our kids attention, they need something to make the outdoors more attractive. Unfortunately so many of our kids don’t know how to simply stop and smell the roses.
We have bikes, a trampoline, a basketball goal, and more to keep my kids active and enjoying the outdoors, and they do. But some days we still find ourselves “bored”. If you’ve been a parent for any amount of time, I’m sure you can empathize. If you’re looking for a new way to bring excitement outdoors – here’s what we’ve been doing to enjoy some fresh air these days.
The latest and greatest scooter from Razor has brought hours of outdoor fun this winter season! It comes in a variety of colors that are all super cute. The Pocket Mod is proving to get all three of my kiddos outdoors on a very regular basis. For this reason alone I give it 5 stars!
With a good battery life and going up to 15 mph I suspect the Pocket Mod will be seeing lots of action from some teenagers in NC.
