30 x 30 Nature Challenge

David SuzukiThe David Suzuki Foun­da­tion pub­lishes great arti­cles about how to improve your well-being. One recent arti­cle about stress reminded us about how lucky we are as raft guides to be work­ing in the great outdoors.

Did you know that “sit­ting is the smok­ing of our gen­er­a­tion,” accord­ing to some recent stud­ies? Long hours at sit-down jobs and school is dam­ag­ing our health. But, par­don the pun, you don’t have to take this bad news sit­ting down.

You can greatly relieve stress lev­els by com­mit­ting to add nature back into your daily rou­tine. David Suzuki has a great chal­lenge that will actu­ally help you intro­duce activ­ity in nature. It’s called the 30 x 30 Chal­lenge.

When you sign up for the chal­lenge, you get the sup­port of the Suzuki Foun­da­tion in help­ing to moti­vate you and your fam­ily by shar­ing your diary of activ­i­ties, sub­mit­ting your pho­tos & shar­ing great tips for inspiration.

We’re pretty lucky in Jasper because we’re sur­rounded by nature, bike paths, hik­ing trails, rivers, Mar­mot Basin Ski Hill and a com­mu­nity that is com­mit­ted to an active lifestyle. But, if you take the 30 x 30 chal­lenge, chance are that you’ll dis­cover loads of nature’s gems in your own community.

Have fun!
