The 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.
