Want to get healthier, happier and smarter? Try adding a daily dose of nature to your routine. Commit to getting outside for 30 minutes a day for 30 days in a row with the 30×30 Nature Challenge!
In May 2013, over ten thousand Canadians joined the David Suzuki Foundation’s second annual 30 × 30 Nature Challenge. They took to the great outdoors and shared countless great photos and inspiring stories about getting outside. And participants helped measure the impact of their green time by participating in surveys before and after the challenge.
Not surprisingly, preliminary results show that participants almost doubled their time outside and were sleeping better and felt calmer and less stressed. Impressive results for a half hour a day!
Congratulations to all the 30×30 nature lovers, and thanks again from all of us at the David Suzuki Foundation. Stay tuned for more results and tips on how to continue your nature habit through the year.
