  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    I feel I am personally on the opposite side of that Paradyme. The majority of my screen time is at work; however, I have still traded some of my evening news, and TV watching time (much of which included Surfing on my phone) for outdoor evening gardening and reflecting on day's events while listening to radio news and trying to be more active!

    Although daily check-ins and posting are not something I am in the habit of doing, and still find to be an inconvenience, I have found merit in some daily reflection time. Mainly late afternoon and evenings in our newly planted garden and discussing eco habits learned or shared from others... Not only makes me see the merit in the habit but makes me feel selfish for resisting the shares consistently.  I true growth opportunity for me.

    How can spending more time outdoors enhance your sense of place? Was there a new place in your region that was exciting to learn about and visit?
