The Outdoors Is Something for Everyone

The outdoors is something for everyone; there is no exclusive group one must belong to in order to enjoy it. There are countless opportunities and ways in which we can use the outdoors. How you use the outdoors can be as extreme as climbing to the top of Mount Everest, or as simple as hosting a barbeque in your backyard.

Outdoors and in nature you can never create the same experience twice. Picture yourself on a walk through a park. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the wind is calm. People are smiling playing a game of Frisbee in the grass. You may come back the next day and the sky is overcast, the birds have hunkered down for the impending rainstorm and the wind has picked up. No one has come to the park to play Frisbee. The park is the same, but the experience is completely different.

Every time you return to the park thereafter the experience will be different and you can never recreate that same first experience. The outdoors is completely beyond our control as humans and we can benefit from the time we spend outside. Factors like the weather and who else visits the park that day is out of our control. Perhaps because nature is out of our control is why spending time outdoors has been shown to reduce stress and improve mental health.

Because the outdoors belongs to all of us, it is up to everyone to work together to protect it. We can do this by cutting down on our emissions, disposing of waste properly and do our part to use less. If we don’t act to protect the environment, we will lose the outdoors as we know it. It is up to us to make sure future generations can benefit from and enjoy the outdoors in a responsible manner.
