Outdoor play and the impact on children’s lives

Outdoor play is an essential aspect of helping to ensure the health and wellbeing of children on the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional and Physical aspects of their being. 

Being in Nature, exploring and experiencing life at different levels not only brings a sense of physical and mental wellbeing, it also fosters a deep connection to the Earth and all that inhabit Her. This is crucial not only for children's health, but for their future and the future of the planet. If human beings do not reconnect at a very deep level with the Earth, then the rate of destruction for the Mother is ensured.

Another aspect of outdoor play is that of experiencing risk taking. If a child can explore risk taking, then they are more balanced and understanding of this side their life experience as they grow in to adults and are better able to make appropriate choices.

Exercise is so very beneficial for physical and mental health and sharing experiences with animals, birds and plants etc is beneficial for the Soul.

And of course, being around dirt is fantastic for seeding the immune system so that the children can grow strong and healthy. Above all, its just great FUN! For children and adults alike.

The outdoors is a place where kids will truly enjoy the simplicity of nature. The children nowadays have their smartphones and gaming consoles to have fun. The children don't have the thirst for adventure anymore, and they don't feel the thrill of excitement. Children need to explore the outside more often, and they should be with the careful watch of their guardian. Children should enjoy running around and playing in playgrounds. Being in nature is quite an adventure and it is experiencing the part of life where we cultivate a deep connection with the earth.
