We are #healthybynature

#healthybynature is a community passionate about building healthier and happier lives. There is an overwhelming amount of research that shows us how important it is to connect to nature, and disconnect from screens. We started #healthybynature because we know how challenging it can be to get outside & unplugged. We want to help make it easier to get outside, and share these awesome experiences! 

If you need to unplug and reconnect, or if you need to recharge and find some calm, we've got your back.

Do you need ideas, activities or events to get outside? Are you looking for an easy & awesome way to get your kids connected to nature? Or maybe you want to read more about the research around the health benefits of nature? Let us do the work. So you can get back to the important things, like spending quality time with your family, your friends, or just yourself.

Do you wish it was easier to get connected to nature? Ever feel like you need to unplug and reconnect?

We do. 

#healthybynature is outside & unplugged

Access to active play in nature and outdoors—with its risks—is essential for healthy child development. We recommend increasing children’s opportunities for self-directed play outdoors in all settings—at home, at school, in child care, the community and nature.
