While many people are aware that being outside more is a great way to relax and reconnect with yourself and the world around you, it seems that many people also have difficulty finding the time to get outside or for some people what to even do outside that will inspire them so they can stick with their plans of getting outside more.

Firstly, one of the most important things to do to increase your outdoor time is to plan, plan and plan some more. For a lot of people, the hardest part of being outside is that they are not sure where to go, what to do, and when to do it, so planning is definitely a key component to getting in that much needed outdoor time. STOP, and take some time to think about what you’d like to do and then research and see where to go and do it as well as when’s the best time to go. If you do this, you’ll find that you will be well on your way to spending more time outdoors.
Another thing to do is to plan a trip with other people, family or friends always works well. This way you will be able to be outdoors but also build in a nice family trip or vacation.
National parks are a great way to fuse the two, being outside and being with those that you care about or want to get to know better can be a great time with lots of memories for the years to come. This, of course, will add some time to the trip planning as you will need to know what time works for everyone, how much it will cost and where you can all stay, but it is well worth the time if you’re getting the trip that you want.
These days is event easier with the availability of great resources on the internet, it’s definitely easier than ever to do the needed research and get out to wherever you want to be.
When it comes to traveling an important thing to think about is leaving early in the morning and especially in the summer so you can avoid hot temperatures and also the hoards of people, you’re always going to enjoy your trips more if you’re not too hot which can be a lot more tiring, especially for the young ones and it’s not too crowded so that you can go at your own pace and views and site are easier to access.
Obviously living in close proximity to great outdoor trails, beaches and areas like that make it much easier to find the time to get immersed in nature, so if being outside is something that you and you family value then you should consider living in an area that is close to the wilderness or has good access to it.
