I remember long summer days and nights. Catching fireflies, family barbecues, and playing kick-the-can at night with friends. Unfortunately as an adult, I don’t get outside nearly as much; too much time on the computer, and watching the Olympics. Too many distractions, not enough time.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American adult spends 93% of their life indoors.
The website annmariegianni.com advises adults to spend more time outdoors! It will be time well spent helping your 1.) stress levels go down 2.) sleep better 3.) improve your memory 4.) give more energy and 5.) be happier.
