Top 3 reasons of why spending time outdoors is so important to families

With busy schedules and the stresses of modern day living all too real, it can be hard to find the time to stay connected as a family and spend quality time together. But, fear not, we have the solution to your problem…

So put your mobile phones down, drag the kids away from the TV and sign-up your whole family to the Just Walk challenge on Saturday 13th May 2017 for a great family day out on the stunning South Downs.

It’s so simple to sign-up; choose your preferred distance of either 10km or 20km if you are doing it with children under the age of 16. Or if your family are all 16 and over, you can also choose from 30km, 40km or the BIG 60km if you are feeling especially brave.

Life can become busy juggling work, household chores, raising a family, commuting and general tiredness. A recent study showed the average British family spends just 34 minutes a day together during the week[1] so we’d like to help families amend this statistic and make a difference.

Sign-up your family today and these are just some of the benefits you can expect to see by spending time together outdoors:
  1.  Strengthens family bond – spending time together and indulging in leisure activities as a family is a great way to feel closer to one another both physically and emotionally.
  2. Improves your child’s development – by playing and spending quality time together not only will you develop the lines of communication between you, you will also be generally helping and guiding your child more, which in turn will lead to an improved school performance.
  3. Happy and well behaved children – yes its true, the more time spent together will result in happier children both through exercise and the release of endorphins but also from good old fashioned fun, outside in the fresh air.

By taking part in this challenge you’ll get to experience the great outdoors with the ones you love, you can either do this as a personal family challenge or you can decide to raise money for a charity of your family’s choosing.

We’re certain you’ll all enjoy it so much you’ll want to make this an annual family get together. To book your place today, click here.
