The 1000 Hours Outside Podcast
Childhood is finite at just shy of 9.5 million minutes. We only get one shot at it. One of the biggest decisions we make is how we will use that time. Research has confirmed time and time again that what children are naturally and unabashedly drawn to, unrestricted outside play, contributes extensively to every area of childhood development. The importance here cannot be understated. Every year we aim to match nature time with the average amount of American kid screen time (which is currently 1200 hours per year). Have a goal. Track your time outside. Take back childhood. Inspire others.

Carla Hannaford wrote a book that revolutionized much of what I thought about learning and childhood. Movement is truly at the heart of learning and development, especially for children and yet we continue, more and more, to confine them to sitting spaces... in the name of education! If we want...
