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.

Throughout the episode, Jill emphasizes the significance of leaning into activities that ignite our passions and combat boredom. She shares fascinating research on the brain's effort-driven reward cycle and how engaging in hands-on tasks can bring about a sense of purpose, joy, and beauty. As the conversation draws to a close, Jill shares her ultimate secret to success: action. She emphasizes that taking action, however small or seemingly insignificant, has been the trait that has served her best. By embracing the power of action, we can break free from stagnation and unlock a world of possibilities.

Pam is back!!!! She's back!!!!! Pam Lobley is a beloved guest on the 1000 Hours Outside Podcast. Her episode called "We've Forgotten How to Have an Ordinary Time" (episode #60) has been a most-listened-to episode for months in the running.  In our February Book Club Pam dives into so many pertinent topics. We explore the reasons why motherhood has ramped up over the last few decades, attributing it mainly to the idea that we want to control everything and avoid taking risks. Pam points out that this fear only feeds itself, making it difficult for mothers to trust that there's another way. The discussion then moves to the teenage years, which Pam describes as being pretty crazy in terms of pace.  Pam also touches on the topic of being counterculture without feeling ashamed or afraid. She acknowledges that being a mother is to have self-doubt, but stresses the need to remember that everyone is struggling in their own way. Throughout the podcast, Pam shares her honest opinions and encourages the audience to cultivate a community on purpose, which takes a lot of energy but is worth it. She also gives a shout-out to all the moms of boys who don't love sports and discusses the challenges of constantly having to deal with unexpected situations. Finally, Pam advises mothers to invest when they have the chance, as they will have their adult child for much longer than they had their young child. Pam is heartwarming, per usual. This episode is a must-listen for any mother looking to gain some insight and perspective on the joys and challenges of motherhood.

I love this podcast! It's so encouraging, not just to be outside (obviously it is that!) but just to cherish the time you're given with your children and to make each moment intentional ♥️ we've not yet hit 1000 hrs in a year (850 was our closest last year!), but this encourages us to keep getting out there and keep making memories!
