Science Proves The Power Of Nature: 3 Ways To Improve Work And LifeApril 26, 2023
What to Wear
- Dress in comfortable clothes and in layers. You will be spending a few hours outside, so it’s best to be prepared for your local area and time of year.
- Long sleeves and pants are optional but they do provide some protection from ticks and other biting insects like mosquitos.
- A hat and sunglasses are always a good idea to keep sun off of your face/eyes.
- Closed-toe shoes that are comfortable and sturdy are required. You’ll be walking on uneven terrain and you might even walk near water or cross small streams. If the area has had rain recently, it may be wet and slightly muddy.
- Sunscreen is recommended
Extras to consider
- Water and possibly a small snack to keep your energy up depending on the length of the walk.
- Insect repellent depending on the location and time of year.
- Small pack to carry any extras or layers
- Small notebook or journal and pen/pencil to jot down reflections
- A small sit pad, blanket or folding stool may make sitting more comfortable.
You may bring anything you need to care for your body, e.g. a cooling towel, tissues or handkerchief, hand or foot warmers (for cold weather walks), umbrella (if desired for rain), walking stick or cane if needed for stability on uneven terrain. You want to try to travel light so you can enjoy the experience but you need to do what is right for you.
