Being stuck inside can be hard on families. However, the ramifications of too much indoor time extend well beyond boredom. Many families are suffering from nature-deficit disorder (NDD), a term experts have used to acknowledge the health risks of spending too much time inside. Children with NDD have higher rates of anxiety, obesity, and other major health problems as a result of too little sunlight and fresh air.
Fortunately, there are tons of benefits to upping your outdoor time. You and your family will have better mental health, feel more energized, and are more likely to reach your daily vitamin D dosage. Moreover, there are tons of teaching and learning opportunities outdoors. Here are a few ideas from Freeloader Carriers for how your family can get more time in nature.
