These days you probably heard about the well-publicised research referring to the phenomenal advantages of spending time in nature.
“Vitamin N” has been proven to reduce anxiety, reduce the chances of depressive disorders, reduce weight problems, improve the body's defence mechanism, and improve intellectual abilities.
You may have even heard that most of thesesame focus-improving, mood-lifting,health-supporting, frustration-calming advantages apply to kids too. Spending some time in nature has been proven to reduce the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. And beyond all these concrete effects, kids who frequently spend time in the outdoors report sensations of greater freedom, confidence, wonder, awe, joy, mystery, and peace.
There are ways we can add nature into our kid’s lives to reap the benefits mentioned above.
Sing and Read About Nature with Your Child
Do you want to inspire and encourage your child?
Sing the outside songs with your child in any recreational park or outdoor space to enjoy the touch of nature. You can get nature songs from a plethora of YouTube channels.Download those videos and sing the new one everytime you head outside with your child. Such songs will make your child build new relationships with nature.
You can also read books that are colourful with adventure and naturelanguage; you can get these books from your local librarybuy some from Amazon.
Refrain from the need to micromanage the child’s experience in nature.
Put aside “teaching times,” be there and observe.
Find a place near a creek or pond and encourage your kid to observe. If you're quiet and still, you will observe nature without distraction; the colourful frogs will appear at the edge of the creek or pond, the squirrels and birds will start to return to their work. If you're with a young kid, follow his/her lead. Let the kid dig in the mud and explore underneath stones.
Get A Free Time for Unstructured Outdoor Play
Research from the Kaiser Family Foundation discovered that children between eight and eighteen are spending at least 7.6 hours a day on their electronic devices and games - that is 50 hours a week.
If this is the case, we can certainly reduce their screen time and try to replace it with nature exploration and being outside with no agenda.
Try to Get Organized
If your kid is interested in exploring nature with other people, strongly encourage him/her to get involved in the neighbourhood or local community. Find a garden, creek or field, to revive and encourage your kid to become a dynamic individual in protecting it. Getting your all family members (or local community) involved is even better.
