Fall 2019 Get Outside Challenge!

Hello Everyone! The Ordinary Adventures Fall 2019 Get Outside Challenge starts today! If you haven’t signed up already, do that here.

The Dark Wet is here, and you can still get outside! And love it! By now you know I’m committed to supporting you in finding ways to get outside throughout the year and this winter will be an extra fun opportunity to commit to getting outside with the Ordinary Adventures Get Out Challenge! If you join the challenge, you’ll be committing to Getting outside once a week through late December. What are the rules you ask? The rules are EASY:

  1. Go outside
  2. Move your body (Walk, Roll, Hike, Bike, Paddle, Slide, Glide, whatever) for ANY distance or amount of time
  3. Have fun!
  4. Take a photo, post on Instagram or with the hashtag #getoutchallenge2019 and tag @ordinaryadventurespnw, or post on the OA Facebook page.

This is for people who hate rules but like low key adventures outside. 

After you sign up, every Monday I’ll send you an email with three adventure ideas for the week, one in town, one lowland and one for snow. Even though you can do any type of outdoor activity you like, most of my suggestions will center around hiking and walking because that’s what I do most of the time, especially in late fall and winter.

If you join the challenge and complete it (go outside, move your body and have fun once a week for 8 weeks), then you’ll get a cool sticker when it ends on December 21st! I will also have a couple of instagram giveaways throughout the challenge for those joining in there.

Still need convincing? 

Why should you get outside this winter, anyway?? It’s fun! Time outdoors in nature opens new ways to spend time alone or with family and friends. It also provides numerous mental and physical health benefits (EVEN IN WINTER) including reduced blood pressure, better sleep, improved attention span and decreased anxiety, fatigue and depression. It improves cognition and memory, especially in seniors and children and boosts your immune system. What’s not to love?

Looking forward to seeing you outside and online in the next 8 weeks!
