Summer of Self-Care Tip #4: For 1 hour today: unplug!

Get outside, find a book, relax with your favorite snack (or all 3!) to spend some time away from electronics and close to yourself or those who matter most.

amaZEN U is a great technology tool to bring more yoga to more people, but we still agree sometimes it’s nice to get back to the basics, finding peace au natural.

Here are 5 ways that you can get the kids outside and enjoying the summer sunshine:

  1. Create a nature scavenger hunt with clues that lead to spots around the yard or neighborhood.
  2. Plan a picnic and have the kids choose and help prepare healthy options you can all enjoy alfresco.
  3. Take an old fashioned hike or walk and just enjoy the air, smell of the grass and sunshine!  You might even spark a meaningful conversation.
  4. Hunt for bugs and other creepy crawlers and see how many different types you can find.
  5. Build a fort or other structure using sticks, leaves and anything else you can find in the yard!

What are some of your favorite ways to unplug and get outdoors?
