Did I spend 1000 hours outside in 2021?

At the start of 2021, I set out to spend 1000 hours outside for the year. Or to see if I did spend around that amount of time outside, at any rate! I am a person who loves being outside and always spend a lot of time out there. If you say it quickly enough, 1000 hours in a year doesn’t sound that much. But, when you break it down, you realise that it’s actually an average of two hours and 45 minutes a day. Every day. Even...

Even in winter. I used an app on my phone to track my...

Can I manage 1000 hours outside in 2021?

It was a chance comment by blogging friend Louise from Little Hearts Big Love that got me wondering if I could do 1000 hours outside for 2021. I’m not the sort of person who makes new year’s resolutions or sets goals or aims for a year. I spend enough time feeling under pressure just from day to day life of raising three teenagers, working and running a home. I know that if I set myself additional goals, it will be just...
