Challenge

Spend 20 hours in 7 days, outside & unplugged.

Reform Life , Challenge

 The Challenge: Find and spend 20 hours outside & disconnected from screens (phones, computers, TVs... etc.) in a 7 day period. Challenge yourself or a friend. Reach 20 hours or get the most in 7 days... and you win. 

Why? We've developed a societal norm around an unhealthy lifestyle - living our lives inside & staring at screens. In fact, the majority of us average less than 10 hours a week outside, and more than 10 hours in a single day in front of our computers, phones & TVs. That's only 5% of our lives outside, while we evolved from living 99% of it outside.

How? Make the time! If needed, schedule time each day. If not, spend about 3 hours each day outside & unplugged. Find time everyday, and keep track of the hours to help build & sustain that muscle.

 


 

This challenge was designed to provide momentum to redevelop and sustain a connection to nature. Its scientifically proven to make us happier, healthier and more creative. We just need to spend more time in it.
