Listen: Sam and Duncan chat with Hannah Alexander
In 2016, Hannah Alexander decided to embark on a year-long experiment with her family: to spend at least three hours each day outside.
The experiment completely changed the way she parents.
Hannah explained to Hope Breakfast’s Sam & Duncan the benefits she’s seen in her children’s development, and how important play is.
“Before I started the project, I thought a lot about my kids needing to have healthy food, and I needed to read to them and get them to bed on time… now I make sure that my kids get plenty of time to play, and to play outside. It makes life easier when my kids have had that time… they sleep better and they’re happier.”
Hannah’s journey will inspire everyone, with or without children, to spend more time outside. Find out more at her blog, Our Year Outdoors.
