What if you were to spend fifteen minutes outside every day? Would you slow down?
Rebecca P. Cohen, owner of Rebecca Plants, LLC, says you will.
She conducted an experiment with her kids after finding how harmonious they all were as they walked outside one New Year's morning. Armed with her knowledge of the outdoors as healer, she set out to spend at least 15 minutes outside with her kids every day. A former member of Corporate America, Rebecca used to rush inside every day. After fifteen years, she decided outside was a better place to be. Thus, Rebecca Plants, LLC was born.
The result of her year-long experiment was her book, Fifteen Minutes Outside: 365 Ways to Get Out of the House and Connect with Your Kids. And I tell you, her ideas are really doable! Even with one of my kids who'd rather watch a decade of TV than set her toes in the grass, I have managed to wave the book in front of her nose and say, "Come with me!"
