I had a great time playing in the snow this weekend wearing my fishing waders. I bought them for $69 at Gander Mountain sporting good store to wear while cleaning out my koi pond. Who knew they’d be the perfect snow suit? I was out for hours and stayed warm and dry as a bone. Did you know that today’s kids spend only 4 to 7 minutes outdoors per day? That’s a huge difference from when I grew up and was outside until called in for dinner. The proven benefits of interacting with nature include better eyesight, better fitness (and less fatness), better grades, and lower levels of stress and depression. Go play outside and enjoy 2011!
