So true....I have a four-year-old niece who absolutely LOVES being outside, always has. She was a very colicky baby and whenever we took her outside, it would calm her down immediately, at least for a little while. Nowadays anytime we watch her, sooner or later she will say "I wanna go outside!" She loves to run around, play catch, pick flowers, climb trees, etc. (not too fond of bugs though, haha.) More and more I find that being outside helps me too; there's just something about stepping outside, even for a few minutes, that totally changes your perspective.
We definitely all need more nature in our lives. Bring back recess...for kids and adults!!!
