"Regular exposure to nature has well-known mental and physical health benefits, especially in kids. It's linked to reduced ADHD, more creativity, better critical thinking, better behaviour, better test scores and even a stronger sense of purpose"
"Friluftsliv promotes direct experience in the natural world... It's a philosophy that plays a vital role in Finland's educational system, which consistently ranks as one of the world's top three countries in academic performance."
"There is some flexibility in friluftsliv, but one consistent tenet of the philosophy is that exploring nature shouldn't be complicated. The free air life, therefore, doesn't depend on expensive equipment or glamping accessories that can create walls between us and the wild. Whether it's a rugged mountain hike or a lazy walk in the park, friluftsliv is a minimalist communion between humans and their habitats. And as with most kinds of cultural heritage, it only counts as culture if you pass it on".
