Does your teenager need to get outside and get some exercise?
Maybe a bike ride, walking the dog or going for a hike would do him some good.
There is no doubt that exercise can boost his mood, improve his energy and help him sleep better.
I just got back from a wonderful backpacking trip in the Kings Canyon wilderness area. While I am still recovering from hiking 32 miles of trail, the trip really did help me in so many ways.
I was able to clear my thoughts, disconnect from all my technology and think about my life and relationships.
If your teen is like most, he is spending a fair amount of time with his phone, his XBOX and his computer. Especially during summer it is tempting to allow teens too much screen time.
Helping him find some balance in this area of his life may be challenging, but it is worth the effort.
Consider making the effort to get your teenager outdoors today or this weekend. I guarantee it will do you both some good.
I saw this funny image posted on Facebook today. Just think of all the good that nature and therapy could do together! 🙂
