The importance of getting outside

Outside is where the meat of our life lies.

Serial explorer Ben Saunders wants us to go outside! Not because it’s always pleasant and happy, but because that’s where the meat of life is, “the juice that we can suck out of our hours and days.”

Spending time outside is one of the surest ways to mental well-being and happiness dependent, of course, on where exactly you are and why you are outside.  Waiting for the delayed 14.35 service to Norwich on a deserted platform in the wind and rain in February may not immediately conjure up feelings of serenity and bliss.

Saunders takes his outside adventures to the extreme so who better to extol their virtues.
