Pardon the emotional TMI, but as I was talking to my therapist we realized that I have been happier lately because we have been camping so much and outside at the dog park. She pointed out that I have been doing the things that have the biggest impact on my mental health. For me, outside time is everything. However, I live in Northern Utah. From November to March it’s almost impossible to spend time outside. I used to go for walks in the snow when I had one kid (I could wear him). But now that I have a 4 and 6 year old (and the 4 year old hates walking and cold but is too big to wear) I don’t get out in the winter. What are some winter solutions to getting the healing benefits of camping?
