So what your bored ? the instant reaction is to pick up your mobile and flick through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat. To check out everyone else’s perfect lives, of there latest family excursion with kids smiling away for the posed photo.
“we all know the second the picture is taken the kids will scream there heads off about how crap the day is”
So basically social media is the devil its the worst possible thing you can do to kill time but it’s a new phenomenon. What did we do when we were bored 10-15 years ago, whatever it was it was a dam site better for us mentally and physically than checking the web.
I have a teenage son who like 99% of the generation runs home from school to be online till its lights out. You need a google language app to understand what the hell they’re talking about mumbling away when you’ve only asked them a simple question.
But there’s a solution to teenage moodiness its called to get your ass up and take a trek, mountain bike ride in the forest. Yes, there will be much protest inc door slamming, muttered swear words etc, but add a little sweetener to the mix we can take the catapult, air rifle etc something to make it an adventure.
As soon as your 10 mins in its like there’s that awesome little 8-year-old dude again, youll see there face light up. So if it can do this for teenagers just
#1 Take A Trek In The County.
It’s not about the mileage but aim for 1-2 miles week 1 then build up to 3-4 within a month. Just being in the forest lifts the senses and mood the sights smells are so relaxing. You will sleep better and be fitter your stamina soon increases. If you’re feeling brave master the skills of the compass and map and go off the beaten track. Best of all IT’S FREE.
