Hello friends,

This week I'm inspired by fact that more science just keeps coming in that validates what we all know intuitively: time in nature makes you happier. So this week, I'm sharing a great article that highlights some of the evidence for this, and how to get the benefits even if you live in a city. And since you'll be outside with the kids more getting dirty, we've got some tips for how to make those clothes last longer! The two go hand in hand! 

Happy nature bathing, even in the cold! ❄️🌳🏔🥶🔥☕️

Want your kids to be happier adults? Science shows outdoor time helps!

Ever go for a walk and find all the stress of your day melting away? This happens to kids, too. And when they get enough of this feeling, it carries over to adulthood. Scandinavian scientists studied kids over nearly 30 years and found that kids who spend time in nature became happier adults. And here's the best part for city dwellers: urban green space counted! Dig into the science and some excellent tips for how to make more time for outdoor play. 

Almond tahini cookies

Folks, I saw this recipe and that night had a dream about the tahini milkshakes at Goldie Falafel in Philadelphia. I guess I need more tahini in my life? Here's the great thing about tahini: it is full of calcium! So if you are going to make a cookie that half-way resembles a peanut butter cookie, a tahini one packs a better nutritional punch. And these ones look both tasty and easy. YUM!
