The sounds of nature are therapeutic and holistic but taking time to actually listen can become quite a task. I had an app that allowed me to listen to my favorite nature sounds but it's not the same.

We try to hike or do some type of nature inspired fitness. The air quality is better and you don't realize the challenges because the path captivates the imagination.
On this particular hike I told my kamali'i (little ones) to listen. We played a game called: WHAT CAN YOU HEAR? Here are the rules…
- Pick a starting and ending point. (Shorter distance for little ones because it's hard for them to grasp the "quiet" concept.
- During the hike or walk pause if you notice something and enjoy the sound.
- When you reach the END have them share what they heard or noticed.
- You can play this several times during the same hike. Always allowing them to communicate their observations.
National refuge and parks are worth every penny. This one has a $3 suggested donation but it's worth so much more.
The goal is to have adventures that move you. Creating a fit lifestyle takes time but if you designate one trip per month you'll find it extremely rewarding. This allows you to research and prepare for the trip.
I also included a description on my Instagram page and did a mini vlog on YouTube.
We walked a total of 4 miles and enjoyed every minute. This was cheaper than a family membership to a gym or YMCA. More engaging than watching tv and created connection. WOW!
They saw forest, marsh and the Puget Sound coast line. Nature is the only place that will provide fitness for your mind, body and soul.
