Research has shown that spending more time outdoors can make us healthier, happier and smarter.


Inspiring you to get outside more often

At Outdoor Therapy, we aim to be a source of inspiration, information and motivation for people who want to improve their lives by playing outside more often.

So what's our story?

Outdoor Therapy came about because we decided that it was time to spend more time outdoors doing activities that we love or have always wanted to try.


We made a conscious effort to stop saying we should do this or we'd love to do that and instead decided just to go out and do it already.

But why the website?

In speaking with many of our friends, we've discovered that we aren't alone in wanting to adjust our priorities to include more outdoor therapy.


And, by sharing some of this adventure information, we're hoping that others like us will find encouragement and motivation to get out there more regularly as well.

Thanks for checking us out!
