Episode 192 | Spend More Time Outside and Less Time on Screens This Summer! | Joy Cherrick of Nature Study Hacking

Navigating the topic of screen time as a mom in today’s world can definitely be overwhelming.  Joy is a fellow mom of seven, and she has a passion for helping families put down the screens and enjoy the beauty of life outdoors through her nature study resources.  In our conversation, we address the feeling of overwhelm moms experience when outdoor time seems like just one more task to add to their already full plate.  Rather, Joy encourages us that time spent outdoors can become a natural part of the daily rhythm that brings richness and joy to the whole family.  If you have a goal of less screen time and more nature time this summer, don’t miss this episode!

Join us as we discuss:

  • Getting your kids outside doesn’t have to be one more thing on your to-do list
  • Creating an outdoor family culture even if you have a small yard
