I recently read Losing Eden. One of the facts that totally got to me was the one from this article - Three-quarters of UK children spend less time outdoors than prison inmates.

I found this staggering. And this then that made me think about my own time spent outdoors. Thanks to the vLEJOG walk I generally spend an hour or more outside per day, and I know that I need it.The thought that children don’t get this time anymore upsets me a little, but having thought about it, and read a bit more about it, the reasons are fairly obvious. Still sad though.
