There’s never been a better time to get outside. On one hand, the great outdoors are a salve — to our screen addiction, anxiety, (lack of) fitness, and boredom. On the other, nature reminds us that we’re on this rock together, a fragile space that couldn’t care less about polemics. But most practically, getting outside together brings us all closer. It gives families and friends shared experiences, memories, and opportunities to bond. In a very complicated world, it’s nice to have one answer to all that ails us: Go outside.
