Outside Magazine: Don’t Call Nature a Cure-All

My newest Outside Magazine piece is LIVE: Don’t Call Nature a Cure-All, wherein I describe what nature and hiking do for my mental health, how it can be a great tool in your self-care arsenal but not the only tool along with some nature/green space hacks for those who may have extra barriers to getting out. Read now!

“This has become the trope of outdoor social media, but whose life is actually like this? Mine isn’t. I’m always looking for the folks who have something to say about what nature does for their real lives: The people who utilize the outdoors as a part of their self-care practice, whose lives have been changed or even saved by nature. The people who go to the woods to grieve and heal, who hike to stay sober or to not kill themselves.”
