What People Are Saying
I am enjoying gaining knowledge of all the various winter activities. Even though I grew up in the North Country there’s so many activities that I never participated in because I never knew how to get started. This program brings that knowledge right to my doorstep (screen actually via Zoom). For that I’m very thankful.
Getting outdoors is helpful to me because it allows me to take a pause from technology and people and restore my relationship with myself and nature. I work as a director in human services and compassion fatigue is very real in this field, especially during COVID; the Winter Wellness Passport from Come Alive Outside has given me creative, new and fun ways to reconnect with myself so I can be better for myself, my clients and my family.
The Winter Wellness Passport has been a really great way for me to find joy in new activities. Especially slower activities, like yoga, rock painting, and snow candy making. I’m always so go go go with snowshoeing or xc skiing in the winter. I forget to slow down and appreciate the other things and find joy in those. Especially on days when I’m feeling a little wrecked by life. I’ve been able to give more time to the outdoors in ways that aren’t so intense and it’s been really good for me mentally and physically. So thankful for this program!
