New York Times Columnist Jane Brody wrote a column called Head Out for a Daily Dose of Green Space. In it, she reinforced the thinking behind two Unschooling Rules:
- Rule 50: Outdoors beats indoors. (#unrules50)
- Rule 51: Walk a lot. (#unrules51)
Jane Brody notes:
- First, the bad news: Americans are suffering from an acute case of “outdoor deprivation disorder,” and the effects on physical and mental health are rising fast.
- Now, the good news: There’s a simple remedy — get outside and start moving around in green spaces near and far, most of which are free.
