Let's Take This Outside

What happens when we play outside?

We become healthier - both mentally and physically
We become more creative and more focused
We connect - with nature, each other, and ourselves

Let’s Take This Outside: a new podcast hosted by me - Mary Anne Ivison - an aspiring outdoor athlete and nature lover.. I speak to athletes, outdoor professionals, and scientists about their connection to nature, how it affects their performance and everyday life.
