Autumn is a fantastic time to get outdoors and explore the world around you. This might sound a bit odd coming from a company that provide superfast broadband! We are a family owned business and we understand the importance of taking time away from the computer screen, mobile device and even the TV to drag the family outside and breath in the fresh air, collect conkers, kick piles of leaves and enjoy time together.
The National Trust have compiled 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ years old and none of them are possible for a child to complete with a screen in front of them!
Ranging from climbing trees, playing pooh sticks, explore inside a tree and making a home for a wild animal to learning to read a map, these are all fun things to do and a great way to enjoy the outdoors as a family.
Being outside is not only important for children, reports show that just 30 minutes outside can help
- Improve short-term memory
- Restore mental energy
- Relieve stress
- Improve concentration
- Boost thinking and creativity
- Boost immune system
- Improve mental health
So this autumn, dust off those wellies and make sure the only time you use your phone is to take a photo! Don’t worry, your superfast broadband from Airband will still be there when you get back!
