Get Dirty, Muddy, Happy and HealthyWho doesn’t love to splash in puddles, roll in mud, kick up dirt? Apparently a lot of people. Dirt has become a widespread fear for kids (and adults), and ultimately a barrier to getting outside. But mud is a key to enjoying happier, healthier and longer lives. Even if for just a day, celebrate the mess, muck and mud! Here are a few ways for people of all ages to get muddy.
1. Let go. Wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Embrace the muck.
3. Sign up for a mud run.4. Follow the weather. Plan to enjoy a hot bubble bath (to warm up) or to run through the sprinklers (to cool down).
5. Skip the bubble bath and pamper yourself with a mud bath. They have several benefits, and you can make your own!
9. And last, but certainly the best idea of all: build a slide in the mud.
