"Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now."
Take the Rewild Your Life 30 Day Challenge
Spend 30 minutes a day in ‘Nature’ for 30 days.
You can find ‘Nature’ all around you; in a park, a forest, at the beach, in your own backyard, and even in the city. As long as you are outside with the open sky above you and the earth beneath you, you can participate in this challenge. You are a part of Nature after all.
Why would you want to join a challenge like this?
There are so many proven benefits to spending time outside. 30 minutes is the minimum time we suggest spending outdoors to get these benefits. Doing this for 30 days will help you form the habit. Lower your stress levels, increase feelings of well-being, relax, breath in the fresh air, increase vitamin D levels, improve brain function, solve problems, reflect on life, improve eye sight, unplug from electronics, connect with your inner child, feel excitement, discover new things, and soooo much more.
We have an awesome community of Rewilders sharing their pictures and experiences everyday. We have lots of awesome prizes you could win and a Guide Book to take with you on your rewilding adventures.

"Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood."
"The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it - basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them."
Charles Bukowski, Tales of Ordinary Madness
"Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself."
William Martin, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
"I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. The ability to just sit and talk. About love, about life, about anything, about everything. To sit under the moon with all the time in the world, the full-speed train that is our lives slowing to a crawl. Bound by no obligations, barred by no human limitations. To speak without regret or fear of consequence. To talk for hours and about what’s really important in life."
"You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace."
