Hi friends while I finish up my last day of travel (all details up on the blog tomorrow), I thought I would share this AMAZING NEW mobile app that my friend Laura is working on! Check it out and see how you can help make it happen!
Guest Post: A New Way to Get Active Outside
by LAURA BAKER FROM ETHOS ADVENTURES
Iâ€™m an outdoor exercise enthusiastâ€¦itâ€™s an addiction and Iâ€™m not ashamed of it!
If you are anything like me (and I imagine that you are as you also follow Bobbi), you take on an incredible amount.Â Between work, family and friends itâ€™s astonishing that you ever find the drive to lace up your sneakers, pump some iron or hit the pavement.
You make it work though because you love the challenge of doing it and breathing hard, and the benefit of feeling healthy and looking strong.Â Some weeks you can make everything fit while others are more of a struggle, a teetering game of real-life jenga where the wrong move sends the carefully balanced pieces crashing down.Â This very scenario is one of the many reasons that I think everyone needs to rest, recoup, recharge and escape sometimes.Â Itâ€™s part of healthy living.
Recognizing that it takes time and energy to plan the perfect escape, Iâ€™m creating something to remove that hurdle, a real-world Choose Your Own Adventure mobile app. The mobile app allows users (people like you and me) to experience an adventure with virtually no advanced planning and to customize on the go as they literally choose between veiled options, such as â€œlandâ€ or â€œsea.â€Â So rather than pouring over countless websites, yelp reviews and guidebooks, you can just download and go!
Everyday we hear about the danger of excessive stress and a sedentary lifestyle.Â This app is an easy way to hit the mental and physical reset button by getting outside and breathing hard in a way that you havenâ€™t experienced before.Â Iâ€™ve found that removing expectations and the opportunity to overanalyze an upcoming event, forces a presence of mind that we rarely get to experience anymore and with that comes clarity and serenity.
Iâ€™m currently in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds necessary to complete the mobile app (Â http://igg.me/at/
