Infographic: The Benefits of Outdoor Time for Students

Students of all ages are headed back to school and, oh, the excitement! Fresh pencils, a bright white pair of K-Swiss, and a sweet new Trapper Keeper...oh wait, are none of those a thing anymore? Strike that and insert relevant 2016 references.

Back-to-school excitement fades quickly, though, once the demands of the school year start to pile up - homework, class time, and ever-important "socializing" with new friends on Snapagram or Twitbook. It all adds up to more time indoors in front of a glowing screen.

Whether you're a student yourself, the parent of a student, or just randomly dole out advice to unsuspecting youth; remember that time outside has some pretty powerful mind, body and spirit benefits that can't be taken for granted.
