Our First Blog Post.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping in. Kayla Kay here. I am the founder of Women Who Wander. We have shifted gears big time; something I feel many people have been doing recently. There are two primary themes that I will take out of 2020 - adaptability and resilience. As a community and as individuals, so many of us have shown strength through these two intrinsic (and incredible) feats.


Luckily - for us, we are firm believers of something integral to your health right now, today. It's simple and effective. No magic pill or expensive meal plan required.


Get outside.


Yup - that's our sage advise. GET OUTSIDE. It is proven that being in nature is beneficial for our mental and emotional well-being. Not only that, you pair it with two feet and a heart beat and (boom - ba - boom) You are now inducing some serious mood-mending chemicals.


In fact here are 4 scientific benefits of being outdoors:


  1. It improves sleep

  2. It can be done by ANYONE (bonus points if you get the kids out)

  3. It improves your focus.

  4. It helps you keep a healthy weight

As an adventure community and particularly one established from the very root of the profound benefits of getting outside with those two feet and a heart beat, I am a huge advocate of getting into the great outdoors to burn off some steam.


With B.C following suit with more controlled COVID regulations, I am sure many people are struggling to find normalcy. I urge you to get yourself and your household outside, take a deep breath of fresh air, and count your blessings.


Together in adventure,


Kayla Kay
