Fresh air helps kids breathe easier.

Let’s face it. The last year has taken a toll on all of us, especially our kids. Now more than ever, it’s important for kids to get outside for a quick, stress-relieving nature break. The good news is, just 20 minutes outside can work wonders for their mental health.

Nature is the ultimate
stress reliever.

We’ve always known being outside is great for kids’ well-being. But a recent study shows that spending as few as 20 minutes in your backyard, local park or nearest green space can help significantly reduce kids’ stress and anxiety levels.

GOCO and Children’s Hospital Colorado are partnering to help keep kids healthy.

We’re teaming up with Children’s Hospital Colorado to help spread the word to parents about the importance of making sure kids get a healthy amount of outdoor playtime.

“Research shows that kids who spent more time in green spaces growing up had lower rates of mental illness as adults. So that’s what I tell parents: what you do now with your kids outdoors will protect them throughout their lives.”
