Find a bunch of adventures, stories and good nonsense below. In this post, ‘Outbound’, a roundup of links that I put together every two weeks or so, there’s a Japanese name for the feeling of ‘forest bathing’: heading out to the countryside to snag some restorative, healing head zen. How beautiful. If we can find a neat name for the bliss of summer potential and how lovely the breeze feels, I’d be pretty chuffed.
“Robin Arzon. Street Athlete. Former Lawyer. Ultra-marathoner. This upcoming documentary follows Robin on one of the toughest challenges of her life- to run five marathons in five days in the challenging terrain of the Utah desert to raise money for MS research. As the story unfolds you discover the traumas of her past and why she is propelled to continually push past her own limits.” I can’t wait for this documentary, and it’s currently mid-crowdfunding. Get involved.
“Slacktivism: ‘feel-good online activism [with] zero political or social impact.’ It’s a refrain throughout the web: that watching a video from a charity, isn’t actually helping. Except maybe it is. This study showed that people who watched cause-related videos were inspired to act.” (via Rosie & Faris)
