Rain or Shine Mamma, Linda Akeson McGurk is back to discuss friluftsliv - a form of slow nature. Linda Akeson McGurk is a Swedish American journalist and author who believes life is better outside. Her first book, the parenting memoir There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather: A Scandinavian Mom’s Secrets for Raising Healthy, Resilient, and Confident Kids (from Friluftsliv to Hygge), was published in 2017 to critical acclaim, receiving mentions in The Wall Street Journal as well as The New York Times. Since then, the book has become an Amazon bestseller and been translated into five languages. The Open-Air Life: Discover the Nordic Art of Friluftsliv and Embrace Nature Every Day is her second book.
In this episode we talk about dealing with exhaustion, cultural differences surrounding time in nature, our soundscapes, dressing for the weather, and passing down a love of nature to our children. Everyone loves Linda and I know you're going to love this episode. Make sure you tune into Linda's last episode where we talk about how different types of weather help us develop grit and resilience (Episode #12).
