Get Hooked on Nature –Ben Klaskey
Ratings: ****

Ben Klasky begins by saying that there are plenty of remedies towards physical health problems but the one remedy that works the best is the outdoors.

This TED talk is about Ben talking about how he believes that every kid should be encouraged to play outside as it reduces obesity, increases vitamin D and helps overall health. He is talking about how schools should give a minimum of one hour recess and kids should have the opportunities to go outside and play. He uses personal experiences to portray his beliefs on outdoor activities. He talks about how kids need to move to stay active and learn properly. He also talks about how people used to always play outside and now kids that are born in the 2000’s hardly go outside. Most kids get 7 hours and 40 minutes of screen time per day, while they should be getting 7 hours and 40 minutes outside each day!

Personally, this speech was very motivational, inspiring and encouraging. He really makes me appreciate the beauty that nature provides. I would recommend this video to anyone that wants to see how much our society has changed overtime.
