My children's dream
#adreamihad We are living very stormy moments, our lives, our behavior has been radically changed, we have had to take equally radical measures, with regard to our new reality. One of the aspects that we always try to maintain, for the sake of our children, grandchildren, nephews, etc.. is health, and health in all its aspects, we are always aware that they maintain a good physical health, where it has to see the good time to sleep, eat well, do physical activity, take care of personal hygiene, we also worry that they carry a good mental health, where we must ensure that they have a good and high self-esteem, who develop an environment where they feel good with themselves and feel optimistic about the future, we can also highlight social health, economic health, public health, family health, we have to take into account many aspects of the experiences in which our children develop. Considering the above, I see a not very pleasant picture for our children. The situation through which the world is going through and not by a pandemic, but the crisis that several countries are going through, the awakening of a consent, young people tired of corruption in countries, in the great majority of Latin American countries. So, I wonder, if there is in the world, enough consent, so that the great powers and those countries where corruption prevails, can think about the future generational, and environmental, because we are engaging future generations, that is our children, we are maiming their dreams and we are pushing them and forcing them to living in a harmful environment. And the great disease of the world is corruption, because out of there are all the evils that humanity is experiencing. I have tried, that in every post I publish, to sow a seed that is watered all over the world through sharing, that when people read it move a little of their feelings, not so much for us, that we have been here for so many years already in this world, and what we must do, is to sow seeds of consent, but by “the dream of our children”. We are more good people and we want a different future for our children. Sowing seeds of consent, we will make it happen” the dreams of my children ".
Tips for the late flowering mountain sports pioneer!
We know them all: from those boys and girls who were dragged into the mountains as a child by their parents, since their tenth, effortlessly swooping down black slopes, living more or less in the climbing hall and experiencing fierce mountain adventure after another, purely because it is inextricably linked to their (social) life. Crazy! But... what if your parents used to go on a beach vacation with you all the time? Your “fresh alpine breeze” associates with toilet freshener? Whether you've been on badminton your whole life? In other words: when mountaineering is not poured into you with the spoon? Then at a later age discover your mountain sports passion and find your way in it often quite an exciting solo expedition. Good news for all newcomers; you're not the only one! Whatever the flame has ignited, that it no longer extinguishes is a fact. So you better do nice things with it! Only, where do you start without baking knowledge, experience, convenient connections and above all: mountains?! To give your upcoming adventures a boost in the right direction, here are some tips and tricks. Turn on your pioneer mode and let that mountain sport passion flower bloom! Tip 1: Take the leap into the deep - Do you have huge balls and you are not afraid of anything? Then the leap in the deep will be easy for you. Sign up for a climbing course or trail run clinic, book a trip to the top of Mont Blanc, or buy a mountain bike at the marketplace and go for yourself. No mountain too high, literally! If you dare: credits for you! You're a rare tough specimen, so go on! And enjoy it, we don't have to explain much more. Tip 2: Finish the 'tastings' - Do you think in mountaineering, “it sounds like something, but I don't know anyone who does this.”? Or 'I have some mountain-sporting friends, but they're all much better than me'? No problem! In any case, it never hurts to orient yourself quietly and try out some options before you throw yourself into something full of surrender. Check for example if you can take a trial lesson at a climbing hall, boulder hall or indoor ski track (or other place of your choice). Most halls offer this, also for your own safety. After all, getting off to a good start in a new sport will result in great fun and minimal risk of injury. In addition, during these trial classes you often get in touch with people who are in the same boat as you. Dive up your fun new potential sports buddies! win-win! Tip 3: Only = not so lonely - This is especially for the climbers among us. Do you want to climb, but you don't have a climbing buddy even after tip 2-? Look in the hall if there's a bulletin board with 'climbing buddies wanted. '. Many halls offer this service. Facebook groups can also be a godsend. Climbing requests pass there too. In fact, you never have to do it alone. Tip 4: Bomb your friends to mental coaches - Your friends and girlfriends still look at you uncomfortably when you tell about your new mountain ambitions? And they prefer to spend their time and money on (for example) the local carnival association? Then do not bother convincing them, but slowly involve them in your activities. For example, take them to an outdoor film festival, organise a camping weekend or invite them to join us during your training hikes or cycling tours in the Netherlands. Maybe they won't go up (or down) with you, they can enjoy with you during all the preparations. Cozy and good for your mental support during harsh workouts. Do you have any nice additions? I like to hear them! #outdooronline
