  •  Only recently people have actually had a craving for the outdoors because 100 years ago you were working and living around it. Now we’ve got transport and technology, make the most of now, people say. But the outdoors has become part of us and we are slipping away from it. Maybe a reason is that it is harder to do something like climb Mt Everest and be famous for it because it has already been done. When you’ve climbed a peak, or something, you want more so you do another and another and eventually you get really into it. I think this is the craving, being away from the city and mainly feeling free. Freedom is a lot of things and is a nice feeling.

Outdoor recreation can occur at many levels, e.g. from enjoying autumn colours in a local park to extreme mountain climbing adventures. It is very important and valuable at all levels and is an expected component of our lives not a luxury item for the privileged few. It is a big part of our daily lives, not separate from other aspects of our other lives, and as such it plays an important part in the quality of life. New Zealanders value the opportunity to escape to the outdoors and enjoy either the active, social or learning benefits of being in the outdoors. Outdoor recreation can be good on many levels like social, cultural, environmental and much more. QuickTimeª and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.

  • Are people in the outdoors?  According to a Sport and Recreation NZ (SPARC) survey on participation levels in physical activities, men seem to like to get out there and do things like tramping which is sixth most popular which doesn’t even feature in the women’s top ten. This shows men go out there more and do things. Six of the top ten activities for men are all outdoors, while for women, four of the top ten activities for women are outdoors. This means that only a small percentage of women have a craving for sports like tramping and climbing. The reason they could crave these sports is that it is a sport more popular for their gender making the craving stronger. Less women do these sports but tend to be very good at them.  This shows that the majority of people enjoy the outdoors so may have a craving.

  • What might be the reasons they crave the outdoors? Intrepid magazine describes how a woman craves the outdoors so much that she puts herself in dangerous positions like being trapped in Waitomo Caves. Jane Furket was recovering in hospital from being trapped for 10 hours deep within the Waitomo Caves. She was with two companions and fell into a stream 1100m below the surface. She suffered a broken hip and lost 3 teeth. She was trapped between 2.40pm and 1.30am. It was a challenging rescue which involved carrying a stretcher through the windy caves. She was an experienced, recreational caver from the Nelson Caving Club. She put herself in that position to see one ofQuickTimeª and a the most beautiful caves in New Zealand and for the thrill of TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor caving something new. are needed to see this picture.
  • How does the outdoors improve stress?  There are demonstrated psychological benefits from being in the outdoors. Being in the outdoors helps to make people less stressed and rejuvenated. The outdoors contributes to make you feel happy about yourself which makes you less stressed. People are often in the outdoors with friends or family in a isolated environment which can improve bonding. Most people live in cities so being in the outdoors gives people time in the fresh air which revives people being back to basics.

  • How does the outdoors impact on success in later life?  The outdoors provides people with emotional, physical, mental, social skills e.t.c that will help success in later life. Being in the outdoors has been proven to help people learn about the risks and consequences in real life.It also develops life skills such as adaptability & self reliance.  Being in the outdoors helps to take responsibility for yourself and others.The outdoors provides opportunities to work with people you could of been uncertain about which helps working with a team when you’re older.

  • Conclusion Why do people have a craving for the outdoors?  Many people in New Zealand enjoy being in the outdoors. People like Mark Inglis and Jane Furkitt who put themselves in positions in the outdoors that almost killed them seem to go back for more. This presentation proves that people are so bewildered and amazed by the outdoors and they enjoy being away from everything, which makes you feel very privileged and makes you think about all the good points in life rather than the bad making you feel less stress. As well as that there is a bonus, you stay fit and healthy or just enjoy the feeling. Being in the outdoors gives you skills like trust and determination that you can use in other parts of your life.
