Taking Risks in the Outdoors

Submit Your Story for Next Week’s She Explores Podcast Episode!

Do you have a memorable story of taking a risk in the outdoors? Maybe it was trying something new, or putting yourself out there emotionally. What happens when we take a chance when we’re out there? How does it pay off and when does it backfire?

We want to hear your story for our next episode of She Explores! Submit a 3 minute voice memo below or leave a voice mail via 617-917-4721.

Here are some prompts to get you started:

  1. Share a story of putting yourself out there while doing an outdoor activity. What options did you weigh in taking the risk? How did it feel? What did the risk result in?
  2. Would you encourage others to try new things in the outdoors?
  3. Is there anything you’ve been wanting to try? What’s kept you from trying it?
  4. Would you call yourself a risk taker? Why or why not?
  5. How do you exercise moderation in the outdoors? How do you exercise the opposite?

Recording Tips: As tricky as it is to do, try to forget about the recorder. Talk like you’re telling a story to a friend. Listen back and forgive yourself the sound of your own voice – you’re the only one who feels that way about it <3
