Active outdoor activities can change your career and your life, says Danny Twilley< < Back to
West Virginia University Assistant Dean Danny Twilley is passionate about encouraging people to spend time outdoors. In this episode, Danny says research shows that active outdoor leisure can support creativity and a sense of connection, as well as health and happiness. He says getting outside can help you recover from work stress, promote well-being and stimulate learning. Even taking a 20-minute walk in a city park can help you unwind.
Danny also describes how the Smith Outdoor Economic Development Collaborative is building on West Virginia’s rivers, mountain trails and other natural attractions to convince savvy remote workers to move to the state. And Danny talks about job opportunities developing across the U.S. as a result of the growing interest in spending more time outside.
