Our Favorite New Year’s Resolution: Get Outside More Often in 2022
It seems 2021 was not so different than 2020. Many of us were still working from home, remaining cautious, and thinking a little differently about our lives and what is important. At Stegmann, we know that time with loved ones, the beauty of the outdoors, and gratitude for simple necessities top our list of things we love. As we embark on a new year, we’re making resolutions to do more of these.
Getting outside more frequently is a manageable and impactful resolution to take on in 2022 and we wanted to share inspiration for you to join us! It doesn’t have to be all epic mountain views or long-distance trips. Getting outside more often can be right outside of your front door or a short car ride away. Here are a few ideas for getting outside in 2022 and the right shoes to wear when you do!
Take Walking Meetings
Whether you’re working from home or back in the office, consider taking meetings while you walk. It’s a great way to stimulate new ideas and get away from the distractions sitting on your desk. Research has actually shown that walking meetings can increase creativity by 81-100%.

Camp or Glamp - it doesn’t matter!
Take the tent, the RV, or rent a cozy cabin for a couple nights away from the buzz of the city or the responsibilities of work. You can rough it or glamp it, we won’t judge! Taking the time to connect with family or friends away from it all will prove valuable in so many ways.

Throw up a hammock on the back porch or in the yard to always be ready to welcome a moment of outdoor relaxation. Or better yet, take a stroll in a park, take your favorite drink and enjoy a quiet afternoon.
