Kelowna woman shares video on how to social distance outdoors

Social distancing outdoors

The province has plenty to offer when it comes to the great outdoors, and one Kelowna woman has shared how it can be enjoyed while also practicing social distancing.

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues, if you're not in quarantine, you can still head outside by yourself or with your household family members, while remembering to maintain distance.

Sarah Lauze posted the video 'Go Solo (One Take On Social Distancing)' on Youtube in hopes of inspiring others to disconnect from the media, get some physical activity and take in some fresh air.

"I think we're all feeling lonely and also bored and looking for beauty in the world, so I just wanted to highlight especially within our community how lucky we are to live here," says Lauze.

Lauze shot the video all in one day from sunrise to sunset, spanning over approximately 62 kilometres using a GoPro. She mountain bikes, cross country skis, road bikes and hikes all over the Kelowna area. 

"I left my house at 6 a.m. and rode to Knox Mountain where I did the mountain bike and then I drove up to Kelowna Nordic society," says Lauze. "Then I rode my bike from my house out east Kelowna, and then did sunset at Okanagan Mountain Park where I went for a run and I was out until about 8 p.m."

Lauze is a photographer and videographer who usually doesn't share her work on social media but because of these uncertain times she wanted to inspire her viewers.

"I ended the video with those shots of just silence and hearing the birds because I wanted to just encourage people to shut off their phones, shut off their computer, don't listen to the news for a few hours and just take the time to be quiet."
