Chopping wood is Therapeutic
let them express their inner Rugged bearded man!
Chopping wood, Therapeutic for him. That’s what I would call it…
During the lunch break, or after dinner, Michiel loves to get outside and shop some wood. Rain or shine, Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter! He is out there chopping his logs in to big chunks of lumber for the fire.
And to be honest, there can never be to much lumber.
During the spring, summer, and fall we make nice campfires in our backyard.
And we are looking for a nice stove to keep us warm and cozy during winter months!
“It’s in our DNA as humans. There is a fascination with creating fire with most men.”
I guess it’s a primal thing, making lumber to keep fires going has been a ritual for thousands of years. It’s in our DNA as humans. There is a fascination with creating fire with most men. At least, that’s what I’m seeing.
Look at the neighborhood barbecue… Where are the men? Where the fire is! Haha, a little bunch of pyromaniacs with their beer in hand poking the fire.
So I say… let them chop wood. It’s good for the soul. Letting them follow that primal instinct, letting out all their negative energy and frustration on the logs.
Letting them be wild instinct-driven bushcraft motherfuckers! They are providing wood. Providing warmth. Providing protection from the cold. Providing the fire which we all can gather around. Hear him roar! My strong man. Gosh, o’ my! Look at him being all provide-
“a genius guide that can lead any aspiring Burschcraft motherfucker in the right direction!”
So, whenever he gets grumpy… tell him to go out and chop some wood. Youll see. He’ll come back a whole other man. 😉 Thank you Weltevree for gearing us up with this fresh and sharp new blade for Michiel to get his chopping on! And we are so happy with this Dutch guide that publishing agency SNOR sent to us, it’s a genius guide that can lead any aspiring Burschcraft motherfucker in the right direction! (brilliant fathers day tip for all the dutchies)
Ladies! Do you send your men out to do some chopping and de-stress!?
Or is it just me?
