Go on a purposeful nature walk, either by yourself, or with your children or partner.

Make it purposeful by deliberately choosing a pretty park or area in your neighborhood, dressing appropriately, and not making it about fitness or anything else. Disregard your step counter.

Walk, listen with your ears, look with your eyes.
