6. Notice and appreciate surroundings: Go for a walk in a park or wooded area without your smart phone. Even better, walk along the seashore if you live near the ocean. Pay attention to the things around you: the smells of the salty breeze, the seagulls flying about, the ebbs and flows of the waves—but all without overworking your mind. Do it calmly and for a moderate amount of time. If you feel inspired, write down some of your reflections after you walk.
