  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Healing and Renewal Go for a Daily Walk Outside
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    I find making time to take a walk helps me clear my head and refocus. It also helps with stress and anxiety.
