Time For a Stroll
Strolling Through the Seasons
Take walks throughout the year and notice each season’s defining features. Appreciate the different wonders, smells, and sounds they all have. Admire the beauty in their differences.
Tip: Go for a walk during winter in the snow. Take notice of the snowflakes, and the variations between each one. Does snow have a smell?
Why is this important?
Recognizing that there is beauty in all seasons helps maintain our physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing.
