3. Take time to appreciate the outdoors. Make a great playlist, gather up your pet, and go on a hike to a nearby spot that isn't Humpback Mountain. While you're there, enjoy the great place that you grew up in. Don't forget to visit a museum or a historical landmark without having to drive more than 15 minutes! You could find out that your town hosted a battle during a war (especially if you're from VA). And if you're not, you might find out that Martha Washington used to churn butter a few streets down from you, like I did.
