    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    I try to walk everywhere I can or ride my bike and I try to only drive when necessary.

    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    In the past few years I have had some mental issues and going on hikes and just being outside really helps calm me.

    The first time I hiked Pikes Peak and looked out over Denver below me the realization how small I was compared to everything else has always stuck with me.

    I would like to go to sleep earlier, and to do this I need set a time for myself to go to bed every night.

    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Instead of doing workout routines indoors you can go outside and do the same things outside. You can go for runs or hikes with other people rather than by yourself.
