    Over the weekend was getting in some of my outdoor time in and took a walk along the riverwalk in Naperville, great place to meditate and recharge.

    Went for a run at sunset yesterday. Felt great to get out in the warmer than average weather we have been having lately.

    Spending more thoughtful time outside has been a great way to reduce stress and reduce screen time, though it is getting harder with the sun setting earlier each day.

    In Chicago particularly, one environmental factor that affects human health is air quality. Being downtown int he city the air isn't as fresh as it is in the suburban and rural areas which negatively affects health.

    Educator Stephanie Kaza advises her students to focus on what they care about most when addressing the enormity of ecological problems. Is there a specific area you feel particularly called to work on?
