I feel that being out in nature is highly important for physical & mental health, for myself being out in nature is as big a part of paleo/primal lifestyle as the diet itself
What do you all do to make sure your getting your dose of fresh air/sunshine? Also any particular activities to hone your primal senses?
I make sure to go walking in a forest every morning before work, every lunchbreak, and everyday im off work i go on long hikes, also when the season comes i find hunting mushrooms is an awesome hobby to get out in nature doing some walking & hunting, when looking for them you have to tune your senses rather than just strolling around aimlessly, you have a goal & when you acheive it all those miles are so worth it.
If you think about it hunting/gathering for veggies/fruits & animals you wouldn't just be having a leisurely walk you'd have sharpened senses ready to react to your environment
Look forward to your suggestions

I love hitting the trail with my dog! She likes to take her time, which always makes me stop and appreciate my surroundings. I love to take some deep breaths, take in the scenery, and sometimes I even pray. So relaxing.
I also think gardening is a great way to get your hands dirty :)
