"Swap out 10 minutes on the computer for more 'facetime' with nature," says Finn. "Catch yourself when you are mindlessly passing time on Facebook and remind yourself that your screen saver is probably a photo of something beautiful in nature. Why not get the real thing?"
"Make outdoor time a part of your routine," says Finn. "It’s what you do before or after breakfast or when you come home for work."
"You’ll burn fat, not fossil fuels and money, and you will actually feel more energized when you arrive where you are going," says Finn.
"Change your concept of what health is," says Finn. "Don’t worry so much about how much you can bench press, or how many minutes you can run 5 miles in. The bench mark for health is the ability to relax. Relaxation is best done under a tree."
Commit to ten minutes a day of what Finn calls “Hammock Enlightement.” "Even if you can’t set up a hammock, get under a tree, breathe and look up. This is the essence of health," he says.
"Do sports outside but make sure when the activity is done, you take time to look at something beautiful outdoors and linger quietly for a few minutes," says Finn.
