Come Alive Outside is something that you do!  Start looking for ways to get a little less screen time and a little more green time everyday.  Whether it is making a special point to spend a sunny Saturday in the park or just parking at the back of the lot so you can spend an extra five minutes outside on your walk from the car to the office in the morning, little things make a big difference!
