Most mornings, I take Cleo out for a walk in the woods near our house. It’s my best way of being active during a day otherwise spent sitting on my ass, and I really enjoy the quiet time.

The other day I saw my first salmonberry of the season (they’re like raspberries but not nearly as delicious) and I took a photo of it. From then, my walk became an exercise in noticing small details I usually walk right by, lost in thought. It was refreshing to pay such close attention, and I found myself smiling a lot. Below is the bounty of my morning.

I recommend this exercise: Spend some time noticing the small details related to something you do routinely. Does it make you happy?
