When you flâner, how aware of your surroundings are you? Do you notice the music and colors of your environment?

The next time you take a stroll see how many details you remember when you are home. Write down your journey from start to finish. How detailed are you? To start, maybe you bring a camera, sketch pad, or journal with you. As you continue this practice, try to go without tools.

This exercise will help you to notice how present you are in your day-to-day experiences and improve your memory. Who knows, you may have a best-selling short story, animation, picture book, or song written in no time!

Here’s an example: Know Thy Self.

Lean Forward
