Welcome The Wildlife!


Welcome to day 2 of the Stride-and-Seek Challenge, Powered by Humana!

Explore nature during your walk today! Keep a lookout for any kind of wildlife. We’re talking about non-domesticated animals, so cats and dogs don’t count. Of course you’ll see birds, but let’s go broader. What about squirrels, chipmunks, deer, beavers, or wild turkeys? What kind of wildlife is your area and climate known for?  

As you walk, tune out any distractions and try to focus on nature — the sights, smells, and surroundings. Listen for a rustling of leaves, the snapping of sticks, or anything else that might signal an animal nearby. Use this time to keep your eyes and ears alert while appreciating the beauty of nature. 

The last part of today’s challenge is — you guessed it — documenting your find. After your walk is complete, share it with us in the challenge update thread here, in our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram. Tag us with #strideandseek and #healthynurse!

Want some other ways to enjoy nature? Try forest bathing. This type of outdoor meditation is the perfect way to slow down while taking in the beauty nature offers. BONUS: It’s good for both your body and mind. 

Missed day 1? Catch up here. Join us on day 3.
