These are really useful to brainstorm 'simple pleasures' - what do you enjoy doing in the outdoors? Walking in the woods, building a snowman, cycling along the canal bank? They could be used with a group before or after going for a walk, or both! Did you see any change in what was recorded if you tried both the before and after recordings?
