MEET ALEX STRAUSS.

She is a woman on a path to enlighten you through nature and on a mission to help you create a strong body, clear mind and joyful spirit.  

WHAT IS THE SIMPLE PATH ? 

Alex explains how walking is way more than just a stroll in the park.  It’s about mindfulness and tapping into the the healing power of nature.

Alex says that connecting with the natural world offers a gateway into your own true nature. But to take full advantage of those wonderful properties, we need to commune mindfully, purposefully and regularly with the Earth.  


GO AHEAD, TIE UP YOUR SHOES, AND PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER!

You’ve got 52 options. Who knew there were so many unique and interesting ways to do it!  

There are no excuses with this magical card deck. 

If you feel unmotivated but know that a walk is just that thing you need, Alex has a card for that! 

Pull out your “Overcome Resistance” card from the deck, it’ll get you going.  All you have to do is…

“…commit to a “micro-walk” of two to five minutes
(or even shorter if that still feels too long).
Setting a very tiny goal helps overcome the
brain’s resistance and a five-minute walk
will often effortlessly turn into eight or ten.
If it doesn’t, you still win!
Acknowledge and release your
lack of motivation, celebrate achieving 
your tiny goal, and rest in a quiet outdoor
spot for a few minutes to “recharge”. 


I took myself on a walk and Alex is so right about the magic of nature. This walk was particularly magical as I found myself on the “Fairy Garden Trail”, in South Mountain Reservation in Essex County New Jersey.  The trail consists of 100’s of fairy houses hidden throughout the trees.  Such a sweet surprise as you are walking along and come across these sweet little fairly homes.

  1. Would a set of cards with snippets of information based on a non-fiction subject matter be a good idea?

    I teach and write about self-defense law. It has many rules. People who take actions to defend themselves must follow the rules or face serious legal consequences.

    The purpose of the cards would be education by putting the fundamentals briefly on cards as reminder, refresher, or as a resource.
