So I had an errand to run, some small thing I needed from the local hardware store. It's only a few blocks away. I had time to walk. I'm glad I did. It was a gorgeous sunny, brisk day. I got to enjoy being outside. I got some exercise. Best of all I got to clear my head. I even thought of a solution to a problem I was working on this afternoon. I wasn't actively thinking of the problem while I was walking, but a new approach came to mind as I was walking along. I even felt a little better about a less than productive meeting I had earlier that day.
It's not a big place-making activity, but walking your errands would add up to lots of little place-enjoying activities.
