Our project involves outlining walking, running, and biking routes inside and around Farmville that people can use to not only get more active physically but mentally as well. How this might work is that people can pick up a brochure at the gym, along with possibly a bike, and then choose a route and a contemplative prompt to think about while going along that route. Additionally, we plan to mark good places to stop along the routes to read or just to take a break and continue contemplating the prompt. We will also encourage people to try to do this without their devices so that they are free of distractions and can focus their attention on contemplation. Our goal in doing this is to contribute to the individual flourishing of people within the Farmville community which might cause Farmville as a whole to flourish just a bit more.
