How do you unwind or recharge your batteries?

Beyond spending time with my family, I enjoy the outdoors. Activities include hiking, biking, golf, and any sport my children want me to play…except those that require me to fall down. Also, visiting Kendeda projects provides extraordinary satisfaction.
