Photo Essay: The Rocky Mountains and Streams of Colorado

Each week, I write about the science of behavior change and better ways to build habits. My hope is that the research I share makes it slightly easier to improve your health, happiness, and creativity.

But I don't just want to focus on the highest quality research. I also want to be someone who puts ideas into action. I think it's just as important to understand what it's like to make improvements in the real world as it is to ground your ideas in proven science.

With that in mind, one of the creative habits I have been working on is my photography. In my 2013 Annual Review, I mentioned that I would be putting more energy toward photography in 2014. This started with my trip to Morocco. (Photos here.)

Today, we're continuing with another photo essay from Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. As always, all photos are my own.
