    El viernes compré un café helado y pedí que me lo sirvieran en este bote.

    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Algo que hice en semestres pasados era invitar a mis amigas al gym o salir a correr. Y en verano invité a mi hermana a inscribirse a un gym conmigo y así teníamos una actividad que hacíamos todos los días juntas.

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Me di cuenta que compraba mínimo 5 vasos de café a la semana y a largo plazo serían demasiados; aparte también noté a gente comprando su café y pidiendo que les sirvieran en vasos reusables. Por lo tanto me uní a esta acción y empecé a hacer lo mismo. 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    Justo hoy que hice mi despensa no tenía más que una bolsa reusable conmigo y no todo cabía en ella entonces lo que hice fue cargar en mis manos 3 cosas más y no acepté la bolsa de plástico que me ofrecieron.
