    Meditation has become a daily habit. I set my alarm 30 minutes earlier than before to spend that time in meditation at the start of each day, a habit I'll maintain going forward!

    Have taken a total of 5 bags to the Salvation Army from my decluttering. A great chance to pass on useful items to others and simplify our lives.

    Planning ahead for the holidays: Already purchased a reusable water bottle for each kid in the family and am planning new holiday traditions that involve showing gratitude and spreading joy!

    Last night, my daughters came to the dinner table with stainless steel straws in their cups and I smiled ear to ear!

    I can't believe this is the last day of the EcoChallenge! It's been a wonderful opportunity to revisit daily habits and recommit to healthy living. Thank you!

    At this stage, my goals feel like well-established habits, and I'm turning my attention to getting all of the other members of my household to make the same changes. Bought some additional reusable water bottles and stainless-steel straws today. Have everyone in the house thinking about 5 minute showers, our other water use during the day, packaging, recycling and the landfill waste that we're producing.

    Leaving CO today--my time here has been inspiring! Special thanks to the student eco-group at Aspen HS which held a contest for best/worst/funniest reusable water bottles to encourage their use at the fair!

    Loving the EcoChallenge! Brings attention to the daily choices we make to be people who appreciate and care for the world around us! Priceless...every day of the year!
