Racheal's Actions

Nature

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 30 minute(s) each day. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

COMPLETED 7
DAILY ACTIONS

Waste

Reduce Single-Use Disposables

Cheap, single-use items and disposable packaging end up blowing around as litter more often in poor and POC-majority neighborhoods. I will find out how I can limit single-use items and do my best to limit the waste I generate.

COMPLETED 2

Health

Take Control

Both systemic and personal sustainability are important! I will develop a plan with my medical professionals to achieve my best health and live my life to the fullest.

    I spent some time today tending my garden and I'm honestly enjoying some of this colder weather.

    Today I walked to the story again, I actually enjoy being in the PNW rainy weather. I forgot to bring my cloth produce sacks that I keep trying to remember to grab, so it's dawned on me that I should just have a few permanently live in my backpack instead so that I CAN'T forget them anymore. It's also not one of the challenged I selected, but I did get pick out the ingredients to make a few vegan meals this week, too!

    For my "Take Control" health challenge, I've been in contact with my endocrinologist and supplies distributor to get CGMs (continuous glucose monitoring system) aka sensors, covered by insurance and ordered, to help me control and micro-manage my glucose levels from my Type 1 diabetes better. I've also gone to the dentist and established a new primary care doctor, which I didn't previously have.

    I forgot to post yesterday, but I walked about a total of two miles to and from my dentist appointment, spending at least an hour outside and progressing my health goals!

    I walked to a local nature park today, getting in a nice workout and enjoying the mud and trees!

    Throughout the past week or so, I have been saving up any plastic ziplock baggies my household has used and today, I washed and hung all 10 of them to be re-used.
