  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Kianna Graves 11/25/2019 1:53 PM
    I try to re-purpose my belongings as much as I can before I either recycle them or throw them away.
  • Reflection Question
    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Kianna Graves 11/25/2019 1:52 PM
    I try to spend less time on my devices by becoming involved on campus
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    Kianna Graves 11/20/2019 11:41 AM
    Plastic water bottles are more convenient, but the extra work put into using a reusable water bottle is worth the  environmental benefits
  • Reflection Question
    Health Happiness
    How does/can practicing gratitude keep you centered and motivated to work for a better world?

    Kianna Graves 11/20/2019 11:39 AM
    Practicing gratitude makes a person more considerate and grateful for the privileges. Once a person practices gratitude, they will often return kindness to others.  
  • Reflection Question
    Health Healthy Sleep
    Consider how many hours of sleep you get now. How would you like to shift your sleep patterns? What are you finding works for you to be successful in this action?

    Kianna Graves 11/20/2019 11:37 AM
    I often find myself sleeping less and less as the weeks go on. Courses are becoming very intense and I have to stay up later to make sure I get all of my work done. I hope that as the semester ends, I can incorporate more time to rest.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Whole Foods Diet
    Michael Pollan states that “it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor.” What are your thoughts on this idea?

    Kianna Graves 11/20/2019 11:34 AM
    I fully agree with this. Our farmers are under paid considering the fact that they deal with an intensive amount of labor. Our farmers also produce a lot of food for a lot of people, and work just as hard as doctors.
