    I learned a new frappe recipe! Now I can use it in my reusable cups, and avoid buying it and getting it in a plastic to go cup.

    I walked about 4 miles today, and the weather was beautiful! I practiced healthy habits, and connected with my brother when we were walking. All in all, a great day!

    I wonder what the environmental impact will be on the increase of toilet paper supplies. After the dust settles, will there be a negative impact?

      Pro tip: Folding uses less than bunching.  Americans tend to be bunchers ;)

    Today was good! I sent a positive note to a friend, and I used my reusable cup this morning for my coffee awhile researching ways to be more green!

    Everything’s going well! It’s raining here, so I had to walk a little earlier to avoid getting soaked 🌧🌧

    How does/can practicing gratitude keep you centered and motivated to work for a better world?

    It helps me to stay centered, and in check during this time. Everyone is struggling, it’s better to understand what you do have instead of focusing on what you don’t. 
  • Reflection Question

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

    I love to go on long walks and call on my friends to check in on them! It incorporates quality time with friends, time in nature, and exercise!

    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?

    I usually get about 5 hours of sleep. Lately, I’ve been doing better and getting 7. During this time, it’s hard to sleep or over sleep. I am working towards keeping a consistent schedule. I’m trying to keep my phone across the room and read before bed to sleep better and longer. I am also drinking more water that aids me in relaxing and sleeping better.

    How do you experience your neighborhood or city differently when walking instead of driving?

    It’s intriguing how I was reflecting on this on my walk. It really grounds you on how big your world is, and how small you are. Many times I get wrapped up with multiple events (school, work, relationships, etc) it feels like the only things in the world. When really, they’re just pieces of a bigger scale, your life, in its entirety.

    I’ve started to do this in the present. By thinking about whether it’s a need or an impulse. And reflecting the lessons Marie kondo has shared.
