    Writing the three things I am thankful for every day increases the success of starting my day. Thankfulness is an awesome thing and thanking someone even for the smallest things goes a long way.

    If you are looking to start eating organic meals or materials milk is a great place to start. A lot of families have cereal for breakfast so organic milk with an organic cereal that still tastes good is a great way to start.

    I am usually an outdoors person but this helps me even more to complete daily tasks and things that improve my health and the environment. 
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Go for a Daily Walk
    How do you experience your neighborhood or city differently when walking instead of driving?

    slows everything down. More in touch with your surroundings. You will notice more things. 
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    Being thankful gives others the opportunity to be motivated through your thankfulness. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Many people say that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” How would you respond to that statement?

    You can do it there are so many options out there for organic foods. I live in the suburbs of Seattle right now and down the road there is a farm with organic milk being sold.
  • 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?
