    What did you notice in implementing this challenge? Was it hard to choose other activities over screen time? How did you decide to spend your time?

    It wasn't as hard as I thought It would be. I practiced softball.

    After practice, I usually go right to sleep. However, that is very early, and I will take a 4hr nap instead of sleeping. I wish to get my sleep schedule back to going to bed around 11 and waking up in the morning. Hopefully not to be awake at 4 in the morning.

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

    I think that I appreciate the little things in the natural world more. When you're driving, your focus is on getting to a destination, while when I was walking, I had no real destination except making it back home. You grow to appreciate your surroundings.
