    Happy Monday!  Welcome to everyone's favorite day of the week!  While we're thinking about it, have you heard of Meatless Monday?  Meatless Monday is a growing movement to reduce by at least one serving the amount of meat you eat today.  Sure, going meatless is better for peoples' health in general, but did you know shifting to a plant-rich diet is one of the best things someone in the U.S. can do to reduce climate change?  It's true!  Skipping one serving of beef every Monday for a year saves the equivalent emissions to driving 348 miles in a car.

    Friday Fun Fact:  Did you know that in the US 30-40% of our food ends up in the garbage?  Say what?!  Aside from the fact that millions in our country and billions worldwide experience food insecurity, wasted food is also a climate problem.  Food that goes to the landfill ends up releasing methane, which is about 25x more powerful at trapping heat in our atmosphere than carbon dioxide.  One of the best things that Americans can do for climate change is waste less food and compost the food scraps you do have.

    How did you first check in go today?  Take a minute to post to the feed a sentence or two about why you chose one of your actions....   

    My headspace was just getting too darn cluttered.  A busy mind is not sustainable for me...it's a recipe for burnout.  I decided to challenge myself during these three weeks to practice 15 minutes of mindfulness each day.  Day one = check!
