  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    I've been a vegetarian for nearly 2 years now. It was not always easy but I started by taking simple steps. For example, I started not eating meat for breakfast. As time progressed I started to further limit my weekly consumption of meat. Now I am following my same process to becoming more plant-based/vegan. I have once again begun my journey by eating at least one vegan meal a day (usually breakfast). It's important to optimistic about this diet and not think of what you can't eat but all the new foods you will make a point to try. 
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Limit Social Media
    Social media can keep us connected with loved ones, make us laugh, and help us to learn new things. It can also create echo chambers and take more time than we realize or intend to give. After completing this action for a few days, how do you feel? What do you notice?

    I feel free and present after taking a break from social media. In fact, I no longer use Instagram or Twitter. I felt like they weren't contributing much to my life but rather negatively impacting me.
