Say No to Plastic Straws

    It has been nice to get off of my phone and instead go outside. It's helped me relieve my stress and get more fresh air

    It's been so nice to do this, because I feel more pressure to make sure that I complete these actions. I have gotten used to using my reusable straws and bottles!

    Everyone needs water to survive. I try to drink a lot of water every single day to stay healthy and since I workout everyday, I drink a lot of water. Some benefits of drinking a lot of water include, staying hydrated, having clear skin, gaining more energy, and being more healthy overall.

    It was definitely difficult to get off my phone and do something else. But, I think this will be a great challenge and it will get easier over time!
