    My challenges are going good
  • Reflection Question
    Water Use Reusable Bottles
    What are some of the needs that water meets or benefits that water provides for you?

    rayshaun watson 11/19/2019 10:44 AM
    Water keeps us hydrated and with the nutrients we need for the body.
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How do your eating experiences differ when practicing mindfulness?

    rayshaun watson 11/18/2019 7:20 AM
    When you are eating mindful you can really taste all the nutrients and you take your time to eat. 
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Less Screen Time
    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?

    rayshaun watson 11/18/2019 7:18 AM
    I noticed how many things I can get done by being off of my phone. It wasn't hard to choose other activities over screen time. I decided to go to the gym and workout.
  • Reflection Question
    Water Brush My Teeth Without Running Water
    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

    rayshaun watson 11/14/2019 10:37 AM
    I can find out by looking up the main water source on google. 
  • Reflection Question
    Community Meet My Neighbors
    In what ways can you create more real, face-to-face interactions with friends — or strangers — each week?

    rayshaun watson 11/14/2019 10:35 AM
    Going to different events and conversating with others. 

  • rayshaun watson 11/12/2019 8:38 AM
    The challenges are going great. It helps me try new things and make me think of the affects of everything I do. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health Happiness
    How does/can practicing gratitude keep you centered and motivated to work for a better world?

    rayshaun watson 11/11/2019 9:32 PM
    Showing gratitude gives off a positive vibe and reflects over onto others around you. Being introduce to a good vibe can change the environment around you.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    rayshaun watson 11/11/2019 9:30 PM
    Some good food I would want to preserve would have to be seafood such as crabs, shrimps. lobster tails and stuff along those lines.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    It is often said that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” What is your response to that statement?

    rayshaun watson 11/11/2019 9:29 PM
    I think that you can't feed everyone with organic food because most will be use to how their food is regularly processed.
