    The transportation systems that you use most growing up are lily to be the ones that you are most comfortable with using as you get older. For many people this might mean that public transportation is not comfortable and requires more effort to transition to using it.

    The things that are not daily tasks, or something I need to do that day.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    Yes, I notice my mindset and thoughts are shaped by the environment that I am in. I am more relaxed and at peace when I spend time outside.

  • Reflection Question
    Energy Choose LED Bulbs

    I resisted ordering take-out today! I snacked on fruit and home-made applesauce instead of ordering fast-food delivery. Both healthier and better for the environment :)

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    Some of the barriers of using reusable water bottles and tap water are that if you are running errands and drink all your water, it is difficult to find a place to refill it while just buying a cheap plastic water bottle seems easier. To make this a permanent habit, you could remember to fill a reusable water bottle before you leave your house and the longer you do it, the more public water fountains you can find and keep track of.

    It does ring true for me, taking time to sit in nature and reflect helps increase how in touch I am with my emotions and how I am feeling. A culture that spends most of its time indoors forgets their emotional and spiritual sides and that can result in losing touch of who you are. 
  • Reflection Question

    It helps me to take a step back and think about the good things I have even in scary and uncertain times
