    My challenge is going very well. I pay much more attention when taking plastic bags in stores and straws in restaurants. I feel more present when eating without distraction. This gives me a chance to to think about things that I do not usually think about. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Doing color guard allows me to get in a workout basically everyday while spending time with my friends. In addition, going on runs and hiking with a friend can be beneficial as it allows you to spend time with someone while getting in a workout and connecting with the outdoors!

    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reusable one, but it's just hard to make the switch. What stands in your way of making this a habit? By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Sometimes it can be challenging to make the switch when having a reusable cup is accessible. For example, if I'm out and all of a sudden I decide I want coffee but don't have my reusable cup, it can be very tempting to just go for the single use. Now I try to bring a reusable cup/mug with me so I know I won't have to waste a single use.

    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?

    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?

    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
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    I refuse to use a straw and lid when getting a drink from Stevenson dining hall. I also put my recyclables into the recycling bins. I can also reuse the cups or use my reusable water bottle. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Whole Food Lifestyle
    Michael Pollan states that “it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor.” What are your thoughts on this assertion?

    This is a very good quote. This reminds me of the old saying, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away."
