    Always shutting lights off when I leave rooms

    I went for a walk through the woods on our trails and experienced the crisp autumn air coupled with the crunching of the fallen leaves. It was sunny so I felt some warmth but the wind kept my skin covered in goosebumps.
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Go For A Daily Walk Outside
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    This is definitely true for me. I used to think just standing up and walking around inside was a good study break but I feel more refreshed after walking outside for a few minutes instead.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Join An Outdoor Project
    How well do you know the area you stay in -- whether your hometown or your campus community? In what ways is a deep knowledge of your surroundings -- known as a 'sense of place' -- important to you?

    I wish I knew this area better. I don't always have time to explore and see the woods nearby and I'm not the first person to notice new places. I'd like to get better at that.

    It allows me to clear my mind and refocus my intentions and goals.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Walk Instead
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Does this statistic describe your own transportation habits? If so, how might you incorporate more muscle-powered transportation in your daily life?

    It definitely does. I don’t like walking in the rain when I have my backpack with my laptop in it and I don’t like walking home from work at night. Sometimes I will ask for a ride from a friend if they are coming back from a trip.

    I just love getting out and doing something. It helps me to find my center when I ramble out to explore places alone. Good reflection time

    It helps me to keep track of my relationships with other people. I’m able to track my progress and it helps me to reflect of how meaningful my interactions are.
