  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Go by Bike
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    When I ride my bike I notice small parts of the city I wouldn't normally see. I find murals and small parks and I even stop to smell the roses. I found a small rose garden near Encanto park tucked away. It was lovely! If I were in a car I never would have found these tiny gems from behind the steering wheel. 

    I also take my time. I plan my trips and it really is just as convenient as driving if I plan accordingly. Also, I am less grumpy from rush hour traffic.

    My favorite part about biking to work is the awesome things you find along the way. I will be documenting murals and art as I go!

    How can you prevent yourself from accumulating more things in the future?

    I prevent myself from getting too much stuff by thinking carefully about what I purchase and making sure that if I do bring in items into my home that they are needed or are replacing other items. 

    I think about how often I use certain items and if I really need them or if I want them. It is fine to want things or purchase something new for my home or myself, but by being intentional and thoughtful about my "stuff" I reduce wasteful consumption.

    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    I did not use public transportation until I was in college. Then I started using it all the time. It isn't as accessible as it once was for me. But I still think it is vital.

    Simplicity Go for a Daily Walk
    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?

    I love walking around my neighborhood. The rain we got these past couple of days have really made it so nice to walk around phoenix at night. I like the walks because it gives me time to reflect and connect with nature.
