    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about 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?

    By participating in this challenge, I have not only used less disposable cups, but I have also spent less money on coffee because I have been making my coffee with my Keurig (with my reusable K-cup). Overall win-win.

    I've been making a conscious effort to go bed earlier at night and take less naps or shorter naps during the day in order to increase productivity. On average, Ive been going to bed approximately one hour earlier than I have been in the last month. Hopefully after a while of doing this consistently I will see a change in my alertness during the day.
