    In your opinion, how do social inequalities diminish a strong sense of community?

    I think that social inequalities diminish a strong sense of community because if we are not equal, we don't feel equal and people start to think that they can just take advantage of others and that is not what a strong community is.

    The challenge has been going fantastic so far! I barely even used my cell phone yesterday to check social media!

    If I use less my phone less, I won't have to charge it as much and waste energy so maybe I should cut back on using my phone.

    Today I found myself telling more people to recycle and think about what they're putting in the trash before they actually throw it away.

    Simplicity Limit Social Media
    Social media is a great way to keep us connected with loved ones, makes us laugh, and helps us to learn new things. It can also take more time than we realize or intend to give. After doing this action for a few days now, how do you feel? What do you notice?

    I find myself picking up my phone less when I´m bored and actually spending that time to think about how my day went.

    Energy Adjust the Thermostat
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your zipcode, and in your state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    I think that a really important way to save energy that many of us do not really do is to TURN OFF THE LIGHTS WHEN WE LEAVE A ROOM. I know so many people that do not do this and we can definitely use less energy if we just flip the switch.

    This helps me appreciate the people around me more than I usually do. I do not realize the impact these people have on my life and I think it's important to acknowledge them for having that positive impact in my life.
