  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    You can take not leaving the water on when you are washing your teeth or to not let the water on while washing dishes.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

    You can use a plastic bottle and just get water from the sink that is purified or get water from a water fountain.

      Super important to try an earlier bedtime be be able to wake up feeling refreshed instead of tired.
  • Reflection Question

    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    I can run with my family when going camping or I can go and walk with my friends some time in the morning or in the afternoon.
