    Simplicity De-Clutter My Home
    How can you prevent yourself from accumulating more things in the future?

    I've really narrowed down whats important to me since the EcoChallenge began. In doing so I've been able to throw out things that don't matter or improve my life in anyway. To continue this I will think about things before I buy them. "What will this item do to make my life better." 
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Work-Life Balance
    Is practicing work-life balance difficult to do? How does it feel when you first begin? How does this feel for you after 21 days?

    At first I felt like nothing was getting done and that I was falling behind at work. Now I realized that's not the case. I'm actually much more productive and in a much better mood. Staying organized has really helped in my work-life balance.
