    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I just try to not use any plastic at all but it is so hard! My next goal is to by a reusable cup. I have two but I did not bring them on my trip :'(

    I forgot this last night but did it in my head during a meditationsession. It was nice to notice that there were so many things to be grateful about

    Simplicity Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How do your eating experiences differ when practicing mindfulness?

     It was hard to not forget doing this but I did during the dinner and that was nice.
    I noticed how natural this was for me once I thought about not using my phone.
