  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Work from Home
    It takes the average worker in the United States 26 minutes to travel to work. One way to fix long commutes would be to make cities more affordable. An even simpler option: promote the use of telework. Are you in an industry that would allow you to work from home? What are some obstacles you might find yourself facing while working from home?

    They are all part of the same ecosystem... It's almost impossible to be personally healthy in an unhealthful environment. On the other hand, it's not feasible to create a healthy community with you don't focus on your on health. It's a chain reaction that needs to start from each of us.
