    I have been in a lot better mood since I started sleeping more! I have to wake up early for work and getting more sleep has really benefited me.
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    I think if we could focus on the Carbon Dioxide side of the huge impact that producing meat takes

    I love cooking at home and avoiding processed foods! I have learned a few more recipes and great easy meals to make for myself through this challenge.
    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?

    I have bought a couple of great reusable bottles that actually hold ice a lot better than a plastic bottle. It keeps my drinks during work and class cold! I will be making a permanent change.

    They create a divide between people and make communication and acceptance more difficult.
