    It was an interesting experience!
    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?

    I am not in an industry that would allow me to work from home daily, but there are some days when I can work from home. Some obstacles to working at home are healthy work/life boundaries.
    Community Support Native Communities
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    We need to work to help maintain sustainable ecosystems so that we don't create persisting imbalances in our environment.

    I'm working on slowing down on my commute to not only drive more safely but also to travel at a more fuel-efficient speed.

    Even though this challenge is coming to an end, I will continue to be mindful of what I am doing and how it is affecting the community.

    This challenge has made me more aware of everything around me and how I can help my community. I can’t wait to see our total impact on the community. Just the simple act of getting up early to look at the sunrise or looking outside your window to watch the sunset can just brighten your day.

    I have looked at the sunrise two days in a row and each were equally amazing!

    While I don’t live in a city, there are definitely pollutants around. I did research on the pollutant level in Lake Michigan and It was very interesting
