Zoo Alive Volunteers Feed


Reflection, encouragement, and relationship building are all important aspects of getting a new habit to stick.
Share thoughts, encourage others, and reinforce positive new habits on the Feed.

To get started, share “your why.” Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?

    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    It's nice knowing you are helping the environment in such a way, even if it isn't something huge.
    Health Avoid refined sugar
    Before you started this challenge, did you think you were 'addicted' to sugar? How do you feel now?

    Avoiding sugar is difficult.  I find I can do it for a day pretty easily, but days 2-5 are very hard.  Then when it becomes routine, it seems easy again, until I cave in and have sugar, then it's totally back to square 1!
