    Despite on-going concerns from my team about my hygiene and the general well-being of my beard, I am learning a lot. It is fascinating to spend the time learning what I can do, while also realizing that the steps that I can take are very manageable and do not need to be grandiose in order to make a difference. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Practice Mindfulness
    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    This is an on-going goal for me, so it was really nice to be pushed into doing it. It felt great, but very telling that I was comforted by the external justification. I will work to move past needing to justify it to myself.
