  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    Potential for lack of creativity, less desire to actually go outside - when you don't feel the benefits you don't know the benefits and strive to achieve them.  Likely less energy, possibly weight gain, reduction in eye-sight, dependencies on digital affirmations and depression from observing the best of others without the context of the full picture.
  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Work-Life Balance
    How does practicing a work-life balance create a more sustainable life for you? How might it contribute to sustainability more broadly?

    It allows for a refresh, a break, a clearer mind and usually a jolt of energy.  It prepares me for taking more sustainable actions, encouraging my family to do the same.  
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Know Your Produce
    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    We eat a lot off of both lists in my house, but certainly more of the favorites come from the dirty dozen.  Which is unfortunate, but given the consumption of the skin on most of those items, not surprising.
