  • 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?

    Practicing mindfulness to me is to be aware of my thoughts and actions and make conscious decisions on how I dispose of my waste, what waste I generate, the impact I have on others, and the impact I have on the earth. I think spending time alone outside and practicing deep breathing and appreciation for nature is particularly helpful in practicing mindfulness and finding joy <3 
  • Reflection Question

    I sent virtual thank you messages to teachers and staff at my school who have been extremely helpful in all of green team's projects. 
  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Carry My Trash
    What one thing will you do right away to reduce your waste? What is the second thing you will do?

    One immediate action to reduce my waste is to reduce the amount of small plastic-wrapped items I buy. Instead, I can buy things in bulk so there's only one disposable container to throw away than many small plastic ones that add up and are especially damaging to animals who mistake them for food if they end up outside of a garbage bin.

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

    A culture that spends most of its time inside on screens may become detached from the natural world and not meet one's innate biophilia needs. 
  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Share Your Eco Habits
    How do you create new sustainability-related habits or change bad habits?

    practice them and intentionally do them until it becomes unintentional which = a habit !!
