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

    There is an implication of them actively not spending time with nature. It is hard to acknowledge how much time we actually spend inside, but even just going outside for 10-15 really makes a difference and grounds you where as being on social media or devices can do the opposite. It is a better feeling being outside with nature than inside staring at a screen (as i am staring at a screen merp :/)
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Take 5-Minute Or Less Showers
    With 5-minute or less showers reducing your water footprint, what do you plan to add next to your water conservation habits?

    I think making sure when I am doing things like doing the dishes, brushing my teeth, etc. I should make sure I am turning off the water when I am not using it. This seems so simple but it is easy to let it escape you. I would like to put more conscious efforts forth to make sure I am reducing my water footprint.

    What one thing will you do right away to reduce your waste? What is the second thing you will do?

    I would like to be more conscious of what I am buying and ways to reduce my single-use plastic intake that often comes along when buying things. I would also like to make sure I am recycling and repurposing items to the best of my ability to decrease municipal waste in landfills.
