    Today is my first day and so far it has been going well. I still have 5 minutes of meditation after dinner but, so far I have been doing well.

  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Limit Social Media
    Social media can keep us connected with loved ones, make us laugh, and help us to learn new things. It can also create echo chambers and take more time than we realize or intend to give. After completing this action for a few days, how do you feel? What do you notice?

    I have noticed that social media really takes us away from the world around us. Reducing my use of social media really allows me be more present in my life.

  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    My access to various kinds of transportation I feel has made me want to always do things as fast as possible. Instead of just walking and taking things slow.
