    I spent time reading or walking my dog instead of being on my phone.  Taking breaks from screen time really helps me relax and refocus, especially in a year where everything I do is on the computer!

    As a runner, I'm constantly drinking water.  Using a reusable bottle allows me to hydrate enough without wasting a ton of plastic.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "... our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." What is your response to Berry's assertion?

    I love the idea that we are forming a relationship with Earth while we watch sunrises/sunsets.  For me, watching the sunset is a great time to  appreciate nature's beauty and relax from my busy day!
