    Was able to recycle all my dog's beds instead of taking them to the dump.

    I do like that I get reminders to keep me on track.
  • 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 take more time than we realize or intend to give. After doing this action for a few days, how do you feel? What do you notice?

    I noticed that it was more of a habit during lunch breaks and it feels relaxing to do something else instead of social media during my break.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Go Paperless
    Reducing your paper mail can reduce mental clutter as well as physical waste -- by reducing what is coming in, you can reduce what is going into the recycling bin too. How does it make you feel? What is the next step you will take to reduce your waste?

    I like not getting so much junk mail.  I will be glad when the elections are over and I don't get so much junk.

    We have not composted before but there is a discussion with our neighbor that we need to do more but they think composting will attract scrounging animals.  I don't mind but others don't even like the squirrels.

    Glad it is Friday and looking forward to slimming out our garage and donating so someone can find happiness with things we no longer need

    Reuse something you already have instead of buying something new.  Like repainting a vase for a new look.

    I find that the gentler I am with myself, then I am gentler with my partner and he responds much more gently with me.
