    One of my challenges was taking 5 minute showers. This was honestly really difficult and I couldn't accomplish this most days, however I am still trying to work on it.

      Is that five minute showers where the water is only on for 5 minutes, or is that the sum total of time spent in the shower?  I find that only using the water for the initial sluice, then again for rinsing, seems to have the water on for about 3 - 5 minutes total.  I guess it really depends on the focus, is it to save water, or is it to save time?  **grins**

    Writing down things you're thankful for is a great way to boost your mood.

    Turning off the water when you brush your teeth is easier than you may think!
