    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**

    Adding an extra 15 min or more walk to my daily life is definitely something I will continue to do after this challenge. Along with keeping the water off while brushing my teeth.

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

    In the past I have tried making a point to use my reusable grocery bags, however, I was never very good at remembering to bring them along. Now that I have started this challenge I have taken my reusable bags with me every time I go to the store and I really hope it sticks as a habit after the challenge!

    Honestly eating 1 meatless meal a day is a lot easier than I thought it was going to be... So far so good.
