    Last night my partner and I spent over two hours working on an NYT crossword with friends over Google Meet. We laughed so much and exercised our brains. Socializing with friends during the pandemic is so fulfilling. (photo w/those friends attached - from 12/20

    Set a reminder on my cal to remember what my daily actions are (meditation, showering [actually need a reminder to do it these days LOL], and recognizing gratitude). Reminder also prompts me to log-in to track my actions and earn points! Now I need to set up my medication seat...

    Made a "custom" action this year ... installed a low-flow shower head (Nebia) in the guest bath and am going to use only that shower during Ecochallenge.

    I'm back again this year and excited to challenge myself more! I'm feeling more committed to advocating in my local community and learning more about water issues. Thank you ecochallenge.org for adapting the challenge for at-home activities and actions that match our concerns and needs in 2020.
