    It didn't really do much for me. I felt relaxed, but then I had to go right back to school work.
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    5 minute showers don't bother me, so I felt like it was a semi effortless way to save water.

    I get around 8.5 hours, I'd like more towards 9. I think I just need to stay up a little less late. The little bit extra was nice.
