  • Reflection Question
    Food Use a Reusable Mug
    Since the restrictions that COVID-19 has required of our society, trying to use your own cup might present new barriers, as well as new opportunities for creative problem solving. How were you able to achieve success on this action? How can you make it a long-term habit?

    When working from home, it's easy to choose to make my own coffee  rather than go out to buy it. Although I do love the walk to the coffee shop!
