    By having a better system of organizing I can eliminate the pile-up. I need to go through my old clothes that can be donated monthly or thrown away. I need to get better at also putting my clothes away in a timely manner. I sometimes forget about it and put it off because of my other responsibilities. I need to start doing as I fold them they go in the drawers instead of sitting in a basket.

    Being outside helps clear the mind and center one's self. I have found this to be quite helpful especially in this difficult time. It helps with focusing and releases serotonin.

    I believe is natural gas which is terrible for the environment. Drilling for shale hurts the ecosystems from runoff due to the chemicals used to the sinkholes and earthquakes that can occur from it. Earthquakes were not really common in Pa but in 2019 we have 7 earthquakes.

    It is more peaceful. The wind, the birds, and sights are beautiful.

    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    I am now working on reducing how much hot water I used because of the energy used to create the hot water from the heater. We have a heater that is designed to use less energy but only does so much. By reducing my hot water usage I can help more.

    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Exercise is a family affair. Every morning and night my sister, my mom and I work out together. We do cardio and strength.
