  • Reflection Question
    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 have been thinking a lot lately about how my water usage could be cut down. I have been wanting to see if I could take shorter showers, so this gave me a good opportunity to get the motivation to do it. I go to the gym in the mornings so I usually like to take long showers after I get done, but this morning I set a timer for 5 minutes and made myself be done in that time. It actually wasn't as difficult as I thought, but it would definitely be a lifestyle change to do this everyday. Hopefully by the end of this challenge, 5 minute showers will become a part of my everyday life.
