Beneficial State Feed


Reflection, encouragement, and relationship building are all important aspects of getting a new habit to stick.
Share thoughts, encourage others, and reinforce positive new habits on the Feed.

To get started, share “your why.” Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?

    End of the line for ecochallenge for 2016, but not for the great habits I've started!  I will continue to enjoy more sunrises and sunsets, get a little more sleep each day, and spend more time exercising outdoors.  It's been a wonderful two week adventure!

    Today was the last day of the eco challenge! I plan on incorporating the challenges into my everyday life.

    It was hard but very easy to get used to carrying reusable bags in the trunk of my car available for me to use when out shopping.

    I completed the Energy Star energy audit for my home! I think it's a basic one but it's a good start. It tracks your annual electricity and natural gas use, it then compares it to similar households, and gives you advice on how to reduce usage. It also gives you the annual pollution resulting from energy use in your household. The audit and other resources can be found here:

    Started a Winter garden, and fertilized my citrus trees this evening before the rain started.  Looking forward to some healthy home grown vegetables and fruit this Winter!

    Trying to squeeze in a daily walk before the day is over and complete that energy audit for my home later tonight!
    I hope everyone's enjoying the last couple days of the challenge and that you feel inspired and encouraged to keep those healthy, sustainable habits- I know I am!! :)
