    Planting trees is nice because I did it with my brother and it was fun. It is good for your mental heath because it can be calming. Physical health because it is a good workout.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Healing & Renewal Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?

    When I eat without the TV on or music I can talk to my family and it makes my meals more enjoyable.

    I have noticed that many people in my neighborhood have gardens. I have enjoyed seeing my old friends that live in my neighborhood. Maybe i could start bringing my dogs on a walk

    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Yes it positively affects ourselves because it is healthier than meat.

    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    People in richer countries eat more meat than other people because it is more accessible and affordable. Eating meat can be bad for our bodies. Eating meat is bad for the planet because you have to clear fields for cows to have space and eat. They also burp releasing Carbon Dioxide.
