    Human powered transportation makes me feel good compared to other methods of transportation because we are using less carbon which is better for the environment.

    How is planting trees good for your mental, physical, and spiritual health?

    Planting trees is good for my mental health because it helps me take a break from electronics, it helps my physical health because I am basically exercising by planting trees in hot weather, and my spiritual health because it makes me feel good that I am replenishing trees that suck up carbon and help our environment.

    Next is being more focused on the actual light bulbs and managing the carbon that it emits by turning it off.

    Spending more times outdoors enhanced my sense of place because I explored my neighborhood which taught me what there was outside of my house and made me more aware

    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?
