    Planting trees can help reduce stress and anxiety for the people living especially in city area. Looking at plants and flowers, whether indoors or outdoors, is a peaceful activity free of worries. It encourages living in the present moment and engages the senses.

    Watched The Power of Big Oil documentary. There are 3 parts : Part 1 charts the fossil fuel industry’s early research on climate change and investigates industry efforts to sow seeds of doubt about the science. Part 2 explores the industry’s efforts to stall climate policy, even as evidence about climate change grew more certain in the new millennium. And as leading climate scientists issue new warnings about climate change, Part 3 examines how the fossil fuel industry worked to delay the transition to renewable energy sources — including by promoting natural gas as a cleaner alternative.

  • REFLECTION QUESTION

    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    Christine Lee's avatar
    Christine Lee 4/30/2023 7:19 AM
    Practice mindfulness can improve brain health and slowing brain aging, reducing stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms,
    increasing a sense of well-being, helping with pain management
    improving quality of life for those living with chronic conditions. During Earth month, I practice mindfulness is to focus on the breath, resting your attention on the inhalation and exhalation repeatedly.

  • REFLECTION QUESTION
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    Christine Lee's avatar
    Christine Lee 4/29/2023 8:30 PM
    The more time you spend looking at a screen, the less time you spend interacting in person with others. This makes it more difficult to establish interpersonal connections and strong relationships, which are important for mental health and the health of the community at large

    watched Food Choices DOCUMENTARY - The truth about Food, Diet and Wellness. This documentary explores the impact that food choices have on people’s health, the health of our planet and on the lives of other living species. And also discusses several misconceptions about food and diet, offering a unique new perspective on these issues. Trying to reduce the animal based food, take more plant based. This step will reduce the CO2 emission of protein.
