    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    For the past 3 years, I have met up with a friend from work to walk the perimeter of Lake Merritt at least once a week.  We took this opportunity to spend the hour to catching up on each other's respective lives and concurrently nurture a lasting friendship.

    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Military-style showers are easy to pull off in the temperate Bay Area climate.  So, my 5-minute showers use up even less water when I turn on the spigot only to get wet or rinse.

      How about no showers at all, or 5 minute showers every other day?! Save a whole lot of water and time! :D

    Can organic farming feed the world? Which side of the argument do you fall on? Why?

    Our household prefers to buy our fruits and vegetables at farmers' markets and organic produce stores.  We do this several times a week to ensure freshness and reduce waste.
