Day 5

Finally, no impact week has come to an end. When I first thought about this I said to myself, “I can finally go back to normal”. Once I realized I said this, I had a realization that my life had not really changed that much through these 5 days. I did, on the other hand, notice that I was more caring and careful about what I used, what I spent, and how I lived. By saying this, I guess I can say I was having more ho-hum time.

As the last day comes to a close, I go back to my goals and realize that I didn’t really challenge myself because all of my goals were accomplished. I imagined that not eating meat for a week would kill me, but I actually did it. Then I limited myself to only 5 hot showers in a week, but I ended up utilizing only 3. This shows that challenging myself is different than making something hard for myself.

In the end, I learned that everyone can create change if they simply limit or at least stay aware of what they do on a regular day to day basis. I won’t say that after today I will change everything in my life, but from now on I will definitely try to improve my lifestyle and lower my consumption footprint.
