Day 3 has been successful. I kept my shower to under 3 minutes and avoided having the lights on in my room. I avoided eating meat today without even realizing it and only used one napkin.
I like to believe that I have a pretty high sense of self-control, so meeting my goals has not been that difficult. Right now the biggest challenge I am facing is mentally. Like Henry mentioned today in class, meeting goals such as shorter showers or not having the lights on the room are not as hard to achieve as I believed they would be. The hard part is that I know I have the option to take a longer shower or not get dressed in a completely dark room. If I never had the option to take a longer shower or turn the lights on I think NI Week would be much easier. Regardless, I do plan on continuing my shorter showers and keeping the lights and fans off in my room even after NI week has ended because if I can do so comfortably then why shouldn’t I.
