The observable examined

Five minute shower

leave a comment »

I have to admit I was prone to taking longer showers.  Not any more. Thanks to an effective behavior modification tool my daughter brought home from school.  As part of their education, the kids were made aware that water is a very precious resource.  They were given a pamphlet with water facts and a shower timer, to bring home.

I tried the five minute shower the next day and it was very clear that five minutes is a long (read ample) time in the shower to thoroughly cleanse yourself. I have been using it ever since. In addition to feeling fresh, I now take pride in the fact that this small behavior modification on my part is saving as much as 20 gallons of water per day. 

I urge each one of you who may chance upon this blog to do the same. In our water district, they are offering free conservation devices. I am sure they do the same wherever you live. This small behavioral change, individually, can collectively make a huge difference!! Try it, adopt it, spread the word.
