Bitter Sweet Serenity

This week in wicked problems we advanced more into mindfulness and meditation. We experienced it with music and nature sounds. It was a bit easier with the music and just pure silence than it was to sit and listen to birds and a voice lady continuously talk. It’s just nice to a have a class that’s just pure relaxation in the beginning. It relieves the stress I walked in with and I’m able to leave with a clear mind. I think it’s important to have at least ten minutes a day to yourself to relax and breath. I’m glad this class does this otherwise, I wouldn’t do it at all or forget.  Besides relaxing we got more into our fields of practice and why we have to take wicked problems for it. We talked about fashion sustainability and I was really into that since it’s my chosen field. And we also started our research papers. I chose animal welfare in the apparel industry and I actually did a lot of research about it and I can’t even begin to describe how much I have learned and taken away from the readings. This class has given me a new perspective on many things that we have talked about. One thing that interested me about the research is the no end point. That domino effect that happens just by one simple thing is so influential. And I’m kind of upset that this next week is the last week.

    Please discuss a reflection on our course topics… tell me more about this new perspective that is difficult for you to describe.

      I was in the middle of the “yes” or “no” debate on whether poverty is a problem for globalization. I didn’t really see if it was or not. I then learned that people in poverty don’t have much power than the upper class. And I gained the perspective that they work harder but make less and it doesn’t seem fair. But there’s not much they can do about it because they don’t have the recourses to advance. I learned that poverty does cause pollution.
