What we water grows. The daily affirmations are times a reminder, other times an encouragement, but they always leave you feeling more uplifted.
Wastefulness is most easily tracked to things of convenience that outsource some kind of task or product that we cannot do ourselves or that involves more effort from our end. This is part of the reason why reducing our wastefulness can be intimidating and even make us feel stuck. In a way it brings to the forefront our “weaknesses”. As you take inventory of these aspects that could use improvement make sure to also focus on your strengths. At the intersection between the two you will find the sweet spot that will help you create sustainable habits that work for you.
I am a firm believer in asking questions, being inquisitive and not taking anything as it’s given. Not accepting being spoon-fed with information and rules can save us a lot of time and energy and can help us become more rooted in who we are. I started being interested in sustainability, regenerative practices, social justice and climate change online after I started to ask myself questions.
