Do you put a price on nature?

Do you care as much of the nature as you do about yourself? When you do your hair, do you care about the price? If you cannot afford to do your hair, do you still do it? Most of you will say yes.

Actually, the hair is a good example of our priorities. Why do you do your hair even you cannot afford it, or every month even you don´t need to? You want to look good. Or you want to make a statement to others that you are a success, or you feel good about yourself.

So why do we not do the same with Mother Earth, who provides us with all the resources that we need to live?

Green self-development

Many of us spend thousands of dollars on self-development, such as coaching to stop smoking, to get better health, to be our best selves, to be energetic, on yoga and meditation. What if we could do the same in being our best selves to take care of Mother Earth? Would you do it? If you would do it, what would you like help to do?

Some free tip to be a better green you:

  1. Map your habits, and find an area where you have the potential to get something done in an easy way, and that will give you a good feeling about your self
  2. Make a plan to stay on track, so that you don´t forget your goals. For instance, a goal to reduce your shopping, you could make a plan for a white month with no shopping, or just shop vintage
  3. Give yourself a reward when you have met your goals for each week

If you want guidance on how to be better in taking care of the environment, please fell free to contact me for a free mapping session.

Shopping and waste goes hand in hand

Have you ever looked closely at your habits when it comes to shopping and waste? How aware are your family? Do you teach your kids good habits when it comes to the topic? Do you think they learn enough at school? What role model are you?

This are important questions to ask yourself if you want to change to a greener lifestyle. And if you start with yourself, others will follow. It does not need to be hard, just be aware 🙂 And remember that you don’t need to do it perfect – good enough is good enough!

Practical tip

Ask yourself;

  • Do I need this? Do I need this right now, or can it wait?
  • Is it something that can be fixed?
  • Do i know somebody that can fix it?
  • If there isn’t anybody to fix it, is it a business opportunity to fix it?
  • Would somebody pay to get it fixed?
  • Is there anybody else that can find use in my old stuff if you need something new? Sell or giveaway?
  • Always take care of what you have in case it can be sold or given away later, but don’t wait to long
  • Can it be recycled? Or is it just waste?
  • Does this product contain toxins that can affect me or my children? Does this toxins affect the workers or their children, either in production, in the air, their water supply or food?

5 easy tip to change your lifestyle into a Green Goddess

What would it take for you to change your entire lifestyle? All your habits when it comes to shopping, food, energy, transportation and waste?

Would you manage it, and would you manage it by yourself?

To change your habits to protect the environment is just as challenging as changing your habits when it comes to making a healthy lifestyle with food and exercise. It will be a lot easier with support from someone that understands, and has gone the same way.

In this blog I will give you a head start with 5 easy tip to change your lifestyle.

1. Keep track of your shopping habits

Ask yourself – Do I need this? Yes or No…If Yes, Do I need it right now? Yes or No. If Yes, why do I need it right now? Your answer to this may show you that you don´t actually need it, but you want it, and that is a different story. If you don´t need it, don´t buy it. If you need it, look at nr 2

2. Ask about the products

    How is this product made? Is it sustainable, does it come from fairtrade? Does it make me feel good, not just happy, but good about the working conditions, the environment and the economy? Would you accept the conditions this product is made by, in form of toxins, working conditions, payment? Would it be safe for my children or my pet to eat? What is really in it? Plastic, pesticides, unneccesary chemicals?

3. Less plastic

It is very challenging at this time to get rid of all plastic, no matter how much we want, but to be more aware of the products we use which contains plastic/microplastic is a good start. Does your cloths contain micro plastic? Your toothpaste, shampoo, or other cosmetic articles? Can you shop more with bags and without extra plastic? Freeze leftovers in glas instead of plastic bags. Bring your lunch packed in boxes rather than plastic. Bring your own coffe cup on the go.

4. Repair your things

Is it possible to repair your things or do you need to buy a new one? Do you have a person that repairs stuff in your community? Would you like one? Start a protest group or find an existing group that want people to repair more. Maybe someone in your neighbourhood would like to start a shop with used products and where you could get everything repaired?

5. Swopping day

A day where you swop cloths, books or other products day. If you are tired of your cloths, someone else would love them, you would save money and production of new cloths all the time. Cloths are one of the things in the world that uses most water, and many of the countries where cloths is produced are facing pollution in and lack of drinking water, such things that we take for granted.
