Are you ready for 2018 ?
I know that I am ! I am ready to make this a brilliant year with lots of positive actions and changes.
One of the things that I struggled with last year quite a bit, was to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. I know it isn’t an excuse but life with its busyness just took over and choices of convenience often won ahead of more sustainable ones.
So … that’s why I decided to set up a Conscious Living Challenge, where we can all share inspirations, ideas and provide lots of accountability for each other, so we can achieve our sustainability goals in 2018, together.
Let’s face it, all (or at least most) of us want to care more and do more for the environment but it is difficult. It is difficult because our current society is built on a linear economy, where we are supposed to take, make and dispose, rather than on a more circular system of reducing, recycling and reusing. It is this linear system that keeps our economy moving but at a cost …
The environmental cost of our mindless consumption is getting out of hand. We have to stop consuming so much, to stop being so wasteful of our resources and to start looking after what we have.
“You can never get enough of what you don’t need,
because what you don’t need won’t satisfy you”, (Dallin H.Oaks)
The aim of this project is to encourage more people to take positive action towards living more consciously. Each month, I will send out an e-mail with a new challenge, with useful ideas on how to successfully complete it. I will also set up a private Facebook group where we can all share our successes/struggles and tips with each other. We will be there to support, help and cheer each other on. Together we can.
So, what do you think ? Fancy cleaning up your (unsustainable) acts in 2018 ? A tidier home is a clear bonus.
Does a more conscious, simpler life with less waste and mess sound good to you ? Then please sign up to the challenge and let’s do it !
