RESOLUTIONS FOR SOLUTIONS
Happy Wednesday! It`s the middle of the working week, hard to believe, feels like it just started and now it`s half gone. When I think about time not flying, but literally sonic-ing, I usually get a little bit depressed. Realizing how many things you never did, is how to say, a bit repressing. And since I most definitely do not feel like getting depressed today, only one solution comes to mind: don`t sit and think about what you can`t change, think about what you can. Which, logically, is the future, not the past. Starting with my little world, of course. So I decided to come up with a neat list of what I`m determined to do in order to proudly call myself a responsible person. In today`s world that means sustainable lifestyle, so here you go:• When going to the market, ask every time where the produce is from. Buy locally, instagram globally. • Dig up a book I know I have, on green living, and try cleaning the house with natural-based detergents. You ever read the ingredients` list on any of those evil chemistry bottles we`re all using? Some scary names there. • No more using ten glasses for drinking water in the office. I can manage with just one, taking the other nine is only because I`m way too lazy to bring the first one to the kitchen and it`s so much easier to just grab a clean one from the rack. • That`s a hard one for me… I will clean up my wardrobe. Will go through ALL the clothes, select only those I do wear. I will not throw away the rest, but donate them. • Will find a tailor in the neighborhood and start bringing my damaged clothing and accessories for repair instead of just throwing them away. • Think twice, order once. In other words, stop ordering quantities of pizza for five people when it`s just the two of us. God, we`re greedy! • Take better care of my flowers. Nine out of ten died for less than five months living together.
• While on it, go that extra mile and finally start a garden in the front yard. Nothing fancy, a few herbs and maybe tomatoes are an excellent start.• Be more persistent in applying Green Office practices. Not like up til now just passively hinting during staff meetings how much cooler we would be if we didn`t print out every time like it`s the last time we have access to a printer. • Finish stuff. Stop starting, in other words. I`m terrible in maintaining my initial enthusiasm in the long, I truly am. But sustainable lifestyle practices require dedication. Last but not the least: Actually follow my own advice :)
