Changing your habits isn’t always easy. It can be frustrating and overwhelming, and you might start to question yourself along the way. This is a sign that you need to relax and take a break from planet-saving for a while.
How to make the change
You don’t have to change your entire lifestyle over night. Take it one step at the time and don’t beat yourself up if you slip into old habits. When this happens just chill for a while, then brush yourself off and get back on track without a guilt trip. And whenever doubt strikes, let yourself be guided by what makes you truly happy. Give yourself this time, it’s not selfish, it’s necessary.
Why make the change?
How does kindness towards yourself help save the planet? Well. It’s impossible to pour from an empty cup. To be able to give back to the planet you have to feel well inside and out. Saving the planet should be fun – not exhausting.
Be a climate ninja
Start spreading love and kindness to others, even the difficult ones. If someone starts to feel happier it’s more likely that they’ll have energy to help save the planet. Smile at strangers on the street, give compliments to people around you and offer a hug whenever someone seems to need one.
