Finding Balance with Nature

Often we go about our lives - driving to work, buying the newest, coolest brands, reaching for pre-made, pre-packaged, on-the-go foods for our on-the-go lives - and don't think twice about what effects those easy, quick choices have on our health and the health of our Earth. And we don't think twice, simply because we don't have time to.

But it’s time we should. Our planet is heating up too fast. Our weather is trying to restore balance and return our concrete to rubble. Our animals are dying and our health is declining. Our people are living in garbage.

This planet needs a change. But change can only happen one person at a time, like a ripple effect through a pond, slowly growing until everyone understands what great change that small differences can make.

Eat more plants.

Buy more from your community.

Keep plastic out of your house, and especially away from your food.

Find joy in sunshine and laughter, rather than objects that can’t keep you company.

Say “good morning” to the people you pass on your walk to work, not expletives when they cut you off in traffic.

Touch your bare feet to the ground. Not the cracked concrete sidewalk - the dirt and the grass of our Earth.

Wonder if the sky you see above you resembles that of the other side of the Earth.

Think about how your choices can affect positive change in this world.
