Does eco-anxiety or enviro-burnout have you feeling stuck?
The latest UN report on climate change essentially gives us 12 years to fix all the damage we’ve done to the Earth before what they call a “climate change catastrophe” occurs.
Just as modern living, in general, is leading to unprecedented levels of anxiety, burnout and hate so is worry about the environment. To those of us wanting to live semi-crunchy lives where we do all we can to lower our footprint while still living in society, it can feel like we are hurtling towards a cliff edge unable to do a thing to stop the slide towards doom.
Anxiety and burnout lead to paralysis. So many changes are needed now that it can seem impossible to know where to start and at the same time hopeless that anything can be done.
The truth is:
- There is no one perfect way to save the planet
- Taking one small step at a time will lead to bigger change than leaping on one particular bandwagon.
Little changes become new habits that can build on each other until you’ve made massive change.
Start small. Start with one thing: one change in one area. And then build on that. Make it rewarding by making it something that saves you time and money. Because going green will save you tons of both!
Don’t worry about being perfect. Being 100% green instantly is impossible to achieve without driving yourself and everyone around you mad. If most of the planet became 10% greener it would make a much bigger positive impact on the planet than 10% of people becoming 100% green.
10% is a doable goal. A goal you can achieve before the end of this year for sure. And then next year you can move the needle another 10%.
I don’t believe we need to feel like we’re all back living in medieval times to save the planet. I believe we can have all the advantages of modern living without destroying the earth!
But other than recycling everything possible and having Meatless Mondays what else can you do?
