Ok, I have a confession…It is the start of September and as everyone naturally gears up for back to school/uni (I have a lot of teacher friends!), I feel slightly jealous that I’m not. I bloody love learning, and with the start of another academic year being spent out of formal education rolling around, I’m determined to still learn some stuff. So i’ve made myself a little project.
The ‘Learning to Live…’ Project
Over the next year I will be introducing new habits and skills into my daily life, in order to try and live a little happier, and perhaps a little more exciting too. I have always thought of myself as a sustainable person; I always try to recycle, I don’t eat animals, I buy most of my clothes second hand…In my eyes – that was definitely sustainable living right?
I have started to notice a lot more recently, that actually unless I make a conscious effort to not do something, there are many many things that I am doing which aren’t helping to live a sustainable lifestyle. It’s the little things y’know, like forgetting to turn the light off when I leave the room! (sorry mum)
So each month, for one year, I am going to adopt a different sustainable habit. I have only given myself the commitment of sticking to the habit for one month – no pressure to keep it up – just an experiment. Although secretly I’m hoping I keep every single one of them up and I am a sustainability goddess by 2018, but, we’ll see about that.
Each week I will post up a little de-brief about how the week has gone and how I am finding this new way of learning/living, as well as regular research posts about the wider effect. Check back here on Sunday to see what I have chosen for September’s challenge!
Any suggestions for the list are greatly appreciated…comment down below! Or let me know your own sustainable habits!
