For a healthy mind, body, and earth.
There's a lot of talk these days about the importance of sustainability. But what does that really mean?
When it comes to your daily habits, sustainability is about making choices that are good for the environment and your own health in the long run. It's not just about recycling or using less water—it's also about making sure you're eating foods that are good for your body and the planet, getting enough sleep, getting regular exercise, and more.
Living sustainably for a healthy mind, body, and earth
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the idea of making environmentally sustainable habits a part of our daily routine, but it doesn't have to be.
Changing your habits takes time, so don't expect to go from throwing away single-use plastic water bottles every day to carrying around a reusable bottle overnight. Instead, try one small thing every day for a week.
If you want to start using reusable bags at the grocery store, bring one with you for one week—just one! Then make that two weeks, then three weeks… and so on until it becomes second nature.
