Empower yourself!

This is the fun part. It’s about empowering yourself and forming your life. Have you ever heard of permaculture? It’s a whole-systems thinking concept for creating sustainable and ecologically harmonious ways of living. Permaculturists call the human element the zone zero in creating a lifestyle. Zone zero is where change happens!

 
Once you become active in something, something happens to you. You get excited and suddenly you realize you count.

Yes, you matter. Be part of the change. Be the change! Sounds big, but it’s easy! Have a look around you: you can start in your kitchen, your living room, your balcony, your bathroom, your wardrobe or your actions. Again: start making small steps. Start with something that is easy for you. This can be taking a bike instead of the car, check out your local markets instead of the supermarket, bring your own bag, turn off the lights when leaving a room. Sounds too easy? Make your own cleaning products and cosmetics. Find ways to reduce your waste, challenge yourself with a no-plastic week, go minimal with your wardrobe. Look for something that makes you feel good. Find friends who join you on your journey (even more fun).

 

Start making small steps. Start with something that is easy for you.

Become active!

 

This is the flow. It’ll guide you how to become active. You don’t have to move to an ecovillage and become a farmer (it’s awesome if you do, tho!) There are many ways how to give some love and energy to the Earth. Support your local farmers, be part in a transition town movement, establish a community garden in your neighborhood, share your experiences. Whatever is fun for you. You don’t feel the energy yet? Take a walk in the forest. Go see Mother Nature. She will nurture your flow to take action.

 

Give some love and energy to the Earth.
