So you may have noticed – or may be doing- the “plastic free July” campaign
That is on right now
To help us reduce our use of plastic.
Which is great.
The cool thing about It?
Even if you are not totally plastic free this month
It still makes you more aware of how much we do use
Which might just help us make one better decision each day.
Like the other day..
Walked in to Costa to get a coffee at a service station
But forgot my mug.
So I ran back to the car to get it..
(Ok, maybe I didn’t run…I walked 😂 I hate running)
Sometime I’d never have done a year or so ago..
We’ll happily accept that our small, daily decisions with plastic
Will help the environment
But when it comes to our health?
How we feel?
Becoming our best self?
We can’t seem to sell it to ourself..
That getting 1% better each day adds up.
just like with disposable coffee cups:
One a day, is 7 a week, and 1456 a year…
Imagine if you did that with your habits?
With your perspective?
In how you react to stress?
With your eating?
So what are you waiting for?
How can you get 1% better TODAY?
And if you need somewhere to start,
Try this today:
What might stress you out or “trip you up” today?
How would your best self deal with that?
Notice then where your energy goes when you put your attention on YOU.
Which allows you respond to situations and stay in control.
And this might the difference between finishing the pack of biscuits
Or skipping your exercise
