【你可以為地球做的,就是養成環保的習慣。】

綠色生活,近年不僅是一種選擇,而是一種責任。

想為地球出一分力,你可以做的是活得環保。

你或者會覺得,我們每一個人的生活習慣,與宏大的環境問題相比是微不足道。

其實,我們群居在一起,個人的生活抉擇能夠感染親友鄰里,

把一群人的生活習慣結合起來,足以形成一股效應和風俗。

改變,就是這樣促成的。

所以想出一分力去拯救地球,其實是由自己做起。而你可以做的有這些事情:

 

1. 想拯救地球,先療癒你的心靈:

    把你的手機放下,關掉耳朵和眼睛,想像自己周遭一片空白。

    讓關於生活的反思,慢慢地在腦海浮現出來。

    反思自己的生活,首先就是放空。

    記得在下曾經去寺院體驗出家生活,

    就是當你的「家當」只剩一套衣服、基本日用品、一個枕頭、薄床墊和睡袋的時候,

    你才會發現自己生活上需要的其實很少。

    我們與大自然失去連繫,是因為我們習慣被忙碌和繁囂的城市生活淹沒, 把自己放空,

    人才有機會重新發現與大自然的連繫, 才會渴望擁有簡單的生活,與大自然和諧共處。 

     

    如果你不知道從何開始,去嘗試一個森林浴,或到郊外走一趟吧。

    但不要帶相機,讓自己以最原始的方式,存在於大自然當中。

    或者這樣,你會感受到現代人類的生活方式不是理當所然的。

     

     2. 習慣裸買,為地球減少負擔吧!

    3. 選擇天然用品:

    其實我們的需要,大自然早已給予我們。
    很多我們習慣使用的人工物品,是可用天然物料取代的。

    4. 參加環保組織的清灘活動。

    5. 茹素:

    近年不少國際報告亦已指出,茹素是我們可為地球做最重要的事。

    6. 種植一點東西吧:

    大小無拘,總之為地球孕育多一些植物,是有利於環境和我們的健康。

    【Basic Steps towards a Sustainable Lifestyle】
    In recent years, being a green finger is no longer just a choice; it has become a responsibility. 
    To help save the earth that our survival is dependent on, it is important to opt for a sustainable lifestyle. 
    While you may think individual endeavour is just a drop in an ocean, don’t get frustrated. 
    Our behaviours can inspire our peers, and this is how we can amplify our impact - and it is always how a revolution begins.
    So, if you want to help save the Earth, start the little revolution with yourself. These are something you can do:

     

    1. Before you heal the Earth, heal your heart:

     

    Put down your cell phone, close your eyes (and your ears). Imagine yourself in the middle of nowhere.

    Let thoughts on your life slowly emerge. Slowly and gently reflect on your life.

    I spent a short period in a monastery,

    where my only possession comprised only several pieces of clothing, necessities, a thin mattress and a sleeping bag.

    That was how I came to realise we don’t need much to have a fulfilling life.


    We disconnect from nature because we make ourselves too busy amid the bustle and hustle.
    Slow down and reconnect with nature, and this is the first step of returning to a simple lifestyle.
    If you don’t know where to begin: try a forest bath or have a getaway.
    But do not bring your camera. Interactive with nature in a primitive way.
    You will then realise we were not born for the urban lifestyle we have been way too used to.

    2. Buy naked and save the hassle for Earth!

    3. Choose nature. Mother Earth has already given us everything we need. There are always substitutes for the artificial, synthetic products we are used to.

    4. Join a beach clean-up organised by different environmental groups.

    5. Consider becoming a vegetarian (if not vegan).
    Many international reports have pointed to the importance of a significant diet change - it is almost the biggest thing we can do for the environment.

    6. Plant something. it doesn’t have to be a tree. At least grow something.
    Plants are great for the health of our environment and ourselves.
