☺ Motivational Mondays! Earth Day Edition! ☺

. . . . . . . . . .

We're taking back Mondays!!!
"Motivational Mondays" are fabulous tips to get you excited and pumped for the week! 
Feeling low? Moody? Down on life? Well, that's what these posts are for! Time to feel awesome again and get some Positivity rolling! Just because it's Monday doesn't mean you can't have fun, smile, and enjoy Today! Apply these tips to your week and try to tell me that you don't start to see an improvement in your life! ;)
It's all about You! Change your perception, change your attitude, love your life! xo

. . . . . . . . . .

It's Earth Day today! Woohoo! Let's make it Earth Month! This Motivational Monday is a special Earth Day Edition in honour of our lovely planet earth. :) 

Don't Drive! There are so many small but big-impact actions we can do, and not driving is one of them. Make it your point this week to not drive. Or at the very least reserve driving only for when you absolutely have to. Walk, bike, carpool, take the transit, so many options to choose from. ;)          
Get Outside!  What better way to enjoy Earth Day then actually getting outside and appreciating this lovely planet. Nature is an epic wondrous thing far too easily overlooked. So reconnect. Get outside, get your bare feet it the grass, breathe in some fresh air and hug a tree! Your soul and happiness will thank you for it too!  
Eco-fy Your Home!  Assess your home and see what you can green-ify! Replace paper towels with reusable ones. Replace plastic water bottles with reusable ones, and of course get reusable bags for your shopping. Opt for recycled products (especially toilet paper!), choose non-chemical cleaners. Turn off lights when you leave a room and unplug unused appliances and electronics.  
Start a Food Revolution! Choose Sustainable Agriculture. Our planet depends on a better food system and so does your health and well-being. Earth Day is the perfect day to make the switch. Choose local whenever possible and always organic. Choose to cook your own food instead of buying processed packaged food. Go vegan, or cut back on your dairy and meat consumption (they're bad for you anyways). And if you complain because eating healthy is more expensive then instead think about what you're doing for your body and the planet and how much you'll save on medical bills. ;) 
Get a new plant…  and keep it alive. I am quite terrible at keeping houseplants alive, I have somehow killed bamboo in the past and my current cacti are deflating (which I didn't even know was possible). So your goal, like mine, is to get a new plant and keep it alive. Learn about your new plant and nurture it and take the time to learn just how to do that. Spread the love, share the love, be the love, and be green! 
Go watch the Meteor Showers! Tonight (April 22nd and until April 23rd) one of Earth's rarest meteor showers will be visible in the skies! Get out there and enjoy it! Get together with some people, or go on a solo mission, and lay beneath the skies and watch them. Be in nature, get somewhere away from city lights so you can see these beautiful falling stars. Take in the immense beauty of our universe. 
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” ~ John Miur. Remember that everything is indeed connected. Your actions today affect your world tomorrow. There is always a ripple effect. Please think of this when you choose to buy cheap products you don't need, or when you choose non-organic food, and so forth. Your footprint can make a world of difference, so be aware of your actions and choices. 

I hope you have a wonderful green Earth Day and spread the love and hug a tree! 
Create a Nice Day!! 
Much Love from me to you!

  1. Everything sounds so wonderful! I'm in San Francisco at the moment and just might participate on some of the activities they'll be having today for Earth Day. And thank you for sharing the news about a meteor shower happening tonight! I'll be sure to keep a lookout tonight! :)

  2. great post! love our planet!! and it's such a gorgeous day outside!!

  3. Great reminders...there are indeed many things we can all do to help the planet (from ourselves). People use way too much resources and energy here in the West. Good thing is we're thinking of better ways to do things. Yesterday (Earth Day) I read about a designer who built a bicycle out of cardboard (a renewable material) and recycled plastic bottles, a car-engine belt for chain and recycled rubber tyres. This bike would be cheaper to make and anyone can afford it, using local materials. I also read about a car propelled by compressed air, which is environmentally friendly (though not very fast).

    I think you are right that it should start at home, using sustainable products, driving less and so on.

    Keep believing and make positive changed happen.
