What does environmental mindfulness mean anyway?
Mindfulness is a term I used often as a professional in the therapeutic setting, but I have adopted this term to describe the way I live life. I’m mindful of my body, my thoughts, my feelings, my internal energies. I have extended this concept to my immediate environment. So, mindfulness is described as being in a state or quality of being mindful, attention, regard. This is how I describe my connection to the earth. I’m aware of my impact, I remind myself to do as little harm as possible, and I reflect on how the earth is providing me with nourishment and life. I’m on a mission to create as little waste as possible in my kitchen. The kitchen is really the biggest waste creating culprit in our home. I keep this in mind everyday and it helps me stay connected with a global frame of mind. I take care of myself, my family and my home and then extend this love and care to the earth.
*I respect and appreciate my body by providing healing foods
*I respect and appreciate the earth by decrease waste
*I respect and appreciate my mind by providing a personal environment with organization, predictability, balance and abundant laughter.
