It is not an easy thing to follow an Eco-friendly lifestyle. It is a lifelong commitment to developing a sustainable lifestyle. To make it possible, you need to learn, explore, experiment, and commit to progressively sustainable practices and enjoy the lifestyle. Some of the important steps that can be considered for living a sustainable life are:
Simplify things around you
Simplify as much as you can. Reduce the clutter in all spaces of your life. It is the first and important tip for starting an ecological life.
Preserve things and activities in your life that are useful. It is best to eliminate the rest as it is a waste of time and clutter your space. Donate unused and unnecessary things to a free cycle program or charity. Get rid of all the things that you do not require and eliminate activities that do not add any value to life. By developing and maintaining a de-cluttered living space, you are promising yourself to live sustain-ably.
Manage an inventory
Create and maintain a complete inventory of your life. It should include the entire purchase of services and products, mode of transportation, energy consumption, etc. It helps in understanding how you are living presently and how you can change yourself. You would get an idea about the unsustainable choices you have taken at present. You can make separate inventory for each segment like consumption inventory, garden, and home inventory, transportation inventory, etc.
Make a lifelong commitment
If you wish to make a lifelong commitment, you need to make the best and loving choice every time. It also gives you satisfaction as you change towards a new lifestyle. It is quite challenging to follow this commitment throughout your life, but when you practice and enjoy doing wholeheartedly, you will know the real purpose. It is almost like re-defining how we wish to live and spend our lives.
