Since the pandemic, people have been shut in their houses with nothing to do, but to change. Some started exercising, while others learned how to love the indoors more. With this, you will learn five things you should change to better yourself and the environment.
#1. BUY A REUSABLE STRAW
You probably already hear this constantly, but still many people are not using reusable straws. It’s better to use them because you don’t have to constantly throw them out every time you need to use one. Also, according to ecocycle.org, about 500 million straws are used in the US every day. So why not cut down on using straws and save marine life. (Learn more on strawlessocean.org)
#2. START USING REUSABLE BAGS FOR GROCERIES
Buying reusable grocery bags are pretty important as well. By doing that, you can cut down on the piles of one use bags that you get from grocery and retail shopping.
#3. SCHEDULE OUT YOUR DAY THE NIGHT BEFORE
Now, this is a perfect tool to use before bedtime to clear your mind. Buy a planner or just type out the list in your notes on your hand-dandy phone. This also helps people who get anxious before they sleep because they’re overthinking about the day. Writing out your schedule would make you feel a little bit more accomplished before the day even starts.
#4. GIVE YOURSELF A BEDTIME
This tip kind of goes hand-in-hand with the tip before. Giving yourself a bedtime will help you feel a little bit more in control of your day. Plus you can plan out when you sleep and wake up so you can be energized for the day.
#5. TRY SOMETHING NEW AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK
Last but not least, try to do something new every week so you can keep yourself on your toes. You never know, you may find a new side hustle.
