Today is a big day! We've reached the halfway point of our summer challenge and everyone should take a step back to celebrate your wins!
We've had so much fun these past fifty days, and we've learned so much along the way! It's amazing what can come from simply questioning your daily choices and being open to doing things a better way.
Living sustainably means enhancing, not sacrificing your lifestyle.
If we could pinpoint the most important thing we've learned so far it would be this. We read a study somewhere that explained that humans are much more likely to avoid losing $100 than attempt to earn an extra $100 out of fear of sacrificing what they already had. It resonated with us when is comes to embracing a sustainable and more conscious lifestyle. Go for that extra $100! Once you realize how much more fulfilling and meaningful those old everyday habits become, you'll ask yourself why you didn't make the switch sooner.
Embrace the changes that are right for you.
Not every suggestion we've made is probably right for you, and that's okay! Maybe you don't eat yogurt very often or just don't want to make your own. Maybe composting at home doesn't quite fit your lifestyle, but you've been awesome at taking your own reusable bags to the grocery store lately and are focusing on how you can eliminate plastic water bottles from your routine. Welcome the changes that will enhance your life and don't feel guilty about the ones that aren't right for you. No one is perfect and we're all on this journey together.
Celebrate all your sustainable wins (even the small ones), and have fun!
You're awesome and you probably don't give yourself enough credit; the fact that you're even thinking about how to live more sustainably is worth celebrating! So, give yourself a pat on the back for all the steps you've taken in the right direction so far. Regardless of how little or big the changes have been, they all add up and are all important. So keep it up, you're doing great! And if you have time, share your wins with us along the way. We love getting messages from our readers, followers, and friends about how they've implemented some of our tips and suggestions. They make our day!
Thanks for joining us for our 100 Day Challenge so far, and we can't wait for all that the next fifty days have in store!
