We have seen these last few months how important our health is
And we have all tried to use this lockdown to do better choices for our 'health', perhaps we made sure to stay active or tried to look after our mental health, perhaps found a new love for cooking...
But do we realise that health goes hand in hand with sustainability?
Phase two is here!
Fìnally some of us will be able to exit this forced lock down
But not so fast, we still cannot go back to normality - no aggregations and we should keep some social distance
This means: time outdoors, yes, but likely alone
To feel less 'alone' here I suggest some new podcasts all about climate change.
I don't know about you, but I have seen more fakes circulating in this weird time than any other time before. Fake news and nonsense information.. All going to fuel in the misunderstanding of this virus. The fake news I have came across ranged from those massively alarmist and those which stated that it is all a conspiracy... so many in both direction that one may start to feel confused about it all.
Facebook, whatsapp and many other medias are taking some steps to avoid the spread of fakes.. but is it enough?
As we are waking up to what is another extension of this crazy period, on a saturday of what it would have otherwise been a holiday weekend, and we realise that, frankly, politicians have no idea how to 'slowly' get us back to normality I decided to try and see this situation in a different light.
We have plenty of bad news on the radio, plenty of alarmism and plenty of fakes..
So let's steer clear of the above and look, instead, at how this time can be used wisely
Yesterday was my birthday.. I turned the curve and now in a new decade (In lockdown, not ideal,, but hey, it could have been worse so I am not going to complain!)
In honour of this, I decided to have a lighter post (also a good distraction from the current situation) and dedicate this post to all of you readers going to something similar and to birthday celebrations in general.
Economy as it is seems to be failing. People are buying less, and whether this is because they cannot afford it, because of a rise in the minimalist mindset, because of sustainability or other million possible reasons is not the point of this post.
People are spending less.
Especially younger generations (with opposite trends for the older.. maybe due to old habits?). And yes, online shopping might have taken over , but actually the trends in many countries are still that people are spending less.
I have recently been doing some 'light' thinking about the meaning of life, about our motivations and drives (well, mine) that prompt us on our daily routines and keep us going. This thinking prompt me to take a closer look at my personal life and identify where my priorities lie. Out of this personal brainstorm, a common-theme keyword came out: 'inspire'.
Those who know me, also know that I can get a bit 'geeky' when it comes to nature, and particular those little critters that live on the seabed (but also when it comes to all of the little terrestrial invertebrates that many dislike). And I would really like to pass on my knowledge harnessing my passion for all of these things, inspiring some geekiness in those who surround me. By inspiring as many to slow down and take a closer look to the little things and the delicate balances, i hope to inspire respect and willingness to protect these spaces. Because, who would like to protect something they know little or nothing about ?
This idea, brought more questions to my head.
How do we influence and inspire others?
And what's on my 'to listen' list
Diets are a topic that is always discussed, a LOT. And while it used to be a gender unbalanced topic (mostly women were seen as always being on a diet) now it is becoming more and more equal on the gender playing field..
