Journey to Sustainable Happiness, Out Earth Month Wellness Tips

Bianca Foley

In case you’ve been in your own little bubble lately, April is here, and it’s Earth Month! This year, we’ve seen more chatter about the beautiful dance between personal wellness and environmental sustainability. Life has this sneaky way of keeping us busy, but it’s crucial to pause and realize how deeply connected our well-being is to the health of our planet.

Why does this connection matter so much? Well, it’s because the little choices we make every day regarding sustainability can make a big impact on how we feel, and vice versa. In a recent live episode of our weekly podcast, founder of wellness platform Thy.Self, Chloe Pierre said “The choices you make will naturally impact the planet that we live on”.  Think about it: cleaner surroundings often lead to healthier lifestyles, creating a ripple effect that benefits us and future generations. When we focus on our own wellness, we naturally lean towards actions that are good for both us and the planet. It’s like a double dose of goodness!

But wait, let’s talk about the elephant in the room: eco-anxiety and eco-perfectionism. It’s totally normal to feel overwhelmed sometimes by the state of our planet and the pressure to be super eco-friendly all the time. But guess what? It’s okay to cut ourselves some slack. We’re not aiming for perfection here; we’re aiming for progress. By being kind to ourselves and staying resilient, we can shake off that eco-anxiety and perfectionism, paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable, and happier future. So let’s keep spreading those good vibes and making eco-conscious choices – one step at a time!

Here are just a few of the ways you can maintain your happiness by detoxifying your life:

Embrace Authenticity and Individuality

The world is inundated with societal expectations and pressures, it’s crucial to stop listening to the noise and tune into our own inner voice. Becoming a free spirit means embracing the person we are, unapologetically. Whether it’s pursuing solo adventures or indulging in solitary hobbies, finding joy in our own company can lead to profound happiness. Moreover, this practice aligns with sustainability by reducing our dependence on external validation and material possessions.

Conduct a Life Detox

Just as we declutter our physical spaces, it’s essential to detoxify our lives from unnecessary burdens. This involves not only purging material possessions but also evaluating the relationships and habits that no longer serve us. By simplifying our lives, we create space for peace and contentment to flourish. Furthermore, minimising consumption and waste contributes to a more sustainable lifestyle, reducing our environmental footprint.

Cultivate Self-Discovery

The journey to happiness begins with self-awareness and self-acceptance. Taking the time to explore our likes, dislikes, passions, and values allows us to align our actions with our true selves. Whether it’s through journaling, meditation, or engaging in new experiences, investing in self-discovery is a powerful catalyst for personal growth and fulfilment. Additionally, understanding our unique strengths and perspectives empowers us to make positive contributions to our communities and the planet.

Seek Inspiration from Others

While the path to happiness is deeply personal, it can be comforting to know that we’re not alone in our struggles and triumphs. Reading about the journeys of others who have navigated similar challenges can provide valuable insights and motivation. Whether it’s memoirs, self-help books, or personal blogs, immersing ourselves in the experiences of others can offer perspective and guidance on our own quest for happiness. Moreover, sharing stories fosters a sense of connection and empathy, strengthening our collective resolve to create a more sustainable and compassionate world.
