Trying to do everything all at once will cause burnout.
There are so many pressing issues that require our attention. The ocean is acidifying, our soil is degrading, and plastic pollution is taking over, to name a few.
With climate catastrophes happening more frequently, you have every reason to feel anxious about where we’re heading. You are not alone in this feeling.
The best way to take action and take care of your mental health is to choose one cause.
Just one thing that you feel is important.
Now, focus your time into that alone.
Maybe, that one thing is removing meat from your diet? If so, spend your time researching recipes, finding good food alternatives and scoping out new stores in your area.
Perhaps you’re really passionate about limiting plastic use? Well, choose 1 new item a week you will buy in bulk or in different packaging.
Or, you could plant a tree. This low maintenance step towards a more sustainable future lasts a lifetime and takes 60 seconds. The efficiency reduces the strain on your own mental health.
This is done easily with TreeTime by downloading the app or heading to the web app.
Breaking your goals down into bitesize chunks makes them more attainable, less daunting, and overall more enjoyable to achieve.
The moral of the story here is – don’t spread yourself too thin. You can’t be everything the world needs, but what you can do, matters.
We all work at a different pace. But please do not compare yourself to online eco-warriors who appear to be doing it all. Yes, they may seem to have it all perfectly worked out. Remember, you don’t know what may be going on behind the scenes. We’re confident that no one is perfect.
