The way we care for our environment has a direct impact on our wellbeing. The New Zealand All Black rugby team’s motto is: Never be too big to do the small things that need to be done.
Their code of ethics, which they are convinced has contributed to their success, includes the team cleaning up before leaving the changing rooms at the end of every game.
Living in clean, neat and cared for environments reflects on the way we care for ourselves and our relationships.
Engagement is about becoming more aware and getting involved to make a difference.
Want to take action? Try this:
Maybe your actions won’t change the world, but they certainly will change the quality of your life. Every action you take, based on your conscience, contributes to building the substance of who you are.
So what action is it going to be for you?
Tiding your desk each day?
Finding a recycling site to deposit your collected glass and paper?
Joining a community ‘tidy-up’ scheme with your children?
Think of something that is important to you and start today.
