Eco-Friendly Implementation

Since Sunday’s post I’ve been thinking about ways I can implement more eco-friendly steps at work. On Monday I made myself a recycling-box, as that was an issue area for me, but there’s more I can be doing. Here’s what I’ve thought of so far: 1/ Buy local where possible. (Okay, this isn’t specifically eco-friendly, […]

Environmental Accountability

Lately I’ve been re-inspired by all things eco-friendly and minimal. Not that I ever stopped being interested, and I haven’t ‘forgotten’ to be more aware of waste, but after the initial excitement of researching something new, it’s easy to push it to the back of your mind. The other day I bought some Australian-made, organic, […]

Reversing the Damage to Our Environment

Taking care of the earth is a hot topic right now, and probably will be until Jesus returns. I say this because I believe that no amount of meat-free Monday’s we participate in (with our metal straws at the ready) can reverse some of the damage already done to this planet. In light of this, […]

Minimalism: Books

I’ve hopped on the Ursula Le Guin train and so far it’s pretty alright. Le Guin is a classic science fiction author – ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’ is a popular book written by her – though the reason I’ve heard of her is relatively embarrassing. For the Jane Austen fan, you may have heard […]

The Effects of Minimalism

I posted an eco-friendly update here, but I wanted to write about the positive effects minimalism has had on my life thus far. As I’ve said, I’ve always been a neat, organised person who doesn’t like clutter or mess, but even so I’ve decluttered further in the last few weeks. I wouldn’t call myself a […]

A New Journey

I’ve been thinking about the environment, and waste, and minimalism. With Woolworths getting rid of thin plastic bags, the environment is on a lot of people’s minds. I’ve never been particularly unaware of environmental issues, but lately I’ve been more proactive in researching and trying to understand what the problem is and what the average […]

Ordinary (But Not)

I wake up and journal, eat breakfast and get ready for the day. I drive to work with good music playing and navigate through the fog, brace myself to face the cold for twenty seconds while I walk into the office. I work and drink tea and stand by the heater, but mostly work. I […]

Ten Minutes Bro

I have decided to try something and that is to do something for ten minutes a day. My theory is this: dedicating ten minutes to a task is easier than committing to half an hour or more. By saying I’ll do something for ten minutes, I’ll end up spending more time on them anyway whilst […]

April Camper

I’m sitting in the sunniest spot on the house; a small table by our kitchen. I’m eating an omelette and my tea has just been poured. It’s the third of April, and it’s time for April Camper! I did a list similar to this in March and I liked it, so here’s another one. It’s […]

Blog Plans

I’ve moved my laptop from my room to the dining table and comfy pants are on. My parents are out for a couple of hours and I’ve got my blogging notebook by my side, as well as a cup of tea. (Isn’t it funny how as soon as the house is emptier, I go from […]
