My 'Stop & Think' sign for those moments when I go into autopilot!

Hard to believe, but we are already two weeks into 2019! And two weeks ago, like many of us, I made a whole bunch of new year’s resolutions. (I figure if you make a lot, some are bound to stick.)  This year, though, I have made two sets – one set of personal resolutions and one set of eco-resolutions.

The personal resolutions are pretty standard - you know, the typical eat better, move more, etc. - and mostly not new to me, but the eco-resolutions are more varied – some new that I’m keen to embrace and some I’m already doing, but wanted to commit to again for the new year.  I thought I’d share them with you.

What I’m recommitting to in 2019:


What I’m embracing in 2019:


All of these are doable with really very little adjustment or effort, but they require one thing I struggle with somewhat – living intentionally.  So, I have created a big sign that I’ve put up at home that says, ‘Stop & Think’, to catch me when I start living on autopilot.  I’m hoping that will help me create a habit of being present. I’ll keep you posted!

See you next time! - Elise
