By definition, living sustainably entails one to have “a lifestyle that aims to reduce the use of natural resources –and ultimately, lessen the dangerous impacts when using natural resources.” It also entails one to “live with alternative methods like solar energy, biofuel, and organic food.”
Now, the question is: “How does one live sustainably?”
To answer this question, let’s take a closer look on the remarkable qualities of those living sustainably:
They are content.
It’s not just about being content with where they are right now. It’s also about being content with what they have – scratch that, what they only have – right now. Those living sustainably are also content with how the world naturally works, as well as how they should naturally work – like that of helping others protect the environment by segregating waste, recycling plastic, and more.
They are motivated.
Those living sustainably are not just content, but also promote vision motivation – especially when it comes to finding more ways to make the world a better place. It could be as a little bit easy as reducing electricity use, as well as saving every drop of water. It could also be as a little bit tough as reusing old things instead of buying new things, as well as planting more trees instead of cutting more trees.
They are patient.
It’s not just about being patient with others to practice what they also practice. It’s also about being patient with themselves – most especially, with their loved ones – to practice what they should practice. It also means giving it a certain time to make other people realize of their impacts on the environment, but also giving it a certain effort to make themselves realize their impacts on the environment.
