ACTION!

ACTION!

Write down ideas which come to your mind - Which small things you can do on daily basis to improve lives of people around you?

Write them down.

Keep the list in your head and look for oportunities throughout the day: When you can do one of those things? If it needs some preparation, plan it in your calendar.

When you keep the list in your head, it will be much easier for you to spot the opportunities.

Don't forget

Don't forget

that it's ok when you have a bad day and don't do anything from the list. Don't feel guilty for that. Humans aren't capable of working at 100% . Give yourself a rest and continue when you feel better.

Here is some inspiration for the activities, sorted by themes:

PS: I added some activities for personal health too, because you need to keep your mind and body in a good condition to be able to spread happiness馃槈

Try to REDUCE more than recycle

Try to REDUCE more than recycle

The key is not to recycle more but to buy less.

Only 9% of plastic we throw away is recycled鉂楋笍(but that doesn't mean you should stop recycling! It has it's purpose too!)

So keep this in your mind the next time you see some shiny new stuff. Do you really need it?

If you want to check the percentage of recycled plastics, here is the link:

Let me share...

Let me share...

my favourite quote with you!

It's a dialogue from a movie The Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell.

The first character (Adam) wants to make a change, the other character (Haskell) thinks Adam is being foolish and naive.

This kind of dialogue happens inside of us from time to time. So don't forget the answer for what to say to your internal Haskell the next time you experience this feeling of uselessness:

Haskel: ,,And for What... For What?

No matter what you do it will never amount to anything but a single drop in a limitless ocean!"

Adam: ,,What is an ocean...but a multitude of drops?"
