I’m grateful for waking up environmentally. There are many kinds of healthy and unhealthy environments. Living in an environment filled with lots of love, faith, trust, respect, healthy foods, clean air, safe neighborhoods, healthy spiritual practices, access to education, access to health & wellness facilities, support groups, and financial abundance (this does not just mean money, but living in abundance vs. lack) is going to have positive affects on our well-being. Living in an environment with a lot of tension, fighting, drinking, drugs, desparation, financial problems, limited health services, neglect, abuse, pollution, crime, violence, condemnation, judgment, and addictions is going to have negative affects on our well-being if we don’t have healthy environments to turn to in order to help us find our ways out. I’m so grateful I learned to see what were healthy environments to be in and what were not. My life is so much richer for it!
Side note: Just to clarify a financial abundant environment from an environment where there is a lot of money but the people within it live in lack is about the mindset the people within the environment have about the money. A person can be rich and live in complete lack, which would have negative affects on themselves and anyone who that money touches.
When I became willing to look at how my environments were affecting me, I started making choices that would contribute to changing my environments. Yesterday, I spoke about intellectual wellness and we each have our passions. For people who are driven by environmental knowledge and are aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, they may go on to pursue things that would help others live in healthier environments. This may include how to preserve our whole entire planet. I’m very grateful for all the people with a passion for our environment. I’ve gained a lot of wisdom in how to improve my environments from people like you, thank you.
Today, I commit to igniting my environmental awareness. My environmental well-being is not always one of the areas I instantly think of when it comes to self-care and aligning my energy with love, abundance, and peace. Sometimes, I spend so much time on what is going on inside me, I forget to look to my surroundings to give me guidance on how to serve the highest good for both myself and others in my different environments. Everything from water quality to healthy social environments matters. When we don’t open our eyes to our surroundings, sometimes we can miss what is holding us back from living our best lives. There are always choices and answers, but not if we are not willing to look at where the problems lie. I know I can’t change other people, but I can change my responses and the way I communicate with others to serve the highest good. Here are just some of the questions I’m asking myself today to make sure I’m taking care of my wellness—environmentally speaking:
- What types of environments am I living, working, and socializing in?
- What in my environments are not contributing to my well-being?
- What in my environments are contributing to the health of my well-being?
- Are these environments healthy for the well-being of the people who live with me?
- How can I improve the health of my environments?
- How is the water and air quality in my daily environment?
- Do my environments provide me with healthy options for my physical, emotional, intellectual, financial, occupational, spiritual, social, and creative well-being?
- How can I make my environments healthier for those I’m passing them down to?
- How am I contributing to the health of my community, local and global?
