How I plan to live my post-pandemic life

photoI have learned to appreciate so much during the pandemic that I have gained a great deal of perspective on my life and the health of all of us on the planet. Here are a few items that I pledge to change.

I will enjoy all that my local community has to offer

I will walk more

I will read more

I will snack less

I will eat less meat

I will drink much more water that comes out of the tap with no packaging

I will engage with others more

I will listen more

I will drive less (goal is to get off fossil fuels). There is so much to do, see, and enjoy close by.

I will reduce my energy use at home

I will fly less but stay longer

I will buy less stuff

I will vote every time I get the chance

I will encourage others to vote

I will continue to wash my hands

I will advocate more for the climate

I will advocate more for science

I will advocate more against oppression

I will smile more

    thoughtful list to live by – thank you.

    Here is a quote from a poet that applies to a few things on your list:

    For many years, at great cost, I traveled through many countries, saw the high mountains, the oceans. The only things I did not see were the sparkling dewdrops in the grass just outside my door.
