New Year 2017, New Resolutions, Better World
The year 2016 has been…eventful. More evidence of global warming, environmental and natural disasters – a lot happened in the past year. For many of us, year 2017 couldn’t come soon enough.
Of course, with a new year comes new resolutions. We want to do better and be better. We want to improve the quality of our lives, as well as the world we live in. For 2017, here are some new year resolutions that are worth pursuing.
Care for Mother Nature More
We’ve put Mother Nature through a lot and it’s only natural for her to break under the strain. So in 2017, we should make more effort to take better care of Mother Nature. We can adopt a greener lifestyle by practising the 3Rs – Recycle, Reuse and Reduce. We should use products that are more eco-friendly. For example, instead of buying new gadgets, consider refurbished ones.
Generally, we tend to waste a lot of things. But 2017 could be the year when we reduce wastages. We should spend our time to be more informed, and use that knowledge to make the world a better place. We should divert our resources to more productive activities. Save more and spend smartly. Another waste we should reduce: electronic waste or e-waste. These are discarded electrical and electronic appliances that can turn hazardous if not disposed of properly. By cutting down on our e-wastes, we can save the environment, resources and even save money.
Of course, everyone wants happiness. This year, let’s extend that pursuit of happiness. Let’s find it and spread it around. After all, happiness shared is happiness doubled. It can be through small gestures or big actions. It could be as simple as being kinder and making better choices. Choosing to live green and using refurbished gadgets, for instance, keeps the environment healthy. When nature is clean, animals and plants are healthier. The food we consume become healthier, making our families healthier and happier. See how one little change can bring lots of joy to the world?
