It’s easy to think that ENVIRONMENT is only for children, but this simply isn’t the case! You can Environment your home, or workplace, no matter what your age or lifestyle! The guide below will show you how to do it in five easy steps! Each step includes links to additional information that you can use to learn more about ENVIRONMENT and make your life better. Good luck! Remember that there’s no time like the present to start living greener!
When you are working
At an office with a desk chair, it’s easy to let your lower back curve inward and your pelvis rotate forward. Your knees should track over your feet in a straight line. Whether you sit or stand, keep in mind that sitting can be just as stressful on your lower back as standing if you don’t maintain good posture while working. Here are some things you can do:
• Maintain proper posture when sitting at a desk or working at a computer. Keep shoulders back and down, head level, and feet flat on floor with knees slightly above ankles.
• Take frequent breaks from being seated — get up raja herit once every hour for three minutes of stretching or walking around to help relieve pressure on spine and pelvis muscles.
Ways to be more environmentally conscious at any age
As a kid, there’s no better feeling than being outside. Summer trips to play in your local creek or park are one of many fond memories made with family and friends. But kids aren’t just naturally environmentally conscious—they can learn about protecting nature at any age if taught in an effective way. While adults have more responsibilities and don’t get as much time to get outside, there are plenty of ways you can be more environmentally conscious at home and out in public without overwhelming yourself. It’s important to be conscious of how your actions impact Earth; after all, it’s not getting any younger!
When you are in school
As you are growing up it is a good idea to learn how to take care of your environment. Things like turning lights off when you leave a room, recycling, and turning off water when you brush your teeth. These are simple things that everyone should know how to do at home or in school. By knowing how to be good stewards of our environments we can make sure our world is around for generations to come! So, keep being smart about your environment! #myENVIRONMENT #environmentforkids #kindergarten ## 6-8th grade When you are an adult: There are many different ways adults can help out their environment too. You can install solar panels on your house to use less electricity from fossil fuels. You can also look into alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power. If you don’t have enough space on your roof for solar panels, there are other ways to use renewable energy without having large installations on your property such as purchasing clean energy from companies who provide it. When it comes down to making big purchases like these it’s always a good idea to research them before making any decisions so that you will get what will benefit you best in terms of price and efficiency! #myENVIRONMENT #adulting ## 9-12th grade (high school)
When you are retired
Put yourself in your old age, and think about what you’d want. Don’t hold back. If you’re serious about saving for retirement, start thinking now about how you’ll live when you’re older. You may hate living in an apartment or a nursing home; or maybe your kids will help take care of you once you retire. Whatever your situation is, ask yourself these questions: Do I want to live alone? What will my hobbies be like then? How can I keep myself engaged mentally and physically? What sort of medical facilities do I want to be nearby? Is there somewhere within driving distance that would be nice to spend time at during retirement years? These are all things to consider as you plan for your future. Once you’ve thought them through, it’s time to get started on a financial plan. That way, when it comes time to retire, you’ll have money set aside for all those big decisions ahead! What happens if I lose my job? This is one of those unlikely but possible scenarios everyone should prepare for. It’s easy enough to say I’m so good at my job they won’t fire me, but sometimes even employees who are valuable end up losing their jobs due to layoffs or other unforeseen circumstances. It’s important to have some kind of financial cushion if something unexpected happens—and while unemployment benefits exist in most countries, they aren’t always enough to pay your bills every month until you find another job.
