Earth Day is coming on April 22. Every day is earth day, but I’m glad a special day exists to bring worldwide awareness to protecting the environment. What is the environment? It’s any place you dwell, including your body, home, communities, nations, and planet. Let’s explore how to keep these environments healthy and clean, so everyone prospers.
The body. Purify what makes you sick or unwell. This includes stress. Yoga removes toxins from the body and stimulates our organs, so all internal systems work better. Further, practicing yoga connects our feet to the earth through mindfulness to help us feel grounded and safe.
The home. Spring cleaning is crucial to making sure your home’s air is healthy to breathe. Dust and allergens that build up over the winter need to be removed, especially with the onset of the allergy season. This clearing helps you breathe clean air inside and outside.
The community. Helping our communities elevates the energy all around us. Investing in your community makes us all feel safer and more connected. This is why volunteering and caring for those in need matters.
The nation. This is the moment to change it all: the business and political climates. We are more aware of how our conduct matters, what we stand for, and what we will no longer stand for.
The earth. Take courageous action on the climate. Now is the time to preserve and protect our health, families, and livelihoods. Together, we must invest in Our Planet. A green future is a prosperous future. Our water. Our air. Our soil. There is much we must do.
First held on April 22, 1970, Earth Day now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org, including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries. Look for local events near you.
