Do: Travel by the means of your own two legs
Now that it’s getting warm out, there is really no reason to hop in the car excessively. To teach yourself a lesson about how much you really do use the car, try getting around today solely by the means of your own two feet. You don’t have to do it every day, but just see what it’s like for one. Are there ways that you can you cut back in general? Whip out the bike, strap on the roller blades, hop on a long board, or just plain take a walk. Try biking to the grocery store or walking to brunch. You’ll be surprised about how good it will feel – not only to move, but also to do something good for the environment. Sure, you’re not going to change the state of the atmosphere all by yourself, but you’ll at least know that you’re not contributing to its destruction. If everyone used the car just a bit less, the world would be bit cleaner of a place. So use your legs for good – get out, exert some physical energy, enjoy the wind in your face, and breathe in the outdoors.
