5 Reasons Why You Should Care About The Environment
Abbigale Brook Photography

The environment around us is an essential part of human survival. I like to believe that people who do not care about the environment, simply do not understand how important it to all of us and that it does not affect them directly, These are my reasons you should be concerned about the environment.

1. To keep the Earth beautiful.

Living in Western North Carolina you can see all the tourists that are attracted to this region. We have some of the most beautiful mountain views that attract people from all over the world. Because of pollution, deforestation, etc. These landscapes can change rapidly into not so pretty pictures.

2. The climate is changing whether you like it or not.

In case you have not noticed the weather has been strangely warm this winter. This is a huge problem concerning crops. Plants and trees that are supposed to flush in the spring are flushing now. This can be detrimental to the survival percentage of crops this year.

3. It affects humans as well as wildlife.

Pollution in the environment can have a direct effect on human health. For example, 50% of groundwater is used for human consumption. Unfortunately, groundwater is what we call a non-renewable resource that is often contaminated by pesticides. Also, you are not the only living thing on this Earth

4. Resources, resources, resources.

Just like groundwater, there are many resources that are essential to humans. The most popular resources are Soil, Water, Timber, and Wildlife. All of these are important for the environment to stay healthy. We also do not want to run out of these resources. It is important not to over-consume.

5. Respect God's creations.

Personally, when I take a look at the environment around me I think to myself, wow my awesome and almighty God created this. If God created this world for us should we not have respect for God's creation and take responsibility to take care of it instead of destroying it?

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
