Spring is all around us and pretty warm already. We are happy to see the sun but also a little puzzled by the earliness of several natural phenomena. The climate change is ticking in. Still time to act says the science and Greta Tunberg. What can we do? Us? Individuals? What moves can we make?
In Viniyoga we talk about counter poses. So when you do a postures you need to unwind from it. With regards to the climate we have a lot to unwind. Instead of a counter pose we can turn the picture around. So instead of saying:
« I should stop using one time water bottles. » I would say: « Bring you reusable bottle. »
« Stop throwing away food (not meaning we should overeat). » I would say: « Buy less and make less food. »
« Fly less. » « Take the train, drive, walk, cycle. »
« Use less energy to prepare food. » « Prepare food differently. »
« Use other materials, buy less gifts, use less plastic, use less packaging. »
