Stop the Madness
Sometimes, the greenest thing we can do is slow down. In the Bible, we encounter this idea in Sabbath. In America, we call this "good ole' R & R." Pick a day in the next week, and determine not to work, shop, or even drive your car. Try leaving the television, computer, and Wii off. Then, replace those activities with more beneficial ones: play a board game with your family, take a walk, visit your neighbors, or curl up and read a good book. You'll not only relax, but you'll reduce your impact on an equally tired planet.
