As a society, our lack of owning up and taking responsibility is causing some very significant downfalls which will not be sustainable long term. Our ‘I want it yesterday‘ way of life is based on one fundamental principle – ‘I want more, now’.

It’s a huge loop that consists of want more, work more, spend more – rinse, repeat. We’re actually trapped, very much like rodents in a wheel, running hard without getting anywhere.

The reality, at least the one many people avoid believing, is that we all have the ability to stop the endless cycle. Like most things, you just need to apply yourself to a solid plan versus waiting for someone else to swoop in and put a band-aid on your financial or mental injuries; it’s not going to happen.

Let’s discuss a handful of ways that we can solve our carelessness, overconsumption problems, and downright laziness. Given time, choosing and focusing on one of these will turn your life around. Are you up for the challenge or are you content with the constant dilemmas you face?

  1. We eat too much. The food industry is one that is trillions of dollars strong. We all have to eat, right? From high end to fast food restaurants, our society is not lacking for a place to eat. The problem? High quantity mixed with low quality puts nutritionally poor food into our stomachs.

Solution: Become educated in proper nutrition. Use your hard earned money to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and eat a plant-based whole foods diet. When you calculate the fact that you’ll live a healthier and happier life you will be doing yourself a great service.

There are loads of other ruts people are stuck in. Take 15 minutes to list all the ways your life would be better if it was simpler. List some in the comments below – maybe it’ll help the next reader realize their reality.
