Living Green:

Nurturing Success And Wellbeing, One Sustainable Step At A Time

Let’s have a heart-to-heart about something close to my eco-conscious soul: sustainable living. It’s not just about saving the turtles (although, they deserve all the love), or ensuring that you recycle at home; it’s a game-changer for our personal wellbeing and the secret sauce to slaying it at work. So, let’s chat about how living green can be your not-so-secret weapon for success in both your career and your comfy home life, as well as the planet.

Even more importantly, how you can combine it all so that what you do is good for you and the planet.


Sustainable Living and Wellbeing:

With everything that is being promoted in the media, sustainable living is not a new message that is being shared. At present, there is a great encouragement for corporate volunteering days, recycling bins are available next to a general waste bin, and the encouragement for reusable mugs is widespread. But how does this actually benefit your wellbeing?

Well, sustainability when applied to wellbeing makes it just that – sustainable – something that becomes a natural part of life.

For a sustainble lifestyle that is fulfilling, your wellbeing has to be a key player on the table, and here are a couple of easy ways to do so:

  1. Easy on the Mind: Picture this – you’re sipping your morning brew, knowing your choices aren’t harming the planet. That sense of purpose? It’s like a mini daily win for your mental wellbeing. Sustainable living makes you more mindful, and trust me, that zen feeling? It’s gold. Try being more mindful the next morning brew you have. (I do have a free 7-day course if you need help here: 7 Day Intro To Mindful Habits)
  2. Feel-Good Health Vibes: Eating local, organic nosh? It’s not just a foodie flex. It’s a health kick that keeps you bouncing with energy. Ditch the processed stuff, go green, and watch your body become a powerhouse. Who needs an energy drink when you’ve got a bunch of kale, right? Shopping local also allows you to support local businesses and give back – a feel-good vibe that is shared. What is not to love?!
  3. Smart Wallet Moves: Going green is not just about saving the Earth; it’s about saving a bit of dosh too, or more so, being smart with spending. Less waste, smart buys – it’s like a financial glow-up. I mean, who knew that being kind to the planet could make you a financial guru too? So, next time you are shopping, look for the best investment buys, such as a bagless vacuum cleaning which is £80 more initially but saves you cost over time as no bags to buy.

Sustainable Living and Professional Success:

Believe it or not, your performance at work is affected by how you live your life. So, if you want to be successful, sustainability should be a part of your lifestyle. But how does that work in practice?

Here are a couple of ways it will benefit you professionally:

  1. Bossing Productivity: Feeling sluggish? Sustainable living to the rescue! A healthy lifestyle means a sharper mind and peak productivity. Bet your boss didn’t know that your secret weapon is a reusable water bottle and a good night’s sleep.
  2. Ethical Cool Cat: We’re in an era where ethical leadership is the new cool. Bring your sustainable living game to work, and you’re not just another colleague; you’re the green warrior that everyone admires. The water cooler chats just got a whole lot more interesting, didn’t they? Acceptance from our peers is a huge wellbeing boost too!
  3. Flexing Your Adaptability Muscle: Sustainable living is all about adapting, innovating, and rolling with the green punches. Those skills aren’t just for composting; they’re the secret sauce in a workplace where change is the only constant.

Creating Harmony:

  1. Work-Life Fusion: Forget work-life balance; let’s talk about work-life fusion. Sustainable living seamlessly blends into your day, making it less of a routine and more of a groovy, eco-friendly dance. And who doesn’t want to be the sustainability dance sensation at work?
  2. Your Wellbeing, Your Competitive Edge: Employers love a go-getter, but they adore someone who knows how to take care of themselves. Your commitment to personal wellbeing through sustainable living? It’s like a neon sign saying, “I’m the superstar you need in your team!”
  3. Positive Vibes All Around: The best part? It’s not just about you. As you sprinkle your sustainable magic at work, you’re creating a ripple effect. Co-workers join in, the office becomes a happier place, and suddenly, success feels like a team sport.




Living green is not a chore; it’s the key to unlocking a life that’s both successful and seriously good for the soul. So, my friends, let’s embrace the sustainable lifestyle – where success is measured not just by the corner office but by the positive vibes we send out into the world.

Let’s look at the things we do day-to-day that can be adjusted to benefit both our personal wellbeing and caring for the planet. Who said being a green warrior can’t be the coolest job in town? Cheers to a thriving, sustainable, and utterly fabulous life!

And of course, let me know in the comments if you have any particular wins here – we can celebrate together around the virtual water cooler.
