We have all heard the phrase ‘You are a product of your environment’.

Well, it’s true. But what we sometimes forget, is that we are also in command of it.

Where you live, work and eat.

The people you spend time with.

The bed you sleep in, the car you drive in and the places you go.

It is all up to you. You are in complete control.

A week ago, after doing a little activity to check-in on all areas of my life.

I realised that I was not taking ownership of my environment.

I was letting little things slip.

The car was getting messy, a pile of clothes were accumulating on the floor and my office was not well organised.

Not good enough. 
The way we do one thing is the way we do everything. If this slipped, who knows what else I’d drop the ball with.

Cue the montage of cleaning and Bunnings visits.

I decided (an easy choice) to take action and change my behaviour.

In the process, I completely overhauled those environments.

It took much less effort than you would think.

Cleaning was simple enough.

Throwing out stuff I dont need/use anymore was easy.

Even the organising (not my strong suit) done and done.

The next step, I asked myself a question.

What can I add or take away from these environments to ensure I uphold my standards and maintain each space?

Cue the indoor plants.

A Peace lily here, a Ficus there, a Palm in the corner and a couple of Sansevieria trifasciata’s over there.

Bam. These spaces now look completely different, the air quality is now improved.

Plus I’m excited and proud to maintain and improve each space.

Please note: No pot plants are still in my car.

A change of scenery can do wonders, and connecting with nature is always a good idea. Even if you have to bring it indoors to you.

Take 5 minutes to check in with your environment… How can you make it a better place to be.

Wallace out.
