    I love my orchids and they bring me so much joy. I could just stare at them for hours, which is a key to my meditation and mindfulness. I am truly in the moment.

    I make a lot of purchases online and I try to deal with suppliers who use carbon neutral shipping. Please read below if you’re not familiar with it. I have a candle company and it’s important that I try to reduce my carbon footprint as much as possible and shipping in purchasing materials.

    What is carbon-neutral shipping?

    “Carbon-neutral” refers to practices that, when executed properly, produce a net zero amount of carbon dioxide. Carbon-neutral shipping aims to reduce the carbon footprint associated with shipping packages.

    Since carbon-dioxide is one of the leading reasons for climate change, switching to carbon-neutral shipping brings us one step closer to helping protect the environment and is a major effort in helping to monitor our carbon dioxide emissions.

    Today was a super busy day, and I was not able to meditate as long as I had liked. I’m going to try an additional 15 minutes prior to me going to bed just to clear my mind.
