Thinking long term

Mind Tomorrow is a blog about sustainability in everyday. It’s written by me, Felicia. I work hard to keep my carbon footprint low but often fail due to succumbing to the spoiled millennial lifestyle that includes too much travel. I should warn you already, I am very good at preaching sustainability and somewhat okay at practising it (sometimes). Despite failing sometimes, I really believes in the power of individual choices.  Your small deeds and choices matter, let’s do this together!

“If you ever think you are too small to make a change, try sleeping with a mosquito in your bedroom”.

The blog is updated once a week, usually on Sundays with some new thoughts and ideas on how other spoiled millennials can make the world a bit of a better place. To just mind tomorrow a bit more, instead of just the instant gratification here and now. In best cases, you can get both. Like  when travelling by train instead of flying, being an active citizen during political climate summits and finding the best reusable straws.

Want to know more about me? Obviously, I’m way more than a sustainable lifestyle. I am born and bred in Helsinki, but I currently live in London. Having your family and your loved ones over 1000 km away is very bad for your carbon footprint, I do not recommend it for anyone trying to live sustainably. But here I am, grateful to have two home cities! Other things I enjoy are summers at the sea, I like singing and playing the piano, I’m a food gourmand and take every chance to  try new cocktails. I graduated with two degrees, in journalism and environmental science as well as another one in Economics and I am just about to start my new master’s programme in Sustainable Business. However, this blog is not about these things. I’m not going to get personal, other than when it relates just to sustainability.  This blog is about how I try to find more ways to live a sustainable life. I don’t always manage to practice what I preach but I do my best.

It’s about finding a balance between my own pleasure and well-being right here and right now, and the well-being of other humans and all living creatures in the future. It’s about seeing the consequences of my actions globally, minimizing the harming of other people.I want to see the big picture and make that picture look nicer. It might not always be the simplest or cheapest option, but I strongly believe that in the long term it’s going to make the world a better place.

I hope I can inspire you to do the same, remember that there are several ways to a more sustainable lifestyle! I will keep learning and exploring while writing this blog.
