Many companies fueled by the increasing demand of sustainable products are incorporating green business trends into their practices and operations. For companies GOING GREEN means to employ energy-efficient appliances, safely disposing their products and even using renewable energy sources in their production processes. Managers and employees alike are part of this movement. They understand that social, financial and environmental issues are connected and that they consequently influence their production and remuneration structures as well as the way they conduct business. Priority is now shifting in favor of the ecological imprint.
Conscious consumers, aware of the environmental impact further support the trend. Consequently, translating the GOING GREEN movement into an expansive collective consciousness. This collective movement has the ability to overcome being apathetic, selfish and greedy while enabling sustainable prosperity. Turning GOING GREEN into GOING CONSCIOUS.
But was it GOING CONSCIOUS? Going conscious means having a clear sense of what matters the most. This clarity enables each one of us to move through life in an intentional and grateful manner. A mindful state can be activated by appreciating simple things such as a sight, a sound, or a smell and opens the gate to true happiness.
According to Eckard Tolle, in the beginning, recognizing true happiness can be deceiving since we tend to attribute happiness to the actual event or thing we appreciate. Nevertheless, happiness happens when we become conscious of being conscious. In this state we set in motion a deliberate existence, making decisions that are in line with our interests and values. Actions and choices are congruent and support our chosen lifestyle. In addition, we feel a sense of purpose and meaning which results in a happier, purposeful, and fulfilling life.
So next time you engage in a GREEN decision or in a CONSCIOUS simple act remember you are traveling the road towards actively living HAPPY, feeling satisfied about it!
