It’s the perfect time to make a different New Year’s Resolution. Sure, this resolution will help lower your carbon footprint, making you more environmentally considerate. Is it a proven way to help with your overall physical and mental health? Absolutely. But it is a strong and separate resolution (behavior shift) that deserves its own focus.
Picture this: you’re on a year-long quest, an adventure to experience transportation in new ways. Imagine your resolve to use a car, rideshare, bus, train, bicycle, etc. with purpose, on purpose and with a plan. What could you learn from a year of challenging your own modus operandi?
Make it a goal to use an alternative mode of transportation one day each week or each month–challenge yourself to carpool (and use Hytch!) or bike–even if it’s to brunch.
Once a month, pair up with friends, family, or neighbors to run errands collectively or make trade offs (i.e., I’ll take the kids to Scouts this week).
Whatever you decide, make your resolution SMART:
Get creative. Challenge your own status quo and see if you can create a new personal standard by the end of 2019. Never a better time than right now.
YOU GOT THIS!
