I have a new obsession. I realize it may not seem directly related to sexuality, but it is certainly tied to energy, health, and positive body image, which are absolutely related to sexuality.
I’ve always been an environmentalist. My father’s a serious outdoorsman and he taught me, from a young age, to conserve energy and water, to recycle and reuse, to love all creatures. So, today, I turn off the water when I brush my teeth, I don’t drink bottled water, I adopt my dogs instead of buying from a pet store or a breeder, and so on. I realized recently that I try to take better care of the planet than I do of myself. Why not do both? At the same time, even?
This year, I want to start eating sustainably. It’s better for me and it’s better for the Earth. I want to eat locally, organically, and seasonally. I want to detoxify. I want to take vitamins. I want to take care of my insulin resistance and get healthy. I want to cook more, like I used to. I want to learn more about gardening so that I’m prepared for when I have the chance to grow my own vegetables in the future.
