It’s said that it takes 21 days to develop a habit, and unfortunately just one day to break one: see here. If you’d really like to get scientific, please read the following article from the Oxford Research encyclopedia on habit formation, and the variation between us, here.
As we tackle the effects of climate change together, and as we learn more about the types of things that can prevent it, what are some of your energy habits that you need to break? What are some energy habits you could increase, or even promote?
For me, especially as I’m working from home, this includes simple things – like turning off lights/fans/air conditioners when I leave the room or the house – and more complex things, like completing an energy analysis using my utility bill. The more I learn now about my own energy habits and the fluctuations on my energy bill, the more prepared I’ll be to develop better ones, offsetting my utility costs and saving me a ton of money at the end of the day, literally.
