Ep. 122: Social Self-Care (2/4)

Continuing our series on social self-care, this time Haley and I talk about stewardship: caring for the things we’ve been given. What does that look like in real life?

It was commonplace for our grandparents’ generation to ‘use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without,’ as the war slogan reminded them—it was just part of life. But we live in a throwaway culture now.

“Reusing something instead of immediately discarding it, when done for the right reasons, can be an act of love which expresses our own dignity.” – Pope Francis

Haley and I talk about the practicals here, but also why we consider this self-care, and not just good practice for the earth. Basically, we think this is taking care of ourselves, too.
