Advice from bamboo
Bamboo isn’t just a nutritious panda snack.
There’s a lot we can learn from this hollow herbaceous plant, things we can transfer into our daily lives and routines.
So how can you take a leaf out of bamboo’s book and strive towards an eco-friendlier existence? Let us tell you exactly how.
Stand tall and proud (and enjoy the view!)
Bamboo is hollow on the inside, yet it’s still mega strong. It also stands tall and proud.
You’re pretty solid, with all that muscle and bone, so you can and should be just as strong, if not stronger. Even if you’re not tall, keep your head held high and act as if you’re the tallest person in the world.
And while you’re up there, enjoy the view!
Take some inspo from this super-fast-growing grass and be strong. You can do this. You got this.
Be a natural beauty!
You’re a beautiful person, inside and out. Don’t let anyone tell you any different.
Bamboo doesn’t care if people criticise, bamboo is proud to be an all-natural beauty.
Rely on your roots
The perfect support system, which we all need, especially when things get a little tough.
Bamboo roots are a lot like family and friends – they keep you upright and grounded when things get a little rough and stormy. So keep yourself rooted firmly to the ground when things get tough.
Other favourite 'roots' (after friends and family, of course) are:
- Ice Cream
- More ice cream
- A second dog
- Looking at pictures of dogs
- Reading a good book
- Taking time for yourself
Learn to grow
Bamboo can grow 3 feet every day! Imagine if you were able to grow that fast? Spiritually, not physically. That would be absolute chaos.
But you CAN grow as a person in that time - all it takes is 24 hours to change your mindset. Maybe even less, if you’re a massive show off or in total control of your brain.
Try taking time out to check in with yourself and make sure everything is A-Okay every now and then. Sometimes all it takes is a chat with a friend or changing something slightly, it can make a big difference to your personal growth.
We should all strive to be a little more planet-friendly - and making small changes to support the environment is the best way to achieve that.
By taking care of ourselves, we’re in a better position to take care of our planet, too. So be a little more bamboo, look after yourself, and let’s fight to make the world a better place.
We hope you’ve learned a little something from our friend bamboo.
