There are small but significant ways in which you can better yourself. You could:
1. Be aware and keep up with current events.
It is so, so important that you are aware of what is going on around you. Don’t have a TV? Well, there’s always the internet. And you have books. And a library card. And the local paper (yes, those still exist). The ways to stay globally connected are endless. Just checking Yahoo News once a week works.. I think if everyone found a way to study their world and surroundings, we would have less ignorance and more open-minded individuals.
2. Keep a journal.
One that you don’t just write in when you’re sad or angry. You don’t have to update it every day, but it’s really cool to go back and see how happy you were that some guy flirted with you at work, or that you decided to go vegan but failed two days later (it’s the thought that counts, right?). It’s those small things in life that we tend to forget, and that’s kind of sad.
