“We have to heal the soils and ecosystems as number 1 Goal, to let our earth breathe and restore” In this article, we will explore some of the ways that we can live regeneratively in our daily lives, and how we can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.
Hola earth fam, lets create the new story! Your new story, from destruction and loss of all life on earth, to a regenerative, blossoming Golden Age, a regenerative revolution from our hearts, united with mother earths heart!
We live in a world that is facing multiple crises, such as massive climate collapse and biodiversity loss, desasters, social injustice, and health pandemics. These crises are interconnected and have a common root cause: our unsustainable and destructive way of living on the planet, industries that are mining our planet, destroying our health and taking our taxes to create war and terror! But there is massive awakening happening and regeneration possible, see what you can do, start acting now, United as one earth family!! Aho!
We have been conditioned
to believe that we are separate from nature, that we can exploit and consume its resources without consequences, and that we can rely on external authorities to solve our problems. This mindset has led us to create a system that is based on extraction, exploitation, and consumption, rather than regeneration, collaboration, and contribution.
However, this system is not working for us, nor for the planet. It is depleting our natural capital, eroding our social fabric, and undermining our well-being. It is also creating a feedback loop of more problems, more conflicts, and more suffering.
We need to change this system, and we need to do it fast. But how?
The answer is simple, yet profound: we need to live Regeneratively.
Regenerative living is a way of life that aims to restore, enhance, and sustain the health and vitality of ourselves, our communities, and our ecosystems. It is based on the principles of nature, such as
- Syntropy ~ symbiotic accumulation of life, collaboration, and “spiral thriving in cycles”
- diversity, interdependence, adaptation, and resilience.
- It is also based on the values of compassion, cooperation, creativity, and empowerment.
Regenerative living Systems are not a new concept, nor a utopian ideal. It is a practical and realistic approach that has been practiced by many indigenous cultures for centuries, and that is being rediscovered and applied by many modern movements and initiatives.
Join a Network or Community for Positive Change
One of the first steps to live regeneratively is to connect with others who share our vision and values, and who are working to create positive change in the world. There are many networks and communities that we can join or support, such as:
- Farmers Footprint: This is a coalition of farmers, educators, doctors, scientists, and business leaders who are advocating for regenerative agriculture, which is a way of farming that enhances soil health, biodiversity, and human wellness. They produce documentaries, podcasts, and educational materials to raise awareness and inspire action. To participate, you can donate, volunteer, or partner with them.
- New and ancient story (naas) COMMUNITY: This is a network of African and Afro-descendant social entrepreneurs who are working to solve the challenges faced by their communities. They offer training, mentoring, funding, and networking opportunities to their members. To join them, you can apply online or contact one of their local chapters.
- Global Ecovillage Network: This is a global community of people who are living in ecovillages, which are intentional or traditional settlements that strive to be socially, culturally, economically, and ecologically sustainable. They share their knowledge, skills, and resources to promote ecological and social justice. To get involved, you can visit or join an ecovillage, attend an event or course, or support their projects.
These are just some examples of the many networks and communities that are working for positive change. You can also search online for more options, or create your own Local network with like-minded people.
How to Adopt Regenerative Practices in Your Daily Life
Another way to live regeneratively is to adopt regenerative practices in your daily life, such as:
- Plant a Climate Victory Garden at home or your community garden, like in the good days, where everyone was healthy and chem free! This is a way of growing food that not only nourishes you and your family, but also helps to restore the soil, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration as well water cycles of the land. You can choose crops that are resilient to drought, pests, and diseases, and beneficial Permaculture Plant guilds that support pollinators and other beneficial organisms. You can also compost your food scraps and use them as fertilizer for your garden.
- Buy regenerative organic, biodynamic, or organic whenever you can. These are types of farming that aim to enhance the health and vitality of the soil, plants, animals, and people involved in the production process. They avoid synthetic chemicals, genetically modified organisms, monocultures, and intensive tillage that can harm the environment and human health. They also promote holistic practices that respect the natural cycles and rhythms of nature.
- Move to a primarily plant-based diet. This is one of the most effective ways to reduce your environmental impact and improve your well-being. Animal agriculture is responsible for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, deforestation, land degradation, and biodiversity loss. By eating more plants, Fruits and rootz and less meat, dairy, eggs, and other animal products, you can lower your carbon footprint, save water resources, conserve energy use, prevent diseases, and support animal welfare
- Be mindful before consuming. This means being aware of where your food comes from,
- how it was grown or raised,
- what it contains or excludes in terms of nutrients or additives.
- It also means being grateful for what you have access to eat every day. By being mindful before consuming food products or services related to agriculture or food systems, you can make more informed choices that align with your values and goals.
These are some examples of how we can live regeneratively in our daily lives. You can also find more tips and resources online, or learn from others who are living regeneratively.

Be the Change You Want to See in the World
The final and most important way to live regeneratively is to be the change you want to see in the world. This means taking action, not only for yourself, but also for others and for the planet. It means being a leader, not a follower, and inspiring others to join you in your journey. It means being a catalyst, not a spectator, and creating positive ripple effects in your sphere of influence.
There are many ways that you can be the change you want to see in the world, such as:
- Educate yourself and others. Learn as much as you can about the issues that matter to you, and share your knowledge and insights with others.

You can also write articles, blogs, or social media posts, or create videos, podcasts, or art to spread your message.
- Advocate and campaign. Use your voice and your power to advocate and campaign for the causes that you care about.

You can also join or organize protests, rallies, marches, or strikes to demand action and accountability.
- Donate and fundraise. Use your money and your resources to donate and fundraise for the organizations, projects, or initiatives that are working to create positive change.

You can also support local businesses, cooperatives, or social enterprises that are aligned with your values and goals.
- Volunteer and collaborate. Use your time and your skills to volunteer and collaborate with the people, groups, or communities that are working to create positive change.
