An attitude of green is the commitment to practice listening to what is meaningful inside and the willingness to hear others before drawing conclusions. Green isn’t one side trumps the other.. Green is inclusive, it isn’t exclusive. It holds everyone and everything equally. Our values are not in conflict, our solutions are in conflict.
Green meets humanities needs. It is a space within that connects us to the value of life and the willingness for balance in giving back so everyone and everything thrive’s. It is a natural cycle of giving and receiving that turns as the turning of night and day. Imagine the moon and sun falling out of balance with one becoming dominate and one lesser than.
It requires tolerance and balanced lifestyles to increase mindfulness and patience to make better choices and find ways to resolve differences. Some ways to consider achieving effective day to day balance and enrich life for those times that seem helpless follow:

The 4 Commitments of Green Movement
The goal in this style of movement is spontaneity. This is achieved through these four commitments.
1. Commitment to Stop and Check in
Commitment to slow down and stop
2. Transition from thinking to sensing
Mindful focus on your inner sensations from the inside out
3. Exploring with curiosity
Curiously explore your movement actions and reactions
