Lately I’ve heard a lot of talk that diets are not the way to lose weight and get in shape. It is absolutely correct that we need to exercise, to burn more calories than we take in. Yet to discount several diet trends is a mistake.
Conservation begins with you, and the things that you do every day at home! The word “conservation” is used a lot these days, especially when it comes to fuel, money, savings, and energy. Sometimes the word has negative connotations because people immediately think they have to do without something. But, according to The American Heritage Dictionary, conservation doesn’t mean doing without — it means “the act or process of conserving — carefully or sparingly, avoiding waste.”
Media and art for years now have sought to shock us and bombard us into paying attention.
