The Shabbat is the Jewish day of rest. According to tradition God created the world in six days and on the seventh day he rested. Because of this religious Jews will not do any acts of creation on Saturday. Acts of creation includes cooking, using electricity, and even traveling long distances.
Take a page out of the religion’s book. One day a week desist from doing one destructive act. Whether it’s using your car, reading a book instead of watching television or using less electricity. Even if you are not Jewish, this act will help you take a step outside of your daily routine and rethink it. Even if it is just a little.
Have a good Shabbat!
