Are eco-habitats for you?

Think local. Live in Eco-Habitats. Flourish in harmony. Leave a legacy.

If you’re someone who is committed to living consciously, you’ve already proved that your mindset is a refreshing departure from the take-all and use-all approach. You’re over and done with the maddening pace of life and now, all you’re looking for is a sanctuary where you can create your own little serene cocoon and live a healthy life in harmony with nature. A life where you’re surrounded by like-minded people who are also in the same pursuit. Well, the answer for your quest is an eco-habitat. In simpler terms, an eco-habitat is a full-featured settlement in which human activities are harmlessly integrated into the natural world in a way that is supportive of healthy human development and can be successfully continued into the indefinite future. Sustainable living is the name of the game. Let’s explore what such a lifestyle entails: -

Sustainable living is about quality.
Sustainable lifestyle is about paying now, as opposed to later.
Sustainable way of life is about thinking long term.
Sustainability is about evaluating value and impact over a lifetime and beyond.
Sustainability is about working with nature, not against it.
Sustainability is holistic.

Ultimately Sustainability is a Mindset. 

Unless the people who invest in an eco-habitat are of a certain temperament, it doesn’t serve the purpose. Or should we say unless people are of a certain temperament, they don’t choose an eco-habitat? That’s the point you need to consider when you’re aligning yourself to a community. 

  1. Sustainable mindset can't be limited to or focussed on short-term results. Patience, openness, and grit to create the change are supreme.
  2. Even after the acceptance of the idea and aligning to a common purpose as a group, you have to be open to critics, naysayers, resistance, early or midway withdrawals but what is most important is that the majority should keep up the spirit.
  3. Even a group of like-minded individuals need a leader, a guide who directs the collective voice; one who keeps the group on the right track away from diversions and motivates them to stay on the course.
  4. Timely communication among the group plays a pivotal role. It is also advised to have periodic meetups to review and appraise the progress.
  5. As a community who will be living in a bio-diversified community, it is important to understand various facets of nature, the changing aspects well before the community is being formed.
    a. be aware of farming and animal husbandry related aspects
    b. understand other aspects of sustainability - solar, water harvesting etc as a first-hand user
  6. Be prepared for the contingency beyond the planned financial phases. It is important to have a well-planned financial set-up and let the entire group understand and abide by this.
  7. Financial matters can make or break the entire spirit of the group. It is important to have an auditor, a legal advisor who will guide the statutory and financial aspects of the group and will bring a neutral perspective.
  8. It is always better to have a mentor; a guiding light who will hand-hold them on the journey.
