I was wondering what other Pagans here do.

I've started the habit of getting up early in the morning to meditate, practice yoga and read the Tarot. After this, I say a short prayer and do housework to get everything in order for the day.

I also try to go on walks every day, and I tend my garden. I read a lot in the area that interests me. I'm new to the path of daily practice, so it's still developing.

I am an Odinist, and I meditate most days, as well as go for nature walks at least a few times a week, if not every day. I also participate in environmentalism, do daily offerings for the gods, and do lots of reading on Paganism. I was wondering what other Pagans here do.

My activity within my path is made up of a lot of small things. I do make offerings to the gods, the ancestors, and the land spirits, but that's not an everyday thing. (I found out the hard way that making offerings to ancestors is NOT a foolproof method of getting one that I knew in life to quit showing up to yell at me for stuff other relatives have done, however.)

The main things are more mundane: drinking Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance certified coffee, downloading ebooks rather than using natural resources to keep paper books, buying local/sustainable products wherever possible, and being in charge of the battery recycling program at work, which the company offers but none of the other employees will be bothered to participate in or even let the customers know about. (Big deal--you drop the battery into the bag, close it along the self-adhesive line, drop it in the box. When the box gets full, print a label, stick it on the box, and give it to the UPS guy. But I'm the only one who cares.) I also refuse to wear certain jewelry, including anything diamond that's not either pre-owned or from a jeweler that buys only conflict-free diamonds and participates in the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme to prove it.

Basically, for me, the everyday aspect of my spirituality is first and foremost a respect for the earth. If I can reduce the amount of negative impact I have on the earth, then I feel that I'm offsetting my usage in other areas (like the fact that I live in an area where I HAVE to have heat and a car, and the fact that the car that's available to me right now is a minivan).
