5 habits to implement in your day to day
I am really pleased to see that more and more people want to live in harmony with nature and are turning to the search for a healthier, more peaceful and ethical lifestyle. If you are also ready to take a step towards such a lifestyle, you are lucky, because in my opinion, spring is the most suitable time to introduce changes in your habits.
Here are 5 suggestions that can help!
1. Eat a full and balanced diet
This is definitely no surprise to you, because nutrition has always been the main prerequisite for a healthy lifestyle. Introduce more fresh plant-based products into your menu – fruits, vegetables, berries, nuts, seeds, cereals and legumes. Reduce the consumption of fatty, fried and sweet foods and follow regular meals.
Most importantly, do not forget to drink, because water is vital for the functioning of our body. Lack of water affects physical and mental health, and also accelerates the aging process throughout the body. A universal formula for the optimal amount of liquid is 30 milliliters of water per 1 kilogram of weight.
2. Practice physical activity for at least 90 minutes a week
Our body is designed to be constantly in motion, so lack of physical activity often results in back pain, overweight, high blood pressure, loss of energy and joy of life. To keep yourself in tone, do sports 3 to 4 times a week. Start the day with gymnastics, a rhythmic morning walk, an exhilarating run, or throw a curveball with a wheel. Do anything that brings you joy and move!
3. Take care of your emotional health
Mental health is a very important prerequisite for well-being. To improve your emotional health, try to think positively, learn new skills, try meditation and get a good night's sleep. It is sleep that ensures the balance and stability of the functioning of the central nervous system.
4. Choose ethical and environmentally friendly products
Another step towards a more environmentally friendly and ethical lifestyle is responsible shopping. If you are reading this blog, you may not be unfamiliar with a vegan lifestyle, however, if you want to take it seriously, remember that veganism is not just about food. This is a lifestyle that involves not only a specific dietary regimen, but also a different perception of life in general. Most of the cosmetics, body care and household chemicals available in stores are tested on animals to make sure that any of the ingredients used are not harmful to humans. Therefore, when purchasing beauty products or household chemicals, choose products marked "cruelty-free" and "vegan", thus supporting ethically and responsibly manufactured products that are not tested on animals and do not contain animal substances.
5. Review your wardrobe and get acquainted with the composition when buying a new outfit
The use of animals in the manufacture of clothing is also as cruel as in other industries. Fortunately – nowadays there are many ethical alternatives to choose from. Most of the vegan wardrobe can be purchased at any clothing store, and most casual clothes are already vegan. Also, many shoes, belts, bags and coats are made from materials of non-animal origin. When shopping, choose clothes that include artificial leather and suede, cotton, cork, polyurethane, microfiber, linen, acrylic, polyester, recycled plastic, synthetic materials, bamboo, hemp, denim, nylon, artificial down and thermolyte.
These are just a few suggestions that, if you follow step by step, you can change your daily habits.
