Take Care of Your Mind, Body, and Mother Earth:
Each of us can play a role in resolving the challenges our planet faces by being
conscious about our choices. Even small, consistent eco-friendly habits can leave a positive long-term impact. These eco-friendly habits not only help protect the planet but also improve your health and well-being.
Keep Indoor Plants
Air pollution is a major challenge today, especially for people who live in cities. Keeping indoor plants can improve the air quality of your home. They’re also an excellent idea for home decor. And you can also grow herbs like basil and add them to your cooking!
Eat a Plant-Based Diet
Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of global warming, the destruction of rainforests, and many other environmental issues. Eating a plant-based diet is among the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Plant-based diets have been proven to prevent and treat several chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc. In addition, they are an abundant source of antioxidants and vitamins that help you stay healthy and vibrant.
This may not sound easy but starting with one to two times a week will also create an impact.
Choose Sustainable, Organic Products
Organic produce is grown without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Synthetic
chemicals pollute soil and freshwater bodies. They’re also harmful to our health,
especially for people with allergies to certain chemicals. It doesn't have to be an expensive affair to switch to organic or zero-waste products if you equate it to what you would be spending on your health issues in the future if you didn't.
Disconnect From Technology Once in a While
Thanks to the Internet and social media, we are constantly inundated with information all day. It can be rewarding for our mental health to take a break from our devices now and then. Staying glued to screens may be the reason many of us to have a sedentary lifestyle. Disconnecting and spending time outdoors can do wonders for our mental, physical, and spiritual health. Go for a hike, walk, or spend time in nature.
Choosing to adopt eco-friendly habits can help us cultivate a healthy relationship with ourselves and our planet. These practices can help us create a better tomorrow by making better choices today.
