One small behaviour change that can lead to a healthy community

There is no excuse why we can not eat a healthy diet.  Healthy eating is easier than ever. That’s because we know so much more about what a healthy diet looks like than we ever have before. Choosing healthy seasonal foods based on sound science remains the best-known way to reduce your chances of developing cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune diseases. A sustainable diet is possibly the single most crucial factor that determines your health and longevity.

The courage to take advice

The courage to take advice

Advice is a funny old thing, many of us are happy to give it, not so many of us like to act upon it. There are those of us who overindulge on advice-receiving; somehow, they are rewarded by the process of reviving advice, but they also feel they need more before even considering acting on any of it.  Rather than following good advice and work towards their goals, they make the act of receiving advice the goal. But when did validation produce results?  At some point in time, we all need to start putting the advice into action to be successful.

I'm going to get straight to the point I was going to make at the end: sustainability is a lifestyle. It's not about embracing a diet, a training programme or a mindset for a month. It's about making a choice to be healthy to approach the future with energy and vitality, making small manageable adjustments in the right direction. We are not going to stop global warming in one day. One day is not enough, nor is a year, nor ten: sustainability for the environment implies consistency of effort. We are not different. It's about the habit of making better daily choices, not about being seeking perfection and giving up on it blaming unattainability. Perfection is not sustainable, it doesn't fit our lifestyle. Managing stress for mental serenity, eating thoughtfully, moving playfully and sleeping deeply are all factors that can add to our base of health to improve all aspects of life.
