How To Gain Healthy Environment

by Aaron Finch

You can’t control the world, but you can always control how you react to it. It’s a cliché, but sometimes clichés are true.

 Before judging that somebody else is acting in an environmentally irresponsible way, take a deep breath and ask yourself one question: what would I do in their shoes?

There’s a lot of pressure to live in a sustainable way these days – whether it be buying organic or driving electric – but there are plenty of ways for people who don’t have the same privilege as others to contribute too.

The key is honesty and reflection when making decisions about your own life and how your choices impact others around you.

How To Gain Healthy Environment :

1. Eat healthy – 

Supporting your body’s ability to maintain a healthy immune system and fight off infections. It is important to get at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.

2. Exercise – 

Exercising regularly promotes cardiovascular health, while also keeping your body fit and healthy. 

While you can’t control the weather, you can always control your physical environment, so choose to exercise outside as much as possible.

3. Sleep – 

Getting a good night’s sleep can help you function better during the day, especially if you need to be more alert or attentive at work or school. 

During sleep, your body completes its natural discarding of foreign particles that may have entered through breathing or eating during the day.

4. Minimise toxic exposure –  

Getting lots of toxins into your body can wreak havoc on your health. Exposure to heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium affect the brain and nervous system.

 These toxins can also cause damage to the eyes and kidneys by causing oxidative stress or inflammation.

 Avoid or eliminate them from your life as much as you can by buying organic products, avoiding processed food and by keeping your environment as clean and toxin free as possible.

5. Drink water – 

Dehydration can lead to all kinds of health issues, including: headaches, muscle cramps, constipation, poor memory and confusion. 

Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. This may seem like a lot, but it is easy to do if you just make it part of your daily routine.

6. Avoid alcohol and drugs – 

Alcohol and drug abuse leads to issues such as the destruction of the immune system and cirrhosis (which damages your liver). 

It also contributes to poor decision making which can be harmful or fatal in certain situations.

7. Avoid foods with high levels of pesticides – 

While all produce can be potentially contaminated by pesticides, high levels especially in the produce sold at supermarkets, can affect your health. 

Limit your intake of fruits and vegetables, especially those high up on the pecking order – i.e.; potatoes and apples – as they are highest in pesticide residues and least likely to be washed or peeled. 

Additionally, buy organic vegetables whenever possible to limit exposure to synthetic pesticides that may be used in conventional farming which may not always be washed or peeled off the produce before being placed into supermarket shelves. 

While you cannot control everything that happens around you, you can control how you react to it; act responsibly by supporting healthy environments for others and yourself.

8. Reduce waste –

Reducing your household waste is a great way to help the planet. Recycle as many materials as possible and buy products that use recycled materials. 

Avoid disposable items like plastic cutlery and water bottles, as these contribute to landfills. Use cloth bags for shopping, instead of using plastic bags or boxes. 

Buy multi-use products or re-fillable packaging whenever possible. 

Make sure you recycle as much of your trash as possible by separating glass, paper, cardboard and metal from your garbage can or yellow bin in order to reduce the amount of contaminants in the landfill.

9. Use eco-friendly cleaning products – 

Instead of using chemicals to clean your house, you can create all-natural cleaners using baking soda and vinegar. 

There are also many brands that sell eco-friendly products like Seventh Generation and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day.

10. Respect nature – 

Remember to be respectful of nature in order to avoid accidental damage or injury. 

For example, if you are hiking, pick up any litter you come across so that it doesn’t end up in the ocean or somewhere else where animals can get hurt or sick by it.

11. Support organic farming – 

Organic farming avoids the use of synthetic chemicals and animal waste in order to grow produce.

 It also limits water consumption and energy use in agriculture, so it is better on the planet than standard farming.

 Support organic farmers by buying their products whenever possible and also by making your own produce using organic ingredients whenever you can as this reduces your environmental impact on the world.
