Step Up Your Plant-Based Lifestyle

Step Up Your Plant-Based Lifestyle

Did you know that the average American only gets about 5,000 steps per day? This is the equivalent of 2.5 miles. A minimum of 10,000 steps is the recommended amount of activity, for maintaining physical and mental well-being. Ten thousand steps is the recommendation because, unless you have a very active profession, you most likely won’t reach 10,000 without putting in some effort and incorporating physical activity into your lifestyle. Fitbit is one of the highest-quality pedometers, for the best price. You can buy a Fitbit as a wristband, small waistband clip, or a watch.  

     

                               

Tracking our steps may seem unnatural, but given the number of Americans with careers that require sitting for extended periods of time, a pedometer may give us that extra bit of awareness. So how will getting your steps make a difference in your life? You’ll notice:

  • A decrease in mental stress and anxiety
  • An increase in energy and focus
  • An improved mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Quicker, better results when treating and reversing chronic diseases with a plant-based diet
  • An improvement in mental acuity

Ten thousand steps may seem daunting, but in reality, it requires some effort, but not too much. Lots of small lifestyle changes, combined, can give you the steps you need for optimal health. In addition to your 30-minute walk, jog, run, or whatever form of exercise you choose, try including some of these small changes in your routine:

  • Park toward the back of the parking lot
  • Take the stairs
  • Spend 20 minutes before lunch taking a walk
  • If you sit the majority of the workday, every hour or two, stand up and walk around for a few minutes
  • Multi-task: take a walk while you’re on the phone, listening to a podcast, or even catching up on the news

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics
From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
