Wellness and sustainability: how to take care of yourself and respect the environment
Wellness and sustainability: how can we make a difference?
How can wellness and sustainability coexist when it comes to personal care and environmental protection?
Respecting yourself and the environment, that is, combining wellness and sustainability, means taking care of the natural balance of your body and protecting that of our planet, which is a complex system made up of delicate mechanisms and resources to be protected for future generations.
Health, wellness and sustainability are closely intertwined. According to the Sustainable Development Goal no. 3 (Health and Wellness) of the 2030 Agenda, to protect the environment and ensure global prosperity it is necessary to promote a sustainable use of resources and a healthy lifestyle. Agenda 2030 is an action program for people, the planet and prosperity signed in September 2015 by the governments of the 193 UN member countries.
To reduce our environmental impact and live in a greener way, it is not enough to adopt responsible behaviors in everyday life, such as turning off the water when brushing your teeth or the light when we leave a room, or choosing a bicycle for a car. We must also make conscious consumer choices. For example, for the beauty routine, we should prefer cosmetics produced in respect of the environment by brands that care about personal care and sustainability. These are brands that choose clean and light formulas, with natural, biodegradable and cruelty free ingredients, and packaging in recycled, recyclable and ecological materials.
Speaking of the relationship between wellness and sustainability, nutrition is also essential. Paying attention to the food we eat means protecting our wellness and the planet. Eating healthy does not mean giving up taste, but preferring dishes based on vegetables, fruit, legumes and cereals, without exceeding the portions to avoid waste, and choosing local and seasonal products.
A dietary model that focuses on psychophysical balance and respect for nature is the Ayurvedic cuisine. It is based on the principles of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicine known and practiced all over the world, and on the idea that we are what we eat. In fact, for Ayurveda food not only nourishes the body, but is a source of emotional wellness. Of course, a healthy, correct and balanced diet must be accompanied by regular physical activity, which naturally accelerates the metabolism, prevents disease and improves general health.
In addition to eating healthily, without excess, and practicing at least 50-300 minutes per week of moderate intensity aerobic activity or 75-150 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity (or equivalent combinations of the two modalities), the Italian Institute for Healthcare recommend to adults between 18 to 64 to rediscover the harmony between body, mind and spirit taking a break from the routine and indulge in moments of relaxation.
An answer to today’s problems such as stress, anxiety, poor posture and stiffness is meditation, part of the millenary discipline of yoga. But there are also the benefits of Ayurveda medicine treatments, such as the Abhyangha massage which helps to regain physical and mental energy.
