Living Well: Doing Our Part – Wellness & the Environment
With the U.N.’s World Environment Day approaching on June 5, we’ve rounded up some ways you can incorporate an earth-friendly approach into your personal wellness routine.
Choose a Reusable Water Bottle
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated, especially in the summer. Reaching for a reusable water bottle, and challenging ourselves to refill it twice daily, is smart wellness!
Bike/Walk to Work
Get your daily exercise, get outside, and save some mileage! Leave your car at home and map out a way to bike or walk to work. Encourage your whole family to participate by planning a route that includes your children’s school.
Consciously Pack Your Lunch
50% of the plastics we use are single-use or disposable. Packing your lunch in reusable containers or food wrap is a great solution to lessen our use of single-use plastics.
Expand Your Garden
While enjoying some fresh air and vitamin D in your back yard or patio, why not expand your garden by planting a tree or building a planter? The additional plants will contribute to air purification and oxygen production.
