As we take a look around us with all we have going on today. COVID-19, has raised its ugly head yet again. Numbers of on the rise, and people are forced to stay put. The most aggravating about this is lives have been affected. Many have lost loved ones and not able to say a proper goodbye.
We are definitely living in some crazy times. I like most, have lots of questions when it comes to this pandemic?
Where did it really come from?
What is the solution to this problem? (Because locking everyone away for a time, does not fix the real issue, but rather prolongs it.)
What does this mean for 2021? Is this the new normal? Masks, Social Distancing..
How did we even get to this point?
I’ve heard so many conspiracies about CoVid19 and how it all came about. From population control to a source of the U.S. government’s plan to control the masses. Either way we literally seeing both unfold before our very eyes.
What does this have to do with Plant Based Power? (You ask?) I am encouraged because in all the madness, CoVid19 has caused us to at least take a look at our health, and consider some dietary changes be made to strengthen our immune system. This system is designed to compromise your immune system. If nothing else it should wake us up and get on the right track to a healthier way of living.
Here are a few tips?
Go out to eat less or not at all.
This is hard to do for some, because with work schedules and life there seems to be no time to do this. But remember, you at least know that you make and the only hands to that touched your food was yours.
Incorporate some form of exercise.
With things shutting down again, and Netflix Hulu, and TV, on the rise. All we have left to do is eat and watch TV. If you are able to get outside please do so as much as possible. Go for a walk, (especially after a meal) can help with digestion, strengthen your cardiovascular health, and build your immune system, and protect you from viruses like the flu. (Dress weather appropriately)
Pay closer attention to the labels.
Usually if it’s in a box or package, reading the content is usually a good idea. As an InstaCart shopper, all I have to say on this is (Yikes). If only you knew what people are buying more and more of it would completely blow you away.
Do something that challenges your brain.
This is something I can definitely get behind and I can honestly say even I need to do more of this. Read more. Reading can be stimulating, and helps brain function.
I actually found this article to be very helpful.
I never knew any of this, it’s so cool…
Family Game nights are also something I can get behind. Sometimes it’s ok to be the entertainment instead of being entertained.
You’d be surprised how entertaining your family can be playing Monopoly or the game of Life…
I say all this to say. Leading the Way means you should be leading the way. Becoming a better version of you daily. Don’t be afraid to change what you normally do and try something out of the ordinary. Go against the grain, and do what others don’t expect you to do.
My running Coach (Nike Run App) Coach Bennett, always say You’re a Bad Ass…lol.
To me this simply means You Got This…
Until next time…Take care of yourselves and especially care for those around us not doing so well. It’s not just about us…
