I know during this time we are supposed to stay at home, isolated from others, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go outside and have our fun in the sun. The question is, what is there to do while outside? Well, there are plenty of activities to do alone or in a group, so here is a list of activities to do outdoors.
During this time we are supposed to stay at home, but that is almost impossible considering we have to constantly restock on supplies. There are people who still have to go to work as well. Now, there are ways to prevent yourself from getting sick, like washing hands, wearing masks, and keeping yourself distant from others, but there is also another way that is not talked about as much. Eating foods with good sources of vitamin D and C is known to help boost your immune system. Strengthening your immune system helps you have a smaller chance of getting sick. So, for those who have to go to work or just want to not get sick, here is a list of vegan vitamin D and C sources.
I haven't been sick with a cold or have had intense cold symptoms in years (knock on wood). I literally remember the last time I was sick. It was my second year of college. My colds always began with a sore throat, and that one started bothering me at night as I was trying to sleep. My nose was also blocked, causing my throat to be dry, worsening the pain. I wen't to school that morning, but ended up coming right back because the instructor suggested that I take a day. Back home the intense throat pain made me feel as if I were going to vomit.
Though I wasn't sick as often as some people are back then, catching a cold when I did was very frustrating for me. I couldn't imagine what it's like having the flu, which I've never had.
Sleep is a very important part of maintaining a healthy body; it's like recharging your batteries for the next day. Unfortunately, a lot of us aren't getting enough sleep. We are staying up late to finish projects, or homework, watching TV, Netflix, Hulu, etc., playing video games, or partying. We kind of dismiss the importance of sleep. We’ll wake up the next morning feeling drowsy and get a fix of caffeine to wake us up, which can hurt the body in the long run. If we understand sleep, we will take it more seriously.
“I don't like the taste!”
“I'll have to use the bathroom all the time.”
“I have a hard time remembering to drink it.”
Do you use any of those excuses, or any other excuses, for why you're not drinking enough water? It's time to consider the health benefits of chugging h2o before we utter another tired excuse:
One of the biggest concerns in a vegan diet is, where do you get protein? This information is not very common when it comes to learning about veganism. There are, surprisingly, a lot of vegan options that have good sources of protein. They are actually consumed daily by vegans, but because of the lack of knowledge about these products, we think we are not consuming enough protein. So, I decided to make a list of the most common foods that are consumed by vegans that are a good source of protein.
We were all kids at some time, right? At certain points in our childhood, our peers became very important, and their opinions even more so. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who was tempted to do something that my mom explicitly told me not to do, or tempted to not do something that I knew I was ordered to do. At the time, it definitely seemed worth whatever consequences I would face. Oh, how wonderful it would’ve been if someone had given my mom some tricks to get me to follow her rules!
Well this is your lucky day. I’m going to give you some pointers on how to keep your children vegan in a non-vegan world. Getting them to obey you in other situations is up to you.
The holidays have officially come to an end, and it is now time to get back to working on getting the ideal weight you wanted. Doing a lot of cardio is one common way to help, but it is not the only way to lose weight. How you eat is also important in helping to lose weight. Most times, people workout everyday but do not eat right. This is usually the case because the information of what to eat is not always easy to find. We are always told to eat vegetables and drink water, but there is more to it than just that. So to help with the lack of knowledge, I will make a list of what should and should not be eaten to help lose weight.
