Scientific evidence shows that there is a strong correlation between nature and health.
Scientific research shows many benefits of adopting a more eco-friendly lifestyle that is in touch with Nature. It may sound obvious to some of you, but research in recent years proves it: time in natural environments improves both physical and mental health.
In this 30 days to Go Green course I included all the things I have learned on my quest to a Greener, happier and healthier life. As a witness to my own journey towards change, I am convinced that this holistic approach to Going Green is truly life changing.
We all care about the environment. We want to make it better, but it’s so hard to know where to start. At the same time we all want a happy and healthy life. We are looking for ways to slow down and take a break from our hectic lives, to enjoy the present moment and to truly connect with our family and friends.
These days we hear so much about saving the planet, going Green, and being eco-friendly. But how can we realize our true goals of getting back in touch with nature, living a healthy lifestyle that doesn’t harm the Earth and becoming conscious, caring, happy individuals?
Seeing yourself as part of an eco-system where every living thing depends on the wellbeing of each other will change your life. Being conscious and mindful of each decision you make and every action you take means you are living in the moment, not just for yourself, but for your friends, family and your entire extended ecosystem, which includes everything on Earth. Yes, we are small, but what we do matters — most of all to those in our inner circle, but to a smaller degree our actions ripple throughout the whole world.
And we can waste less. We can live more naturally, more cleanly, more selflessly and more in touch with Nature. This is what I am doing every day and so can you! 30 days to Go Green will start you on the path towards a happy and healthy lifestyle motivated by love, caring and understanding. Does that sound like something you’d be into?
Whether you are a college graduate, a high school student, a mother of four or a busy businessman, this course will help you to become happier and healthier while reducing your carbon footprint at the same time. I have written and designed this course to provide you with the right knowledge, techniques and advice to be able to put what you are learning directly into practice.
Besides running BodhiandMind and writing e-courses like 30 days to Go Green, I am a busy entrepreneur in the European IT and media industry. For over 5 years I have worked as the founder and publisher of one of Europe's only environmental news website, while continuing to work as a project manager for several high-profile European firms.
My inspiration for enacting positive change within myself and the world around me comes from the change that took place in my own life when I turned to Nature for help, but also from having traveled the world and observing how people live — seeing what works for them and what doesn't.
My background as a Philosophy graduate and my daily interest in philosophy, literature and what it means to live a good life only serve to strengthen my enthusiasm and commitment to positive change.
Above all I have tried to find meaning in everyday life. And for me it means finding balance, happiness and health in the rush and chaos of daily life. It's about finding meaning and peace, away from the superficial and into the real. But more importantly its about doing things, changing things, learning and growing.
Today I'm still an entrepreneur. But besides being a businesswomen I am also an environmentalist, organic food advocate, philosopher, writer, teacher, meditation adept, runner and yoga practitioner. And believe it or not, it's by slowing down, living with less and connecting with Nature that I am now more active, healthier and happier than ever before.
