To save life and the planet, it is important to follow an eco-friendly lifestyle. This will not only elongate your life span but also helps in sustainable development. Breathing in better air, living in a cleaner atmosphere, eating better food, and drinking purer water - all ensure a healthier body. Moreover, the improved aesthetics of a clean environment has positive psychological effects on your brain! Protecting your environment is of utmost importance in ensuring your good health. Following are the key health benefits of having an eco-friendly lifestyle,

  1. An eco-friendly human would automatically engage in more physical activity, as they’d attempt to choose walking or cycling over driving or using public transport whenever possible. Increased physical activity is directly correlated to one’s health and fitness.

  2. An eco-friendly lifestyle entails the consumption of more organic food which allows more nutrition and fewer pesticides or chemicals to enter your body. Hence, one becomes less exposed to carcinogenic compounds and other diseases causing immunity hampering chemicals. Moreover, when one is producing their own vegetables, they end up consuming more seasonal items, which ensures a better diet.

  3. City air has multiple pollutants even in the absence of smog that can cause diseases. Fresh or pure air not only contains more oxygen but also lacks harmful pollutants and microparticles that adversely affect one’s health. Hence, an environment-friendly lifestyle allows one to improve the quality of the air they breathe and thus, avoid life-threatening diseases. We can do this by replacing our regular vehicles with eco-friendly ones. Also, try carpooling to reduce the emission of pollutants.

  4. Cholera, diarrhea, typhoid are just a few waterborne diseases that are transmitted via unclean drinking water. Hence, an improved environment ensures the supply of cleaner water, allowing one to consume its minerals while avoiding its pollutants.

Protecting the environment by adopting eco-friendly habits not only improves our own health but also helps us ensure a healthy life for our future generation!
