It has been proven that when families eat meals together they:
- increase their fruit and vegetable consumption
- it's better for their body
- it's better for their emotional health and spirit
and thanks to COVID 40% more families are cooking meals at home. Which, I'm not sure about you, but I truly believe that is something we can all feel good about.
I know that life will begin to pick up again for everyone as things start to find a new rhythm and I understand that it may be difficult to eat dinner together every night, but I do hope that you will practice eating more with your family.
It is the #1 best healthy practice you can have as a family, it keeps you and your family connected, and it is the foundation for a healthy nation.
We must start making our own personal health and our families health OUR priority! We must research, gather, learn, and determine what is best for our own family in regards to health and wellness. It is imperative for us to become an ACTIVE member in the health and medical decisions that we are being faced with.
I know that for my family I am focusing on supporting their immune system with exercise, plant based nutrition (we do eat everything, but focusing on plants), drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, practicing breathing and meditation techniques to decrease stress and practicing positive thoughts.
Have you found a silver lining during this time of social distancing?
