Yet another pandemic raining down on humanity and the rest of the Planet’s many residences.

What does it truly say about humans and the level of consumption, standards and how we manage and care for our selves and Mother Earth?

What led to this ? Over population and over consuming? Just these two alone can sum up a lot more than you think.

Well, we all know that the corona virus triggered from a wet market selling exotic and wild species of animals. A place that didn’t take care of its hygiene standards and the proper way of keeping poultry and other species of animals. This led to a concoction of disaster.

A place that provides the community with a consistent source of daily wild life livestock , a place that’s only concern was the demand and profits.

Now, I won’t be able to comment on another country’s culture so look at it in the point of view of a consumer.

As a general concern for the planet, let’s highlight how much we eat a lot .

Lots of chicken, beef, maybe fish too, we buy big , we stock up and we overeat.

What if we just ate what was enough..? What if we managed our cravings and ate big when it’s truly a celebration ? Enjoy a feast when it’s a form of a reward or something comforting on a bad day?

How about eating nutritiously ? How about not eating meat on the daily?

We can manage all these.

The recent realization of this high rate of consumption just hit a chord with our household. So the last few months, we’ve cut down on our meat products and food consumption in general . We eat nutritiously and just enough to get through the day in a healthy way. We’ve been taking supplements the last 6-8 months and we’re exercising more. Or at least doing more outdoor activities.

It’s a trying time to adjust but with very little difficulty, it was an adjustment worth taking. A step towards the right direction.

All of us must do our part into this new lifestyle change and maintain a good balance with our Earth. You don’t have to be an activist or an eco warrior just to make a difference..


Change and live a more revitalized and a more balanced lifestyle.

Love you loads,
