5 Ways To Save The Environment

There are many different ways to protect the environment we live in. But here are 5 incredible ways to help save the planet:

SWITCH YOUR LIGHTS & ELECTRICALS OFF

By switching the light off behind you when you're finished. This helps reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. So things such as not leaving your electrical equipment on standby and using cooler washing cycles all contribute to making a considerable difference. 

Did you know that if we all turn just 2 lights off in our homes for 1 hour per day, we'd save more than 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year nationwide. The amount of coal could fill the empire state building 3 times.  

Using less electricity lowers mercury levels in the air, which means;

  • Less sulphur dioxide in the air causing less acid rain
  • Less nitrogen oxide causing the gas which leads to smog
  • Less carbon monoxide which can cause headaches and even death
  • Few hydrocarbons forming the ozone layer
  • Less arsenic which is cancer causing

SAVE WATER

Becoming more water efficient is so important in protecting our environment and saving our planet. Saving water helps protect your countries water supplies and keeps your environment healthy. A lot of the water from our reservoirs, bays and rivers are treated wastewater facilities which use a lot of energy, contributing to higher levels of pollution. It can also save you money and keep the wildlife around you happier and healthier. Try collecting rainwater and making sure leaky valves are tightened up.

GO VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN

Did you know that going veggie, can actually save the planet? I kid you not, going vegetarian or vegan makes a massive impact on reducing your carbon footprint. It is also the most naturally sustainable way to eat. 

Still not convinced? Here are some ways you're increasing your carbon footprint just by eating meat;

  • Overheating the planet, we eat 230m tonnes of meat which need food and water to grow, producing a lot of methane.
  • Using an excessive amount of land, you use much less land just growing fruits and vegetables that you can eat. 
  • Too much water, the amount of water needed to grow a pound of beef is nearly 9000 litres of water, with only 229 pounds of water for 1 pound of potatoes.
  • Deforestation, tropical rainforests are being butchered just so that the land can be used for grazing cattle, and livestock animals.
  • Poisoning the earth, rivers are polluted each year by leaking manure and urine from overcrowded animal factories. Large factory farms release shed loads of greenhouses gases such as methane and carbons dioxide, cows and pigs produce even more polluting gas.
Did you know that in Brazil the equivalent of 5.6 million acres of land is used just to grow soya beans for animals in Europe. which contributes heavily to work malnutrition in the developing world because they cannot grow food for themselves.
PLANT A TREE, GROW A VEGETABLE GARDEN
One of the best ways to save our planet and combat climate change is to plant a tree or start a garden. Trees and plants clean and cool the air. Plants also conserve energy by doing so. Trees are the lungs of the planet, they take in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen, they provide shelter and homes for many animals and wildlife too. 
Planting a garden is good for the environment because we can attract and give homes to different wildlife, compost our food waste, collect rainwater and more. Eating your own home grown food, saves money on food bills and transport, it's good for your mind and body and reduces pollution directly.
CLEANSE WITH 13SOAPS
Protect the planet by not supporting large corporations that don't care about the planet or our health. Large companies sell us chemically laden products with perfumes and unnatural substances. Causing rashes, skin irritation, inflammation and more. They not only pollute our bodies but our water, our environment, and our planet. 

Deforestation for the use of palm oil is absolutely devastating the world's beautiful rain forests. 13Soaps use absolutely no palm oil in their product and only use 100% recycled card stock packaging. 13soaps use the healing power of plants and nature.

      Health Benefits of Sitting Next to Trees


      Trees absorb carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen. Chinese Taoist Masters believe trees hold powerful healing properties, as well as the ability to absorb negative energy and turn it into positive energy (much like they do with carbon dioxide into oxygen).

      An experiment conducted in 2004 by Japan’s National Land Afforestation Promotion Organization indicated that people who simply looked at a forest for twenty minutes had a lower concentration of the stress hormone, cortisol, in their bodies. Furthermore, a significant amount of research has shown that simply being in nature and amongst the trees helps to decrease stress and anxiety, thereby increasing a number of health benefits.

      This is demonstrated by the Japanese concept, Shinrin-yoku, meaning “forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”, which was developed in the 1980’s, and has become central to preventative healthcare in Japan. It is a simple concept based on the idea that if a person walks in a relaxed way in nature, they can achieve restorative health benefits.  Proven health benefits of Shinrin-yoku include increased immune functioning, reduced blood pressure, reduced stress, improved sleep and mood, increased energy, and accelerated recovery times.

      It is believed that the best trees for healing are big trees, particularly pine trees as they radiate Chi (energy or the life force), nourish blood, strengthen nervous systems, and contribute to long lives.

      Here are 7 Health Benefits of Sitting Next to Trees:

      1. Helps Eliminate Negative Energy

      Change Your Breathing, Change Your Life!

      Focusing on your own breathing can have a significant impact on your well-being and stress levels, and can even create physiological changes like lowering your blood pressure. For thousands of years, the yogic practice of pranayama (Sanskrit for "extension of the life-force") has been used as a method geared towards reducing stress and healing the body and mind through targeted breathing exercises.

      Here are 9 Benefits of Deep Breathing!

       

      Stimulate brain growth! When controlled breathing is used during meditation, it can actually increase the size of the brain. Meditation that involves focusing one’s attention on the breath has the capacity to increase cortical thickness, according to a 2005 Harvard Study.

      Improve heart rate variability! Low heart rate variability (the interval of time between heartbeats) has been associated with a greater risk of heart attacks. A 2012 study found that non-yogic deep breathing practices can improve heart rate variability in healthy test subjects.

      Lower stress levels! If your breathing is shallow, your body is probably in ‘fight-or-flight’ mode reacting to stress, says Ardito. Taking a minute or two to sit quietly and focus on your breathing helps your body achieve a state of calm, shifting from functioning out of the sympathetic nervous system (characterized by drive, flight and ambition) to the parasympathetic nervous system, which puts the body in a state of ‘relax and receive.”

      Alleviate anxiety & negative emotions! Many of us have felt short of breath during times of panic or stress. This is the body's natural reaction to a perceived threat, says Ardito. Focusing on breathing can help to alleviate anxiety, symptoms of depression, and other negative emotions. Last year, Australian researchers found that deep breathing 30 minutes before a performance effectively reduced musicians performance anxiety.

      Reduce testing anxiety! A 2007 study published in journal Teaching and Learning in Medicine found that students who practiced deep-breathing meditation before an exam reported perceiving less anxiety, self-doubt and concentration loss than the students who did not practice deep breathing.

      Lower blood pressure! Taking slow, deep breaths for just a few minutes a day could help to lower your blood pressure, according to Dr. David Anderson of National Institutes of Health. While researchers have observed that slow, deep breaths can help to relax and temporarily dilate blood vessels, they don't yet know precisely why deep breathing has the capacity to cause a lasting drop in blood pressure, Anderson tells NBC News.

      Balance the left & right hemispheres of the brian! Breathing in through your left nostril will access the right “feeling” hemisphere of your brain, and breathing in through your right nostril, will access the left “thinking” hemisphere of your brain.  Consciously alternating your breath between either nostril will allow you to activate and access your whole brain.

      Cleanses the lungs! A daily five minute practice morning and night of alternate nostril breathing is great way to remove stale air and impurities from the bottom of your lungs. Did you know that 70% of our body’s waste products are eliminated via our lungs.

      Improves Sleep! If you can’t sleep at night lay on your right hand side, gently close your right nostril with your right thumb and breath through your left nostril. This will activate your parasympathetic nervous system which will calm you down and slow your heart rate.  Left nostril breathing is cooling, calming and nourishing for your whole being.

      Eucalyptus Oil is known to help decongust the Lungs helping you Breathe Better. Shower your way into a Healthier Life Style Pick up El Moor Soap Today!
