Planet Friendly Steps To Becoming A Healthier You

“Becoming a healthier you” generally refers to making positive changes in various aspects of your life to improve our overall well-being. 

Health can be complicated and multi-faceted.

It’s important to ask yourself what ‘health’ really means to you:

How do you define it?

How will you create it?

Our well-being encompasses not only physical, but mental, and sometimes even social aspects of life.

This month, we want to share with you some key steps that not only help you to become a healthier version of yourself, but also come at no harm to our planet.💚

This aligns with our mission here at Green Little Heart, to help you become the best version of yourself at no cost to our planet.


Let’s expand on the different health categories:

Physical Health:

This means:

  • Maintaining a healthy body through regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and sufficient sleep.
  • Managing weight and adopting habits that support cardiovascular health, muscle strength, and flexibility.


    • Choosing a balanced and nutrient-rich diet that provides essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
    • Paying attention to portion sizes and avoiding excessive consumption of processed or unhealthy foods.


Mental and Emotional Well-being:

    • This can include managing stress through stress-reduction techniques, mindfulness, and relaxation practices.
    • Cultivating positive mental health by addressing mental health challenges, fostering resilience, and seeking support when needed.

Social Health:

Something we don’t talk about often!

  • Nurturing positive relationships and connections with friends, family, and community.
  • Engaging in social activities that bring joy and a sense of belonging.

And finally…lifestyle choices.


“Becoming a healthier you” is a holistic journey that involves a combination of these above elements. 

It’s a process of making sustainable and positive changes to enhance your physical, mental, and emotional health, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and balanced life. 

Keep in mind that your definition of a “healthier you” may vary and be different to ours! It’s important to tailor your health goals to your unique needs and preferences.

Implementing planet-friendly habits not only benefits the environment but can also contribute to your overall well-being and personal satisfaction.

🌳 Here are some steps to help you become a healthier individual while being mindful of the planet:


Eat a Plant-Based Diet:

    • Reduce your carbon footprint by incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet. Plant-based diets are often associated with lower environmental impact and can contribute to improved health.

Choose Sustainable and Local Produce:

    • Support local farmers and reduce the environmental impact of transportation by choosing locally sourced and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Additionally, opt for products with eco-friendly certifications.

Minimize Food Waste:

    • Plan your meals, store food properly, and be mindful of expiration dates to minimize food waste. Consider composting organic waste to further reduce your environmental impact.

Embrace Reusable Products:

      • Switch to reusable items such as water bottles, shopping bags, and containers. This reduces the reliance on single-use plastics, which can be harmful to the environment.

Walk, Bike, or Use Public Transportation:

    • Choose sustainable transportation options whenever possible. Walking, biking, carpooling, or using public transportation can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier lifestyle.

Conserve Energy at Home / in the office:

    • Practice energy conservation at home by using energy-efficient appliances, turning off lights when not needed, and using natural light whenever possible. Consider using renewable energy sources if available.

Reduce Meat and Dairy Consumption:

    • Cutting back on meat and dairy consumption, or choosing sustainably sourced options, can be both environmentally friendly and beneficial for your health. Consider participating in initiatives like “Meatless Mondays.”

Embrace Minimalism:

    • Adopting a minimalist lifestyle can lead to less consumption and waste. Focus on quality over quantity and choose products that are durable and have a longer lifespan.

Connect with Nature:

    • Spend time outdoors, whether it’s hiking, gardening, or simply enjoying a walk in the park. Connecting with nature has been shown to reduce stress and improve mental well-being.

Practice Mindful Consumption: The Core Of Green Little Heart 💚

    • Before making a purchase, consider whether you truly need the item and its environmental impact. Opt for products with minimal packaging and those made from sustainable materials.


Remember that making small, sustainable changes over time can lead to a more significant positive impact. 

It doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

You aren’t changing the world overnight.

These small changes compound over time. 🌏
