Vegan wellness is something that should be taken seriously.

Science show how a 35-minute walk five times a week provides significant health benefits
Vegan wellness is a term given to ensuring that the right nutrients are in your diet to be able to maintain optimal health. Most vegans do not know what to eat to keep them healthy and therefore rely on processed food which is anything but healthy.Vegan wellness also takes into account the negative effects of those who are against veganism and how the stigma attached to it affects your mental health and outlook on life.
Vegan wellness ensures that your training plan is suited to your diet plan and ensures that all macro and micro-nutrients are consumed in the right proportions daily.
Scientists have confirmed it only takes is thirty-five minutes of outdoor activity five times a week to significantly boost your health and wellbeing.
This doesn’t mean anything more than taking a brisk walk in the glens, forests, woods or parks. Even a walk down the promenade, if you live by the sea, will positively boost your health and wellbeing.
Have you ever seen those people that sit on park benches and just sit and take in the environment, the smell of nature and reflect on life? They are the happiest people.
There are both physical and mental health benefits to be had by spending a little time with nature in parks, woods or beaches each day.
It’s already been confirmed that eating five fruit and veg portions each day can significantly boost your health. Now connecting with nature five times a week also joins the race for achieving super health.
A study was carried out in the UK on 20,000 people. The study interviewed people regarding their activities and whether they spent time with nature or not in the week running up to the research.
5000 people reported that they had poor health and nearly half of them said they were not satisfied with their life in general which is a standard measure of wellbeing.
Only 1400 of those interviewed who spent at least two hours in nature said their health was poor, whilst around 6650 stated they were not satisfied with their life.
Researchers confirmed that it did not matter whether the two hours in nature were taken in one go or in a series of shorter visits, or whether people spent time in inner-city parks, woodlands or the beaches.
The research, which was published in the journal Scientific Reports, used data from a Natural England survey, the world’s largest study collecting data on people’s weekly contact with the natural world. It did not include time people spent in their gardens, as this was not measured.
