In our blogs and newsletters we have dedicated lots of pages to tell you how important it is to choose healthy food and carry out healthy activities to improve your life but … nothing matters if a ‘perfect quinoa cooker’ eats his creation fast and leaning against the washing machine.
The healthy ingredients we always discover you, the most respectful cooking techniques, the healthiest combinations and dishes and, of course, all the physical activities we always talk about, are essential to be healthy… but, without any doubt, the environment in which we integrate these activities is essential too. Can you imagine a yoga session in the middle of the Passeig de Gràcia metro tunnel? Difficult, right?
Environment is a key element in our well-being and health. It is easy to understand that it is not the same to live in the middle of the countryside, with minimal pollutants, than in one of the most crowded and polluted cities in the world. But, although the macroenvironment plays a key role, so does what we could call ‘microenvironment’, that is, the closest environment: for example, where we eat (kitchen, living room, dining room…), how it is configured and decorated (chairs, tables …) and, also, with who we share our meals.
An organized environment helps our mood and reduces stress. (We will cover this topic in future blogs and newsletters!). For this reason, you will see that we take care of spaces with natural light, with plants that improve our mood and with natural products in our decoration.
Once we have a pleasant environment, we must find ‘our time’. It is useless to sit down and enjoy a magical environment if we only have 3 minutes to eat. Eating is one of the most important acts we do during the day and we must dedicate the time it deserves. And finally, something better than sharing a meal with someone? One looks for a better environment and dedicates more time to a meal if it has to be shared with someone special. Find that special person and enjoy.
And remember, eat well to live well!
