We live in a world full of stimuli. During our daily life we are surrounded by announcements, cell phone ringtones, phone calls, conflicts, screams, difficult situations … If we add the strange and chaotic COVID situation, the cocktail could not be more explosive. It is not difficult to understand that, as explained by the General Council of Psychology, 96% of the inhabitants of Spain have suffered an episode of stress during the last year and 42% have it recurrently; frightening data, right?

You know that, in #Greenvita, we are very fond of good food, healthy eating, and healthy living! And to do that, you have to deal with stress. This is the reason why we dedicate, whenever we can, newsletters, blogs or posts on our social networks, to deal with this delicate and important topic in our lives because, damn stress can manifest itself physically, emotionally, cognitively or in the behaviour, and it is necessary to reduce so it does not become the trigger for more serious problems such as chronic stress, heart attacks, strokes or the weakening of the immune system, among other pathologies. So, in order to eliminate it from our lives we need to follow some guidelines. Today, in this blog, some of the best techniques to face it!! And to do that, is there a better way than to follow the advice of the best doctors and specialists in the field?

Well… I see my mistake now!! I’ve been writing and writing, consuming this post and not explaining the most important part: The tips!! Well, let’s go with them: exercise, balanced diet, systemic desensitization, relaxation, meditation and self-control.

Easy, right? It has not been my best blog and best explanation better, I assume it but… sure you want to know more about them!! So, in future blogs I will delve into each of the techniques. It’s a promise!! Until then, breath! Don’t stress out!

When we talk about pollution, we easily think about air pollution through vehicles or factories, waste such as plastics or hard-to-decompose waste, or even toxic materials for the environment. But an act as daily as personal hygiene based on soaps and / or detergents is highly damaging to the planet and seems to go more unnoticed than those mentioned above.

Soap has been present in our history for years. In the beginning, it was made naturally, with natural oils and aromatic plants that gave them pleasant smells. With the passage of time and the arrival of the industry, this type of product has been exploited to the point that it is not only a product of first necessity, but that the brands have been mutating to transform it into a more exclusive product.

And it is precisely now, when we begin to wonder about the impact of soaps and detergents on our planet, that its manufacturing is at its highest point. The main problem is clear, in its elaboration process large quantities of a non-renewable resource essential for the existence of life are wasted and contaminated: water.

We must take into account a series of important points that affect the environment:

  • Biodegradability: Only soaps with the surfactant (substance of the soaps that causes damage to aquatic life) that lose 90% of its property of decreasing the surface tension of the water after 28 days of being discharged can be labeled as biodegradable.
  • Eutrophication: Many conventional detergents use phosphates, phosphonates or percarboxylates as enhancers. These substances act as algae fertilizers, causing them to reproduce very quickly. The large amount of algae depletes the oxygen in the water, which is no longer available for aquatic fauna (microbes and fish), and generates bad odors. In addition to causing very serious imbalances in lakes and rivers.
  • Bleachers: Although bleaching agents are rarely used in these types of products, they could sometimes contain chlorine or oxygen. One of the main problems of the chlorine industry is that it generates organochlorine substances, such as dioxins and furans, which cause many health problems such as: hormonal dysfunctions, malformations in the fetus and cancer, among others, and because they cannot be metabolized , accumulate in the tissues of living beings.
  • Antibacterial: Lately, many conventional detergents contain antibacterial agents. They have no practical utility, and instead can cause problems to aquatic bacterial life.
  • Packing: Although there are detergents that are presented in cardboard boxes, the tendency is to present conventional detergents and soaps in plastic containers. The most common is to use several types of plastic that can not be separated later, and therefore can not be recycled, and this is a serious problem for our planet.

As you can see, it is very important that we all become aware of it and begin to act thinking about the care of the planet and directly, in our own survival. Greenvita promote the use of soaps and biodegradable detergents, in addition to other substances for cleaning in general, which end up leading to drains, which in turn reach rivers and seas, causing serious contamination of the waters, which threatens the existence of many species.

One of the first steps to contribute to the reduction of pollution is to be aware of everything that pollutes, that we inform ourselves and seek alternatives free of waste, which are increasingly more, but we still need to give more prominence to all of them in Our day to day.

Good morning #GreenViters! As we know that today you start a new day, full of energy and health as always, today we want to talk about a very important element and generator of well-being in our lives: the sun.

It has always been, and will be, both the reason for our existence and a source of renewable energy but, in addition, the sun also presents multiple benefits for our health (always taking the appropriate precautions during long exposures).

First, sunbathing (5-10 minutes between two and three times a week) helps produce a very precious vitamin in our body: vitamin D. This vitamin is very important to help the body in the process of mineralization of bones, thus reducing the risk of osteoporosis. The production of this vitamin also helps increase circulation by reducing blood pressure.

Secondly, sunbathing not only improves the appearance of your skin from an aesthetic point of view, but also helps your skin to remove impurities trapped in your body. Also, the sun produces a stimulating effect on our defenses, since it has been shown that the sun is capable of increasing the number of white blood cells (our defenders against external agents trying to enter our body).

Finally, it is demonstrated that the seasons of the year with the highest solar incidence in us are those that present higher levels of happiness. Behind this statement is a scientific reason, and is that the sun’s rays (UV) increase the production of a neurotransmitter related to that feeling of happiness and well-being: serotonin. This neurotransmitter is related to the mood of our body, but also acts as a regulator of sleep and body temperature.

We hope you enjoyed our new blog post about the benefits of the sun on our health! Although, as you know, combining these benefits with other good lifestyle habits such as physical activity and a healthy and balanced diet, will help you improve the quality of your life up to levels that you have imagined. Eat well, live well!

What do you think about this informative video from the Generalitat about good habits to lead a life full of health and wellbeing?

We fully agree with all these practices and, in fact, those who know our GreenVita restaurants well also know that our philosophy follows all the good habits recommended in the video to the fullest. We can get great long-term benefits in our health just by applying small changes in our diet.

Everything begins by replacing harmful foods with more beneficial ones, such as swapping processed sweets by fruits and vegetables with large amounts of minerals, vitamins and fiber; or complementing your dishes with nuts for the energy, minerals and vegetable proteins they provide. Moreover, regular exercise will cause both physical, psychological and emotional changes in your body thanks to the stimulus of neurotransmitters that will produce that feeling of well-being that we so desire.

For that reason, we at GreenVita do our best to bring these benefits to you, both with the healthy food we provide at our restaurants and the sports and social activities such as yoga or health workshops that we organize (you can find the dates subscribing to our newsletter). You too can change to a lifestyle filled with well-being!
