Research shows that there is a powerful link between the amount of exercise we incorporate and our body’s immune system. We also know that aerobic exercise strengthens our cardiovascular health, and even slow and mindful practices like yoga and tai chi decrease blood pressure and cholesterol.
If you watched my Broken Brain docu-series, our experts discussed the critical role of exercise in preventing cognitive decline. Exercise strengthens our memory and makes us sharper, happier, and more resilient. Studies show that vigorous exercise is a better antidepressant than Prozac.
Exercise creates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is basically Miracle Grow for your brain. When you exercise, your brain becomes more elastic. Exercise also helps to improve your mood, boost your energy, and reduce overall stress in your body and mind.
Daily movement also enhances detoxification by stimulating the colon and releasing toxins through your sweat. It boosts detoxification of environmental chemicals. Vigorous exercise will help you work up a sweat, but gentle exercise keeps your circulation going and flushes out all the toxic fluids that build up in your lymphatic system. Even just lying on your back and putting your legs straight up against the wall for 20 minutes can make a huge difference.
Clearly daily movement has whole body benefits. These are just a few of them. The question becomes, how do we incorporate movement daily? Here are three simple ways.
🗓 Make it a priority and think ahead.
⏰ Do it first thing in the morning.
🕺🏻Make it fun by trying something new.
Ever since I’ve made movement part of my life, I notice that I’m happier, calmer, stronger, and I just feel good. If you could put exercise into a pill, it would be a blockbuster drug. So I encourage you to get up today and move your body, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Eating is an agricultural, environmental, a political act, not just a personal one. What we eat affects how food is grown, which food is grown, and which agricultural methods are used.
Is our food grown in ways that produce the most nutrient-dense food, conserve water, build soil, reverse climate change, and increase the biodiversity of plants, insects, and animals? Or does it produce food that drives sickness and environmental destruction?
Simply put the Pegan Diet is a regenerative diet—one that regenerates human and planetary health. In other words, no matter what dietary approach we choose, we should all be regeneterian. This is something I believe we can all agree on.
A diet that heals us, heals the environment, and reverses climate change. Becoming a regeneterian might just save you and the world.

It’s a real treat to watch the celery harvesters work so quickly and skillfully, moving through the thigh-high plants with a keen eye and a sharp knife, all to get the freshest, crunchiest, most delicious organic celery to your local store.
Strive to be YOUR best, instead of the best. Strive to be the best version of you as opposed to competing against anyone else. You can do this.
When you make your well-being a number one priority, the rest will fall into place 💚
