Get Up and Go with Greenista Guest Latham

Visiting Author

We are all concerned with living well at the least expense to the environment, but how do we make sure we are not only eco-conscious but healthy-lifestyle conscious as well? I’m Latham Thomas and I’m the founder of Tender Shoots Wellness, a boutique holistic lifestyle practice that serves women offering green culinary services, nutritional counseling, and yoga. I’m a single mother of a 7-year-old-boy and we live in the heart of the Green Apple, New York City. I’m a new addition to the Greenista team and I’m going to share some savvy tips on how to live your very best!

Holistic living means to live in balance with all components of our life … relationships, career, diet, fitness, passions, and the ambient environment. Here is one way to live an eco existence:

Exercise during the mornings whenever possible. When you work out at the start of your day it decreases your appetite and stimulates the thyroid to burn calories all day long. Try power walking, jogging, swimming, or spinning in the mornings to start off your day, add some resistance training at the end of the workout to further stimulate the fat burning process. This might include push-ups, pull-ups, crunches, and squats. Since it’s warmer outside, our bodies naturally desire more sunlight and activity. Carve out some time in your busy schedule to do some of the things you love to do outdoors, which might include: rollerblading, bike-riding, recreational sports, dancing, walking more, etc. It saves on gym membership, averts emissions expelled by workout machines, and is green!

  18. BMX Bikes For Sale says:

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  19. bmx bunny hop says:

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

Pedal Power: Eco Gyms

Brianne

Gym rat? Did you know that all that equipment you’re sweating on releases loads of CO2 emissions? What if you could get your exercise groove on and help reduce your carbon footprint, too? Pretty soon, your local gym could be your biggest green asset. All over the nation, health clubs have opted to become a darker shade on the green spectrum. Clubs such as Equinox and Club One have floors made of recycled tires and use biodegradable cleaning products. Also, newly built Go Green Fitness offers perhaps the most unique way to contribute – their 25 stationary bicycles connect directly to a power grid to energize the place. So you better work it, girl!

The Exercist: Green Workouts

Brianne

Working out inside make your head want to spin? Don’t call an exorcist, just become an exercist… er, exerciser. A recent UK study showed that just 5 minutes of exercise in a green space like a park can increase your mood and self-esteem. The analysis looked at biking, hiking, gardening, fishing, boating, horse-riding, and farming in parks, gardens, and nature trails and showed the most improvements were seen among young people, the depressed, and the mentally ill. Don’t stop at green spaces though, blue ones like oceans, lakes, and rivers count too. Plus by working out in nature, you’re not using energy produced by gyms and equipment. Now get outside and work it like a woman possessed.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: The average treadmill uses around 3000 watts — the equivalent of 30 light bulbs — and pumps out about 4 pounds of CO2 per hour.
