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!

    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.

Workforce: DIY Exercise Routine

Greenista Girl Shivani

How about a little manual labor before you go into labor? Don’t worry, we’re just talking about an easy, light workout routine. First and foremost, preggo ladies should not raise their heart rate above 140, so we suggest you get a heart rate monitor.  Try a combination of yoga moves to keep yourself stretched out and light cardio like walking 30 minutes a day – take it outside to boost your mood. Don’t push yourself too hard, take breaks if you need to and stay super hydrated – even if that means potty breaks every 10 minutes. By working out throughout your pregnancy, you’ll bounce back into shape faster post-baby, have an easier time with labor, and reduce your need for pain meds. Now get back to working it.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Epidurals are deemed safe for mom and baby by the FDA, however there are increased risks that may develop. Working out, practicing breathing, and being mentally prepared will lower your need for medications during labor. Going au natural is better for you and baby.

The Exercist: Green Workouts


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.
