Is Healthy Living One Of Your New Year’s Resolutions?
The new year is a great time to reset and pursue everyday practices that promote healthy living. 2020 was a challenging year for so many reasons. The coronavirus forced us to socially distance from friends and family, which has impacted both our physical and mental health. When we talk about healthy living at Sunrise Farms, we’re not necessarily talking about going on a diet or training for a marathon. While those elements are helpful, what we’re really talking about is the pursuit of a holistic lifestyle where our beliefs, our way of living, and our eating habits are healthful and consistent. The Sunrise Difference touches on those key elements and can help you live a healthier life in 2021. Here’s how:
- Food: “You are what you eat,” or, “You are what what you eat eats.” Confused yet? What both of those quotations mean is that it matters what you put into your body and the quality of feed you give your animals. We believe in serving our family and animals all-natural, Non-GMO food. That means that the food we put on our plates is responsibly sourced and comes from animals fed high-quality feed and vegetables grown with minimal pesticides. Plus, enjoying home-cooked meals with your family is one of the best ways to connect with your spouse and kids. In fact, current statistics show that children who eat with their family for more than three meals a week are far more likely to be within a healthy weight range and less prone to disordered eating.
- Faith: Our faith plays an important role in our family, business and personal lives. We consider ourselves stewards of the earth, meaning we believe in protecting the land and all of God’s creations. This is the primary reason we believe in raising our animals in an ethical manner and respecting the unique beauty of life. Raising animals on our own locally-sourced Non-GMO feed protects their health and makes good use of our resources. Raising livestock with care demonstrates respect for life.
- Fitness: Being active and exercising can take so many different forms. While we may not be hitting the gym, we believe in getting outside and moving. Whether we’re working on the farm or taking a walk with our family, integrating regular movement into our lives improves both our physical and mental health. Regular exercise has been proven to reduce the risks of chronic disease, improve memory, and make you feel happier. Be sure to get outside on these winter days for sunshine and fresh air!
