Why be vegetarian? Being vegetarian is healthier, kinder, more sustainable and offers a wide variety of tasty food. Vegetarians live longer and have reduced risk of lifestyle diseases, obesity and hypertension. Animal fat and meat has

been linked conclusively with an increase in heart disease, stroke, colon and breast cancer, and more. Another good motivation is to stop the exploitation of animals by intensive breeding and cruelty.

Managing summertime sadness We all feel sad or low at times. These are normal human emotions. If you experience a low mood or sadness, it can be reflected in three ways: Mentally You might be self-critical, have negative thoughts, feel hopeless, or feel helpless about yourself or the future. Other symptoms include having difficulty with mental clarity, focus and brain fog. Physically You could feel tired or exhausted, experience changes in sleeping patterns and appetite, have a reduced sexual interest, and walk or move more slowly. Behaviorally Examples may include becoming more irritable and angry, avoiding people and places, avoiding things you used to enjoy doing, and not getting the same pleasure from your usual activities.
