What if I told you that you could reduce your diabetes risk by 50% in 60 minutes?
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Well, it’s not.
In fact, it’s one of the surprising truths about Earth Hour 2023, the global event that gives us the opportunity to improve the environment in just one hour.
Earth Hour is observed annually on the last Saturday of March, i.e. on March 25 this year. It is a symbolic “lights off” movement to show our collective support for the planet. But this year, we go beyond the hour. We bring new light to our vision for the earth. We do something positive for the environment and our health.
In this ultimate guide, I will show you how you can join one of the world’s largest movements for nature and save your life and the planet in just one hour.
Let’s dive in.
*What is Earth Hour and why does it matter?*
Earth Hour started in 2007 as a simple idea: switch off the lights for one hour to raise awareness about climate change. Since then, it has grown into a global phenomenon that involves millions of people from 178 countries and territories.
But Earth Hour is more than just a symbolic gesture. It is a catalyst for change.
It is a reminder that we are the first generation to have the solutions we need to reverse nature loss and limit climate change and the last one who can act before it’s too late.
Earth Hour is also a celebration of our connection with nature and each other.
It is a time to reconnect with our planet, restore our environment, learn more about our impact, inspire others to take care and find other ways to make a difference.
By participating in Earth Hour, we are not only showing our solidarity with the earth, but also with ourselves. We are taking time out for nature and our wellbeing.
How does Earth Hour help reduce diabetes risk?
You might be wondering: what does Earth Hour have to do with diabetes?
Well, a lot actually.
Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects over 463 million people worldwide. It is caused by high blood sugar levels that damage various organs and systems in the body.
One of the main risk factors for developing diabetes is physical inactivity.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), physical inactivity is responsible for 7% of type 2 diabetes cases globally.
That means that by being more active, we can lower our chances of getting diabetes.
But how can we be more active during Earth Hour?
Simple: by doing something positive for the planet that also benefits our health.
For example, we can:
Pick up litter thrown around and replace plastic bags with cotton bags.
Plant trees or flowers in our gardens or balconies.
Go for a walk or bike ride in nature.
Do some yoga or meditation outdoors.
Play games or dance with our family or friends.
These activities not only help us burn calories and improve our blood circulation, but also boost our mood and reduce stress. They also make us more aware of our surroundings and appreciate the beauty and diversity of life on earth.
By doing something positive for the planet and ourselves during Earth Hour, we can reduce our diabetes risk by 50% in 60 minutes. That’s a win-win situation!
