Studies have shown that people who spend more time around water have greater happiness, better health, and less mental melancholy. The power of the blue sky and freshwater is the ultimate healer.

How to protect the environment

On World Earth Day, amidst the bustling chaos of modern life, there's a gentle call to return to our roots, to reconnect with the natural world that sustains us. It's a journey not just for the soul but also for the future of our planet. As we revel in the beauty of nature, it's imperative to remember that our actions today shape the environment for generations to come. This Earth Day, let us not only revel in nature's splendour but also commit to protecting it.

In our pursuit of reconnecting with nature, we often find ourselves at a crossroads where enjoyment meets responsibility. However, these paths need not be divergent. Liza Quddos, Director of Corporate Communications at Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts, shares invaluable insights on how we can seamlessly integrate sustainability into our lifestyles while indulging in the beauty of our planet.

“Try switching to a whole food plant-based lifestyle beginning with at least one day a week," advises Quddos. Quddos emphasizes the power of dietary choices in fostering environmental stewardship. By embracing a whole food plant-based lifestyle, even if it's just one day a week, individuals can significantly reduce their ecological footprint. At Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts, this commitment to sustainability is exemplified through the introduction of plant-based menus across their properties. These menus not only tantalize the taste buds but also celebrate the richness of locally sourced produce, minimizing food waste and supporting local economies.

Furthermore, the transition from happy hour to Healthy Hour embodies a holistic approach to wellness and sustainability. By offering guests a selection of rejuvenating smoothies and juices, Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts not only caters to diverse preferences but also promotes the consumption of locally sourced ingredients. This shift not only enhances guest experiences but also aligns with the evolving preferences of mindful travellers, including the rising trend of sober-curious individuals."Healthy Hour concoctions will feature an array of smoothies and juices to both quench thirst and replenish the soul, made up of nourishing ingredients such as chia seeds ginger, Matcha powder and turmeric," adds Quddos.

Lastly, she emphasises travelling with a purpose. As we celebrate World Earth Day and embark on our journey of reconnecting with nature, let us heed Quddos' wisdom and embrace sustainable practices in every aspect of our lives. Whether through conscious dietary choices, mindful consumption, or responsible travel, each of us has the power to protect the environment and preserve the beauty of our planet for future generations. In this collective endeavour lies the promise of a greener, more sustainable tomorrow.
