Doesn’t it feel amazing when you realize that you don’t have to consume non-human animals to be healthy?
While I will not give you medical advice as I am not a doctor, I do want to share how to create a vegan lifestyle that you love and adore. I have been plant-based for the past 8 years, so I know what I am talking about.
I am eager to help you go vegan because the world is burning and non-human animals are dying at an alarming rate. We have to stop this asap and I need you to join me in this revolution.
Here are 10 tips for people who want to go vegan:
- Take it slow and go at your own pace. You know best what works for you and you must follow your heart.
- Surround yourself with people who will support you on this new journey. You don’t need vegan friends, just people who will love and uplift you.
- Create a self-care routine that will keep you sane. Meditate, exercise and take really good care of your body and mind.
- Follow vegans on social media for inspiration and motivation. You can find me on Instagram and Pinterest, and I share a ton of helpful tips and resources there.
- Find your reason why you are going vegan and hold on to it. Mine is that I don’t want to eat other animals… what is yours?
- Connect to like-minded people in the real world and make vegan friends. Attend events, volunteer or just DM someone on social media if they’d like to meet up for a coffee.
- Start with what is easy, like giving up a certain animal product you don’t eat that often anyway. As I said at the beginning, go at your own pace.
- Practice seeing non-human animals as individuals with their own complex personalities. Spend time with them and interact as much as possible. I find that most ex-vegans never actually meet a cow or a pig before.
- Remove people from your life who hold you back from making positive changes in your life.
- Have hobbies outside of your vegan lifestyle. Spend time doing things that you love that are not connected to veganism at all.
What do you think? Are you ready to finally go vegan and save some animals?
As I mentioned at the beginning, I have been vegan for eight years and I’ve learnt a lot. I have failed many times (you can read more about that here) but I also got up and continued with my journey.
It wasn’t always easy but if you know what your values are, you stay on the path. Many people don’t do that, but you don’t have to be like those people. You can be different. You can and you do deserve to live according to your deepest values.
