The Banyan Tribe Wellness Philosophy
Our core philosophy is that wellness means committing to a LIFESTYLE that makes you feel good and be well! Wellness is for a lifetime.
We believe that there are really no short cuts or quick fixes to wellness, rather it’s about developing sustainable, life long habits that help us to be well and feel great!
We have 5 core principles at Banyan Tribe:
1. Food as our medicine.
We believe in eating yummy food, but we also believe that what we eat can help to heal us and keep us from getting sick in the first place. So yummy food and healing food can be the same thing!
2. What you eat and what you do for exercise have to be enjoyable.
Let’s face it, if you don’t enjoy it you’re not going to want to do it very often. So if you like to walk - walk! If you like yoga - do yoga! It's only likely to be a lasting habit if you actually like to do it!
3. It’s what you do most of the time that matters.
Sure you’re going to eat that extra slice of pizza or that piece of cake once in a while and that’s ok. It’s really what you do most of the time that matters. So if most of the time (80% of the time) you eat a healthy balanced diet, we think you'll be fine!
4. A little effort can go a long way.
Small sustained changes can lead to big results. So for example, sometimes we just need to add a bit more movement or exercise into our day, or eat more fruits and veggies, to improve our health.
5. We can all be fabulous at any age!
We'll be elaborating more on these principles but let us know what you think!
