Today is the International Day Of Happiness. And yes it is on a Monday! At Vevolution we are big believers in starting the week as you mean to go on.
In life both of us have learnt that happiness isn't something that always comes easily. As vegans you accept that on top of the humanitarian suffering in the world over 140 billion animals are being killed for food or clothing a year.
Maintaining a fit body and mind is essential to being a fulfilled person. We all have problems in our respective lives, recognising that you don't have to suffer alone is important and so is having a support network of friends and family to share with.
We're also big believers in being grateful for the good things in our lives and staying routed in the now. Social media makes it easy to play the comparison game with people and wish for something different.
You are unique... You are powerful. Take today to remind yourself of that and celebrate the choice you have to be happy.
To celebrate we want to share with you some of things that are making us happy at the moment:
Today 20th March is officially the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. We can look forward to trees blossoming, baby ducklings being born and the return of warm weather.
Carnage is a new film available on BBC iPlayer written by Simon Amstell. He has managed to get across the serious imperative for the world to go vegan in a fun and accessible way. It's free to watch if you're in the UK on BBC iPlayer.
Last year we decided to start playing tennis. We both enjoyed playing with friends and teenagers but we hadn't played in 10 years. We have found it a great way to exercise out in nature and rediscovered our passion for this activity.
Living Naturally Products
Living Naturally is the 1st Soapnut Apothecary in the world! Their Man Balm is brilliant. It is 100% vegan, natural with hemp and cocoa butter and great for treating dry skin and moisturising Damien's beard. Judy is obsessed with their Coconut & Chai Spice Bathtub Tea which smells so good you want to eat it!
The Vibrant London Vegan Scene
Last weekend we were at the Fat Gay Vegan market at Hackney Downs Studios. We then checked out the Friendship Vegan Shoes designer market where our new Generation V t-shirts will be on sale for the next month.
This week we're off to Proofs Place dessert pop-up at The Trampery and we will pop into Mooshie's for some delicious vegan burgers. It's never been a better time to be vegan and that definitely makes us happy.
