MEAT CONSUMPTION REDUCTION TO SLOW DOWN CLIMATE DISRUPTION
"Huge reductions in meat-eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change, according to the most comprehensive analysis yet of the food system's impact on the environment. In Western countries, beef consumption needs to fall by 90% and be replaced by five times more beans, legumes, fruits, and vegetables."

Based on the Friendship Bench in Zimbabwe (I encourage you to check it outfriendshipbenchzimbabwe.org ) we ask “how can we help our communities gain mental wellness/ emotional intelligence skills?” How can we unite our city and create a healthier environment? Our communities are bending and breaking under the weight of not being able to deal with the stress, trauma, difficulties of the 21st century. **How can we use the amazing skills, intuition, wisdom of our elders? How can we lift up those that have so much to give still...yet, are marginalized in our country?We build a “Wisdom Warrior” program! **How can we join together our young people and our Wisdom Warriors? How can we create a movement in our communities that elevates mental wellness skills and emotional intelligence skills to the point we use them as life skills... Life Skills That Last a Lifetime? We believe Team Stronger 2gether #vision2023 is the project that will help move us towards a healthier community.
“The Power of Preparation” is intended both for the present and the future. Never as I was planning the content did I know the future would become the present waaaay quicker. The more you resist gaining Emotional Intelligence (“because no one understands what I’m going through”, “I’ve already lost my job”, “my relationships suck”, “this stuff is for weak people”, etc) the more your situation will stay the same or get worse. Reading these short chapters, watching the videos and answering the questions, doing the fundamentals work, and doing the activities will make you exponentially stronger in all areas of your life. You will find the leadership skills you already possess. Your gain in confidence will result in problem solving skills.
Sooo...not only will these skills help you in all areas of your life...relationships, school, family, success, happiness, fulfillment, leadership, athletics, business, etc..., these skills will prepare you for the world that is here now and will be coming more swiftly every year from now on!
