With the proliferation and exponential growth of organic products, plant-based menus and healthier beverages coupled with a strong increase in public curiosity of centuries-old religious dietary guidelines, give us the opportunity to return to the wonders of natural living.  As we’re all aware, nature is built on an unadulterated system in which all of its components are perfectly customized to work symbiotically and seamlessly including our amazing human bodies.  
For this trending reality, it is therefore reasonable to foresee this nascent industry of healthy products and services to continue to expand worldwide.  This new consciousness of the importance of healthy living has unquestionably ushered in a paradigm shift in the attention given to the importance of healthy lifestyle in the 21st century forward. Religious Foods Festival is added to the Healthy Lifestyle Month activities. 

It’s an irrefutable fact that the cost of unhealthy lifestyles on precious lives and resources is unsustainable, inequitable, and has resulted in a painfully sustained health disparities among haves and have nots.  As a result, October is designated Healthy Lifestyle Month to highlight these disparities and seek their remedy through education, inspiration and investment in health and wellness programs.  


The first Tuesday in October is Healthy Lifestyle Day to kick-start the Healthy Lifestyle Month. It is expected that the annual Healthy Lifestyle Month is observed throughout the state, especially in schools, entertainment venues, religious and political establishments. 

Against this backdrop, on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 (Healthy Lifestyle Day), Lifestyle Lifespan, Community Board 9, St. Helena’s Church, Plant Powered Metro NY,  Green Bronx Machine, Operation FISH, The Office of Brooklyn Borough President, Montefiore Hospital, BronxNet Television and their partners and sponsors shall be celebrating the 2nd anniversary of ‘Healthy Lifestyle Day’ and ‘New York Healthy Lifestyle’ campaign.
