4 Reasons Why the Vegan Community is Awesome

  • Apr 22, 2016

Veganism is all about abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in the food you eat and your daily products. However, in its goal of rejecting the status of animals as “commodity”, it strives to make this world a more open, accepting place. Is it so hard to believe the vegan community is the same?

There are many reasons to love the vegan community, and here are just a few:

Instant kinship – When you meet another vegan, you immediately form a bond over your shared idealism and principles. You will find that many people in the vegan community have a lot in common with you, and that like-mindedness makes it easy to form friendships and bonds that go beyond blood ties or geographic location. No matter where in the world you go, you will find instant kinship with fellow vegans trying to make the world a better place.

Support – Going vegan isn’t always easy, but there is a whole community of people who are willing to help you make the changes to have a healthy lifestyle. Vegans are very welcoming and accepting to anyone who is trying to change, and it’s a compassionate community filled with new friends who can help you through any challenges or struggles.

Happiness – You’ll find that most vegans aren’t just happy, but they’re actively content! They know that they’re making the right choice for the planet, and they’re doing what’s best for their bodies. Even if they are the “odd ones out” in society, they are content with their status because they’re doing the right thing. It’s a deep-seated feeling of happiness that is contagious, and it will spread from vegan friend to vegan friend.

Health-conscious peer pressure – It’s amazing how much your life will change when you have vegan friends around! You’ll start to think more about your health, and you’ll begin to take steps to correct issues with your diet, exercise habits, and lifestyle that negatively affect your health. Your vegan friends will provide that positive peer pressure that will make you a healthier person. You’ll live a longer, happier life thanks to all of the people around you that encourage and help you to be a healthier person.

There is so much to love about being a vegan beyond just the physical benefits and improved health! You’ll find that going vegan is one of the best things you can do for a better life, and it’s largely due to the friends you will make in the vegan community and the many ways they will improve your life.
