Take care of yourself and your environment. You owe it to yourself to tend to your mental, emotional, and physical needs, as well as ensure your surroundings, such as the products you use in your home and on your body, supports your health.
You are your most important asset. It is imperative to rejuvenate regularly so you don’t deplete your ability to be good to yourself and to be good community members for your family, friends, and neighbors. When thinking about how to decrease unhealthy burdens in your life, it is important to note that cleanliness full of toxic chemicals is not actually clean. Our modern obsession with hand sanitizer, harsh cleansers, and anti-aging plastic microbeads adds synthetic “clean” chemicals into our lives in place of natural “dirty” ones. The products we use on our bodies and in our homes affects our overall health and the health of the environment.
Take time for yourself each day to do something you love, just because you love it!
Ditch the expensive store-bought home cleansers and DIY.
Choose furniture and home decor that utilizes natural, recycled, or recyclable materials.
Re-purpose and re-use.
