Somehow life seems a little less pure when you describe things for what they really are. In recent months I have been reading a lot about the dangers of everyday chemicals and toxins in our lives. Now I look at everything in a whole new light. We need to be more aware of our surroundings and less worried about what people will think of us.
I am challenging everyone who reads this to look around them and see things for what they really are. Read labels, do research and think about products before you buy them. I am by no means suggesting that we all live in huts and sing kumbaya but, I know there are simple lifestyle changes that could change your health for the better.
As part of this challenge I encourage you to make just one new lifestyle change a month. It is so easy to control your surroundings when you take just one simple step at a time. I am here to compare stories, help and inspire you along the way. I am constantly looking for new ways to live a natural life and to raise my children without harmful toxins. I encourage you to share your ideas so we can all live a more natural life.
NATURAL OPTION TIP:
Here is a natural option that you can start today. Most homes have baking soda in them so this should be an easy first step. If you do not have baking soda make sure to pick some up during your next shopping trip (it will be worth it). Baking soda is a great substitute for many harmful and expensive cleaners. Use baking soda to clear clogged drains, heal minor cuts and scrapes, use undissolved as a soft scrub, clean fruits and vegetables, and much more. Go to the Arm & Hammer website for more uses in your home http://www.armhammer.com/myhome/.
Good luck, I can't wait to hear your stories!
