A lot of us know that we might not exactly be living the cleanest of lives. We think that it takes an effort to make your home truly safe and clean. That we can only uphold our standards by using products we know aren’t clean. That even eating well is too much effort. But you don’t have to give up on the things you love or spend too much effort to live a cleaner, healthier and more environmentally friendly life. Here are three ways to change your thinking that can see you living a much more wholesome life in a matter of weeks.
Be you and be beautiful
Some might think it vanity, but staying beautiful is an important part of self-confidence and belief for many women. The standards for a girl are much higher than they are for men who seem to mostly be able to roll out of bed, spend five minutes in the bathroom and be ready. But you can maintain that beauty of yours without having to pollute yourself with products that contain all kinds of artificial ingredients that can do you long-term harm. The best natural beauty products on the market can be found here, ranging from skin and hair treatments to body washes and lip balm. Going natural is a lot better for your body and a lot less harmful to the environment to maintain as well.
Eating well without making it all you know
Processed food is so easy that it’s more than possible for us to grow up and leave the home without any real knowledge of how to find and make healthy food. To the initiate, it seems like a huge effort to prepare meals you might otherwise be able to buy. But using whole foods is always the more nutritious and often the less calorie-packing choice. Nowadays, there are a lot of kitchen gadgets that make it easier to prepare meals without having to be a master chef. Sites like Sustainable Table also make it easier to find produce from farmers and food companies that take into account their impact on the environment.
Care for your home and yourself at the same time
No-one is going to try to tell you that you should let your home get dirty just because common household cleaners can be very unhealthy. But it’s worth knowing that it’s true that household cleaners can cause serious damage. Those cleaning chemicals linger in the air and we breathe them in. This can increase our vulnerability to allergies and cause real respiratory conditions. We don’t need all those chemicals to clean a house, however. There are a lot of DIY natural home cleaning alternatives that are a lot simpler and a lot better for our health, including baking soda for ovens and citrus and vinegar for floors and windows and all other kinds of surfaces.
We deserve to eat what we like, to look gorgeous and to enjoy where we live. But there are ways to do that while still living a much better life. Hopefully, the tips above prove that point.
