There are a plethora of hot topic environmental issues at the forefront in the media currently. I will not be going into all of those here. What I want to focus on are just 3 very simple lifestyle choices we can make that will directly improve our health, and make an impact on the health of our planet. We often think that our daily choices are insignificant. But they are not. Even our seemingly small daily choices add up over time and have real effects on our bodies and our planet.
As a 10-Day Spring Reset, I’ve put together a list of 6 simple practices for you to incorporate into your daily routine, to help to give your body and mind the post-winter tune up it needs. Commit to these practices for a full 10 days and see how good you will feel. You may even continue a few of them going forward!
Sometimes our days get so packed with “to'-do’s” that self-care and health habits can be pushed to the wayside. However, if we choose to start our day with a 30 minute health supporting routine, we can at least be happy we did that, as a bare minimum, on the days that other things (exercise, eating ALL the veggies, getting out in nature, etc) get neglected. So, instead of spending 30 minutes pressing the snooze button, use that time to get a head start on supporting your health for the day.
How is your sleep? Are you sleeping enough? Are you sleeping well? Do you have a hard time falling or staying asleep? Do you wake refreshed? If not, maybe this month you try to improve your zzz’s with some of the tips included in this month’s health challenge. After, all sleep is one of the foundations of health. It’s not something any of us can do without!
The average adult uses about 9 personal care products a day, and many of them contain toxic chemicals. Our skin is not an impermeable barrier. Many of the chemicals we put on our skin are absorbed into our bodies and can have a whole host of health effects. This month I challenge you to detox your cosmetics. Our monthly challenges are about making small, manageable changes to support our health and wellbeing. Choosing safer, non-toxic cosmetics can have huge impacts in your long term health.
