I am a stay at home mom to two little ones. Of course as a stay at home mom my job is to run the family and household but I think my most important job is to keep my family healthy and safe. Through the years I have found that many of the convention food, cleaning products, toys, household items, and beauty products we had were filled with toxic chemicals and untested ingredients. Our lives changed the moment I discovered I could do so much more to improve my health and protect the health of the beautiful little babies I had. No one else could make such a difference in their lives and as their mother it is my responsibility to do everything I can to raise them in a healthy environment.
Changing to a more natural, healthy, clean life did not happen overnight. It has been slightly over 5 years since we began our journey to purely natural living and everyday I am learning more and more. I read a lot and research everything in order to find the simplest and greenest solution to all of our problems. For me the best thing to do is to make a couple small changes at a time until they feel natural and then moving on to something else. Doing too much at once can make me feel overwhelmed and I eventually give up.
I post what I have discovered in my research, what I beleive to be true, and what works best for my family. Everyone is different and every family is different what works for one may not work for others. My biggest tip for anyone is to read, research, learn how others do things and then develop your own system or way of life that works for you.
I love to hear what others think and how they work through their problems to find the right solution for them. You can learn a lot about yourself and others by listening to someone else and their reasoning behind the things they do. In our society we learn how to quickly justify everything to suit our own needs but it is the times when we step back and really look at something from all angles that we find out who we truly are. So please comment I would love to hear about your experiences, your questions, and your thoughts!
