Monday Mornings

Happy Monday, friends!! I hope everyone’s week is off to a wonderful start!

So, I did mention, last Monday, I would be sharing some exciting stuff this week, so here we are! While sitting down a few weeks ago, going over what kinds of goals our family would aim for this year, of course, health is always at the top of any ones list, but when talking about health are we talking about, fitness related, dietary related, sleep…( because we know thats on my list) or maybe just focusing on what little things we can change, through out our daily life, that would have a huge impact, like removing chemicals from our homes! Sounds difficult, yep! Sounds like a lot of work, yep! Sounds expensive, yep! I sound like a quack right?  I know, I know, but hear me out! I mean, chemicals are in everything.. cleaning supplies, shampoos, lotions, baby wipes, our food, shampoo, laundry detergent and dryer sheets, basically everything. And the crazy part is, this stuff is being put on our bodies, are in our clothes, that our bodies wear for HOURS, on our beds.. yeah, I could keep going, but you might be freaking out at this point. Now, I realize, this is something that may take weeks, maybe months, possibly years, but YOU GUYS…. we are worth it, our children deserve it!

Let me explain to you how I got here…

So, I have a ton of friends, who use essential oils, or products with the oils in them, to replace the chemicals in their homes, along with other benefits. I was always like, “Seriously, who has the time for all that!? Make my own this and that… no thanks!” Finding the time in the day, to fold laundry and give the kids a bath is hard enough!  So, it basically came down to me cleaning the tub one day, and the cleaner I was using was burning my eyes ( I think it was like comet scrub bubbles or something) and I had a thought–about how I was washing the place my children come to get clean, with these awful chemicals, that are burning my eyes! I’ve always used BabyGanics hygiene products on my kids, yet I’m washing the tub with this potent, toxic, garbage that is probably making it’s way into their little bodies every time they step foot in this polluted place!! (if you think I’m a nut, go to ewg.org, and read up on your cleaners or detergents!) So then, I thought back to that friend, who had already made this awesome decision for her family, and who had sent me samples even! I reached out to her, and she introduced me to Young Living, their products, and everything they have to offer, and David and I were amazed. You guys, we aren’t just talking essential oils, but I’m talking all natural, plant based, house hold cleaners, shampoo, vitamins, laundry soaps, and a whole line for kids, and that doesn’t even touch it. Life changing! I mean really, its going to be life changing!

So, what I’m trying to get at is, there are all sorts of  ways to improve our lifestyles, our children’s lives, and even if you are taking one tiny step at a time, thats huge, you are heading in the right direction! We can’t get their over night, but we can get there. Our lives are so far from perfect, there are so many improvements we could make to become healthier, but as long as we continue to realize that, and move forward, making one improvement at a time, that’s something to celebrate and be proud of!

So, I’m going to continue sharing with you all, about all the amazing products we try,  how we are applying them to our lives, and just our journey into living a healthier life, in hopes that it helps one family! If you want more info about what we’re doing, message me or comment below. I would be happy to give suggestions, advice, or samples, if you’re interested in making this change with me!
