I don’t know about you but this year, I needed to be done with coffee. Both Kyle and I have already high histamine levels so when adding in coffee each day, especially before eating, it was really sending us both into much higher anxiety and stress levels which we both promised to leave behind in 2021! So, in hopes of really keeping things as peaceful and calm as possible, we both decided, all caffeine had to go.
Ah, the holidays. The best time of the year where we all get together and celebrate what matters the most, family! With that being said, I think for many of us living a more non-toxic life, these times can also be worrisome as other family members may not be as inclined to create the safe environment as we’d prefer! So, I thought what better way to encourage your entire family to have a safe holiday season than to compose a list of my top tips + tricks for creating the happiest of less-toxic holidays!
Let’s face it, most of us spend the majority of our time staring into our computers, tablets, or cellphones but have you ever considered the damage that is doing to your eyes!? As someone who was constantly getting headaches, not sleeping well, and experiencing burning eyes, I started to wonder if staring at screens all day could be harming my eyes. Well, it turns out, it can be and for me, was! Since implementing a few changes, I have noticed a huge improvement so I am here to share in hopes that it can help someone else, too!
In the 6+ or so years I have spent reviewing products, you will notice I have never once promoted a CBD product for humans because honestly, none impressed me, I never noticed anything worth reporting on, until I met this brand, NuLeaf NATURALS! However, you will quickly see that this product is NOT just CBD, it is something that was also new to me as well- meet CBG Oil. Keep reading, especially if you want a Nuleaf Naturals coupon code!
For me, one of the hardest parts of starting a new healthy habit is, well… just that- starting. Sometimes it can be so overwhelming and you can feel that small changes don’t matter so why do them? Well, I am here to remind you that small changes DO matter and DO make a difference as every toxic item we can remove from our life is a win, right!? When it comes to clean beauty though, it’s hard to know which items will work for the majority of my customers.
As you know by now, I am a huge fan of the Daily Harvest, a plant-based food delivery company! Recently, they have added so many new items, I had to do an updated blog post on my faves as you guys ask me all of the time which are best to start with! If you are new to Daily Harvest, their concept is simple! They deliver healthy food options using only plant-based and 95% Organic ingredients making it super easy to get more fruits and veggies into your life each day! For me, someone who is insanely busy but tries to eat healthily but who also avoids dairy and gluten, their meals have been so time-saving and amazing to have ready to go! They also have included an awesome discount code: BUNNY40 to get $40 off your first box, so keep reading if this sounds like something your family or you could enjoy.
For me, a huge portion of my time goes directly into protecting my health because I truly believe without it, we have nothing. Some people avoid living a similar lifestyle because it seems like such work but for me, it’s such a passion of mine that it never feels that way to me. I love learning about new information or finding new technology that has something real to offer and these Somavedic devices are exactly that! If you have been looking for that one *thing* that truly does a little bit of it all then this may be exactly what you are looking for!
Candles are something that most people think to themselves eh, they can’t be 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 bad, can they? Well, did you know that most candles are made from Paraffin Wax which, when burned, can turn into Toluene & Benzene, both of which are known Carcinogens? In addition to the above, you then want to consider the wicks in most candles and the fact that they are usually made from heavy metals which then dispurses heavy metals into the air we breathe.
For the last year, I have been obsessed with setting my home up like a retreat because well, getting to a spa or retreat right now is not all that possible! So, the next best thing is to create your very own sanctuary, a clean and quiet place you can escape to and take a few moments to unwind and relax. In this space, you can meditate, journal, read, give yourself Gua Sha, or just soak in a warm bath to let the stress of the day melt away. Whatever it is you choose to do, here are my favorite tips and tricks to set the perfect vibe for your cozy new space!
