Another Truth coming at you…
Here’s the deal. And know that this truth comes from such a place of love and compassion for you and your desire to take the best care of your family that you can.
Toxins surround us. There’s no escaping that. We spend so much time concerning ourselves about what’s out there, out of our control – car and factory exhaust, pollution in our water, etc, that we often forget to look at what’s right in front of us, in our homes, that we can control.
We spend 90% of our time inside, and 65% in our homes. Our windows are rarely open and our homes are better insulated. Is it really any surprise that our homes are more toxic than the outside world?
Here’s where a little bit of knowledge can go a long way. You can’t get the toxins out of your home if you don’t know what to look for, but once you do, it’s the easy first step towards a healthier lifestyle.
When it comes to food, our bodies all have different needs. That’s why no one way of eating is universally “right.” We can spend a long time figuring out what works best for our bodies, and each time we interact with food we have to deal with the struggle of what do I need/want/crave. Every time. I can help you with that too, but that’s another story.
The toxins in our homes are quite the opposite. We choose where we are ready to reduce toxins, and we take action. We take the toxic items out and replace them with healthier options. That’s it. It really is that simple.
With toxins, even though people have varying degrees of susceptibility to the dangers of certain chemicals, they are not good for any of us. They can lead to…
Resistant weight loss
Low birth weight
and so much more
Would you knowingly use products in your home that had the potential to cause these health problems for your and your family for generations to come? Of course not!
This is where a little bit of knowledge can take you a long way. You learn what you can do that is in your control, you get support and accountability around making the changes, and you let go of what’s out of your control.
You step into a place of confidence and empowerment as you are doing what you can, small or large, to do the best for your family.
When you’re ready to learn more, you dig into the next layer. And you grow. You look back one day and feel amazing at how much you’ve done for yourself and your family. “How did I get here?” you think to yourself. “It felt so easy.” And that’s because it is.
We have to get over this idea that we have to change 100% for it to be worthwhile because there is no truth to that, especially when it comes to toxins. Why? Because we’ll never get our chemical exposure down to zero. It’s just impossible in the world that we live in, so we have to let that idea go.
What we can do is take the first step to protect ourselves and our families from the thousands of chemicals in our world by learning about what to look out for, what to use instead, and how to slip into ease instead of overwhelm and love instead of fear.
