I don’t think anyone would say “Healthy lifestyle? Nope, not for me!” 🙂 I believe everyone wants (and needs!) a healthy lifestyle, but most don’t think they have the time nor the energy to invest in making it happen.
I totally understand this as I, myself, have days of running around like a chicken with its head cut off (such a terrible analogy… especially for a vegetarian haha) and can’t imagine adding an extra task to my day, even if it is to simply fill my diffuser.
So, believe me, I fully understand just how busy everyone’s life is. And, as I was saying in my Day 82 video, this is not always a bad thing. I love to be busy all the time. I love to accomplish long lists of to-dos and always have something on the back-burner, but accomplishing a healthy lifestyle does not mean adding to your list of to-dos, it simply means to do things differently.
Let’s take a normal weekday morning. Most of us will wake up, wash, go down to eat breakfast, clean the dishes and table, brush their teeth and be off to work. What would a healthy lifestyle mean for these people? Well, it would be to use a natural face wash and soap (if using soap at all*), then possibly adding a drop of cinnamon in your morning coffee or adding a drop of lemon to your glass of water, using a natural spray for the table or counter, brushing your teeth with a natural toothpaste and possibly infusing it with orange oil for a whitening effect.
Same goes for supplements. I used to take evening primrose oil for my hot flashes, vitamin D because there just isn’t enough sun year-round in Ottawa and glucosamine for my joints. Now I chomp down on a vitamin D & C as I wake up and swallow Sulfurzyme & Omegagize as I eat breakfast. My routine is essentially the same, but I feel a thousand times better.
I wish I would have more time right this instant so I could go on as to what it means in terms of new products to add to your routine as replacement of others, but that will to go in a separate post since off I am again to cross out another to-do item on my list. 🙂
I wish you all a gorgeous sunny day like it is currently in Ottawa and hope you will take the first step in changing your lifestyle to a more healthy you. Cheers!
