It’s day 23 of your New Year’s resolution. How are you holding up so far? So many of us make the same resolutions year after year – maybe you’ll strive to quit drinking so much, hit the gym and lose some weight, be more organized at home or pay off some of that old debt you've been holding onto. Instead of making the same resolutions as the years past, let’s start a new trend this year where we throw away the broken resolutions of years past and make a commitment to ourselves and family members, rather than a resolution. It’s the simple promise to “be healthier” this year, in all aspects of life.
Where do you begin and what does it mean to be truly healthy? It means making a commitment to improve, refresh, rejuvenate and start anew. Being healthy is about nourishing our bodies with the proper diet, making our minds free of worry and confusion, building a stronger physical body, keeping a clean, organic and safe home and making our family our number one priority.
One of the more difficult promises to keep is a healthy body and mind, as we all know first-hand how life can get in the way of heading to the gym after work every day, or staying away from the fast food restaurants after your child’s soccer practice. You’ll need to stay strong and work with your family to come up with healthy food alternatives and it’s always good to have a workout buddy who will help you keep to your fitness routine. A healthy mind can be achieved by increasing communication with your family and friends, as well as finding your inner peace doing what makes you happy, be it hiking up a mountain, having coffee with a friend or co-worker after work or going for a long country drive in your car on Sunday afternoon.
One of the most important promises to being healthy involves creating a safer home for your spouse, children and pets. You may be thinking that you already have your corners blocked off from walking toddlers, your electrical sockets blocked from little fingers and you already have an alarm system. But what about the chemicals you use in your home on a daily basis? What kind of effect will that have on your children or pets? It is so important to provide a safe environment for your family at home, as well as educate your children on how they can minimize their impact on other people, pets and our world. Using GreenShield Organic products you can minimize your impact on the environment and keep a safe home for everyone, whether it is by choosing organic laundry detergent which is free of sulfates and harsh chemicals, surface wipes to clean up after cooking meals or organic bathroom cleaners while scrubbing your bathroom and everyday household items. You’ll feel good about using the only line of laundry detergents and hard surface cleaners in the world that are USDA Certified Organic, and your family and pet’s safety and health will be the result.
