Clean your tap water. Chlorine and Fluoride added to sterilize tap water are bad for the hormonal system. Use a carbon filtration system sic as Aqausana’s or natural charcoal sticks. If possible, install a filter for your shower too.
Use healthy pots and pans.
Copper and Aluminium can leach into food.
Teflon pans contains bad chemicals.
Never microwave plastic, use glass instead.
Stainless steel glass bottles are better, especially in summer.
Don’t buy soap brands that contain:
-Check body lotion labels and don’t buy if it contains compound chemicals.
-Keep chlorine out of the house from cleaning products.
-Wash the air by keeping indoor plants (such as eucalyptus). Open windows when possible.
-Green your cleaners one by one.
-Natural toothpaste is not always natural.
-Switch from mineral body oil to coconut body/hair oil.
-Work standing up. Stand up desks are the wave of the future.
-Make a healthy bed. Unbleached cotton, organic mattress cover.
Use color for mood manipulation:
red is energizing
lavender encourages contemplation
blue brings calm
light green makes you hopeful
orange makes you happy
Clutter is the junk food of the home. Donate, organize, buy less.
Soothe your surroundings. Curves are soothing, fix or toss broken items
