Other Healthy Lifestyle Changes

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Besides eating healthy and working out I have made and am planning to make some other changes in my life to be healthier for myself now and for when I get pregnant.

I'm already taking pre-natal vitamins - my first time taking vitamins since I used to beg my mom for the Flintstones ones.

I spent a good part of today researching how to make my own natural cleaners as to reduce the amount of chemicals and toxins that I use in my home. I'm even planning on making my own laundry detergent. Should help our budget as well!

I already switched my beauty products to natural products - lots of Burt's Bees & I love Moroccan argan oil.

I have also made some changes to reduce my carbon footprint. I use cloth napkins, all my lunches are as close to zero waste as possible and, when the weather is better, we are going to start composting as much waste as possible.

I'm interested to find out what changes others are making, besides food and fitness, to better their lives?

    I think we are going to do clothe diapers too or at least use them most of the time.

    Good for you! Environment-wise, I don't know if I've made any terribly good changes recently but I think I've been making lots of changes in other areas (mental health and physical health) so I'm pretty happy with that.

    I do plan to use clothe diapers for baby when it comes. The disposables produce an incredible amount of waste and I feel like clothe would be more comfortable anyways rather than a weird plasticy substance on the skin!
