Welcome! I created this blog to share my steps towards becoming more health-conscious and environmentally-friendly. My goal is to find small changes that reduce effort, expenses, and clutter. I share tips, food, and products that create a more eco lifestyle without giving up any of the comforts of modern life. Simple is easy.
I’m always surprised at how freely people talk, given an ear to listen. From this, I often find myself offering advice to friends and family. Over the years, I’ve searched for answers, noted the best mantras, and tried them out in practice. It’s time to consolidate some of these findings and send them back out into the world to share.
I’ve always believed in the saying,
“If you can’t put it in you, then you shouldn’t put on you.”
But what does this actually mean? What does daily life look like for someone who truly believes this? I had always acknowledged this belief, but I never took the next steps to put it to action. I finally started listening to my body and gradually substituting or eliminating products.
Living in small urban places almost necessitated questioning everything I owned. I don’t think I’ll ever be a minimalist, but I’ve enjoyed reducing my footprint. My place seems bigger, it’s easier to clean, and my body is happier.
