We humans have been extremely good at inventing new products improving our life standard. Unfortunately some of these inventions can be harmful in the long run, not only for ourselves but also for the environment. Scientists have been working hard and listed almost 1000 chemicals that can impact our hormones. Below I list five of them I like to avoid:
less is more
I have great admiration for people who manage to live a truly natural live, who are fully aware of all those products and habits we created that are simply not good for our health in the long run and who manage to do without them. I am not there (yet) and I doubt if I ever will when I really think about it. I do however keep my eyes and ears open and make daily efforts to create healthy habits for myself and my family. In an era where we're surrounded by new stuff every day, I firmly believe that less is more. Less processed is better for you goes for food. Less hormone disturbing chemicals - or better, non at all - in everyday objects, cosmetics and foods is definitely the way to go and the path I am taking.
I enjoy comfort and replacing something with something else that is more sustainable but at the same time more effort and time consuming is very hard. Some changes are however much easier, like changing shampoo brands, opting for a more environment friendly cleaning product or detergent,...your skin and nature will thank you for it!
Even small changes can have big impact and you don't have to radically change all at once either.
Live fully and live plenty, live also aware!
