You are not alone if you are looking for ways to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Our family has been searching for ways to live a healthier life for some time. One thing we have learned is, that making changes is not always easy. Whether you are trying to give up sugar, start exercising, or remove harmful chemicals from your home, it takes time and dedication.
We have found that baby steps make a difference. It did not work for us to jump in and try to change everything all at once. Then, if you fall off and mess up, it is hard to get started again. We have decided to take each day and try to make a change for the better. If we make it one day, then we try to make the next day a little better yet. There are days we mess up, and it is important to remember that we are human, and not to give up. Someday these changes will become habits, and we will not spend the effort thinking about everything we do.
We all want to be healthy, and encourage our children to be healthy too. Until one of our teenage family members had a health issue, we never realized some of the things we were doing to contribute to the problem. Let me tell you, our family could be classified as germaphobes. We always carried hand sanitizer, and often disinfected counters and desks with bleach wipes. We thought this was to protect us from all the nasty germs out there. Yes, our soap had to be antibacterial too. Upon doing research, we learned that all of this could be a huge contributor to the hormone issue our teen was faced with.
Thankfully, a short time later, we discovered Young Living Essential Oils. We began the journey by ordering a starter kit with a diffuser. This was not something we intended to share with others. We were searching for ways to improve the life of our teen. Our thought was to give it a try, and see if it made any difference. We started by just diffusing oils, and applying them topically. Amazingly, we started to see a difference in not only our teen, but other members of the household too. This is when we began to share about Young Living’s products. We feel something this wonderful is meant to be shared, so other people can benefit from the support of Young Living products.
With the help of Young Living, we are now in the process of transforming our home into a chemical free home. We were surprised to learn all the harmful ingredients that are found in both personal care products, and cleaning products.
