I know I feel like a whole new person after a four-hour hike or a long walk on a quiet beach.
Change Your Food Habits
Try to buy those foods that walk, grew, or swam – instead of being created in a factory. The more whole foods we nourish our bodies with, the better we feel.
Eating organic, whole foods is the best way to go. Use organic spices too
Avoid pesticides, chemicals, dyes, and fake fats.
Just eat and prepare simple old-fashioned real wholesome goodness. Locally grown organic food is best. Hit up the farms and farmstands as much as you can.
Minimize the Artificial
This means everything from lighting (use more energy-efficient alternatives or keep windows open) to decorations to the candles you burn.
Try to bring as much of the outdoors IN as you can.
Decorate with real flowers, plants, shells, wood, rocks, driftwood, etc.
Paint with a natural palette of colors – earth tones and jewel tones look beautiful together and are soothing to the eye.
Cut back on the plastics, the electronics, air-conditioning and excess lights.
Keep windows open as much as possible for fresh air.
Try journaling your feelings as a daily or weekly habit
Do the things that bring you peace, happiness and contentment. The things that stir your fire inside and make you glow!
The happier we are inside, the more joy and love we radiate to others and the more aware we are of the earth around us.
The more natural lifestyle we seek to live is within reach by making small daily changes.
