Just Start

🌱 There’s no one way to start living life #alittlelesstoxic. There’s no right way to begin. I do realize that sometimes we still just want some guidance and instruction to help us get started. Here are my top 3 tips for getting started and continuing.

1. Begin to get informed. Determine why reducing toxins matters to you. Once you have a “why,” the changes will feel empowering and less burdensome. You don’t need to know everything right away, or ever, fully. Just start learning.

2. Read ingredients. On everything. Just start reading what’s in the things you eat and use. It may alarm you. It will enlighten you.

3. Start where you are with what you understand and what you have. It’s not sustainable for most people to do a compete overhaul overnight. Just start where you are right now and the next thing that runs out or wears out, replace with something less toxic. Then just keep doing that.

Take this journey one day at a time and don’t compare your starting line to someone else’s victory lap. Each person has individual circumstances and resources. Don’t get overwhelmed, just take it one step at a time and know for certain you are changing the trajectory of your life and your family’s life. And ours.

Do what you can with what you’re able and as it makes sense for you.
