Little Things

Overwhelm can pause us. Delay us. Stop us in our tracks. Fear is a liar. You are able to make your life a little less toxic. Right now. With what you know. With what you have.

Little things can make a big difference.

Toothpaste. Water. Deodorant. Face cream. Shave cream. Shampoo. Conditioner. Soap. Body wash. Lotion. Foundation. Mascara. Blush. Lip balm. Dish soap. Coffee. Tea. Cream. Sweetener. Breakfast. Snack. Lunch. Dinner. Hand sanitizer. Air freshener. Detergent. Stain remover. Cleansers. Hand soap. Fabric softener. Air. … We are exposed to hundreds of opportunities each day. To continue to build toxic load or to reduce it.

If you think about all the things all at once it is frightening and overwhelming. THAT is more toxic than your aluminum containing deodorant. Fear and being consumed or paralyzed by worry are more toxic than all of the other things combined.

Little things can make a big difference.

Those little things all add up to a toxic load that can cause and exacerbate all sorts of health issues. From eczema to brain fog to inflammation to serious health crises.

Little things can make a big difference.

The next little thing you can do to reduce that toxic load makes a difference too. Almost out of deodorant? Find a better one to replace it with. Teflon coated pans? Once they’re due for a replacement or when you’re able, swap them for something safer. Face wash running low? Swap it for jojoba oil and use that as a moisturizer for your whole body and face too. Just keep at it.

Simplify. Take the next step. Replace each item as needed with something #alittlelesstoxic Make reasonable and sustainable choices for you and your circumstances. Those things, big and little, will continue to make a difference. The longer you keep at it, the greater the impact you make. For yourself. For your family. For the industry. For the future. For all of us. You’re making a big difference. One little thing at a time.
