Leading a productive, busy life can take its toll, no matter how strong we think we are. We deal with so many responsibilities, that sometimes, whether we realize it or not, we can become quite neglectful of our own health and lifestyle. Eating food on the go like fast foods can cause some serious health issues that can significantly slow down our productivity and wellbeing in the long run. Now jumping into an organic lifestyle doesn’t have to be difficult. There are many ways we can live healthy and happy lives with just a bit of effort on our part, and still be the best #Girlbosses we are. Here are 4 key tips to get you on the right track to living a healthy and organic lifestyle.
Take Baby Steps
When it comes to changing your life, it is always better to go with small steps. Too often do we get the initial adrenaline to want to start a new diet fad or rock the minimalist lifestyle, but when we come crashing down a few days in, we end up losing the momentum. See, there are many ways you can incorporate organic living into your daily routine and have it become a habit. While what we consume is definitely one of the areas to focus on when we are going healthy, there are other factors like fitness, mental health, and environmental factors to consider as well. You may want to get on that treadmill and start burning 10 pounds immediately, but it’s important to work up conditioning, so you don’t get hurt or not be in it for the long haul. All about the baby steps.
Put Your Research Hat On
When you go the organic, all natural route, you will find yourself being more and more creative. Take for example, the task of switching your cleaning solution to a homemade one that doesn’t contain any chemicals, which would be potentially dangerous to you and your family. Trust Google to find you a solution by giving you the perfect recipe for making an all-natural cleaning spray. We just love the Internet because it really is a fountain of knowledge. Also, we recommend scoping out your local bookstore for some amazing books and guides to help you on your health journey.
You probably want to roll your eyes on this tip, but trust us. Keep on reading. Starting up gardening can have a substantial amount of benefits on the quality of your life. First is the emotional connection a garden can have on your psyche. Think about it. You bought the seeds and flower pots, brought them home and planted them in the ground, made sure to water and nourish them, and saw them bare fruit. Talk about a sense of accomplishment. But let’s say you don’t have the time or resources to start your own, full-fledged vegetable or fruit garden, start small. Try growing your own herbs in a simple plant pot and keep it near the kitchen window.

With so many new gadgets and tools on the market, leading a healthy and organic lifestyle is definitely doable. See, you’re not just creating efficiency, but also setting up the right atmosphere that will have you feeling positive and motivated to continue on this great path. So we definitely recommend investing in some effective, energy-saving kitchen appliances. One of our favorite kitchen investments we ever made was purchasing a good quality blender. There are so many things you can do with a blender from quick and easy smoothies to fresh pesto sauce and brown rice pancakes.
Another great kitchen appliance is a top quality refrigerator that can store your food a lot better and keep it fresh for longer. This is important because as you begin to opt for more organic and healthier options, you’re going to need your food to stay as fresh as possible. Keeping the refrigerator nice and organized is vital too, because most of us tend to be visual people. So seeing what we have in our refrigerator will lessen the stress levels and also encourage us to cook more.
