For many people, the New Year is a joyous time to celebrate with friends and family. It is a time to reflect on positive changes that have brought happiness in your life and a time that gives you a celebratory reason to surround yourself with people you love most.

Bring it on, 2022!
This year is going to be it, right? The year you finally accomplish what you have been meaning to for the last few years. One can only hope–sure–but one can also start planning ahead. There’s no greater time to start working on your goals than right now. There’s no need to panic, though, this is where the fun begins. For those a little worried about the New Year and the list of things to do, we’re here to help. Here are a couple tried and true tips on how to start out the New Year in a way that works just for you. 

2021: The Year of Delayed Shipping + Backorders

2021: The Year of Delayed Shipping + Backorders
Who knew that 2020 would throw us for such an incredible curveball, and 2021 would be the year of delayed shipping and backorders?

Between lumber prices sky-rocketing to appliances, hot tubs, and other household commodities on hold for 6 months, plus, we’re experiencing quite a tumultuous time in the American economy.


Healthy You, Healthy Home

Healthy You, Healthy Home
Have you ever heard the expression: you can’t be fully healthy without a healthy home?
Probably not … since I just made it up right now.
But, I firmly believe it. You can’t achieve a true, healthy lifestyle without first looking inward at your daily routines, and your home.
What’s lurking under your kitchen sink, which products you clean your home with, and what you put in and on your body are all important.
And I’m sure you’re like me, a few years back, I had NO idea all of the junk, yuck, and nasty chemicals that were hiding in our kitchen cabinets.
Do you?
Don’t fret! I certainly don’t want to add yet another item to your ever-growing laundry list of things to do around the house.
But, as always, I’m here to serve. Let’s fast-forward and I’ll provide you my best tips of where to start looking for these pesky products in your own home.
The Scariest Areas of your Home
Check here first. These are a few of the scariest areas of your home where chemicals can so easily be disguised as something “healthy, green, safe, and non-toxic.”
Under the Kitchen Sink
YIKES! This can be an overwhelming area of your home in general, but to start thinking through the harmful chemicals that may be hiding—double scary. Simplify things with this one cleaner that is natural, safe, and effective. We use this ONE, yes ONE, cleaner to provide a masterful clean for our entire home. Could you say this is the answer to all of your problems? If you’re a mom—YES, I think that’s fair.
Laundry Room
This can be another super toxic area of your home. And who knew, the scents of detergent and fabric softeners are so pleasant. But, that’s just the issue! The chemicals are disguised under those “fresh scents.” And, they are incredibly harmful to us, and our overall health. We use this instead. It’s WAY cheaper, it’s crazy effective, and removes stains every single time.
Oh the bathroom! This is a space in our homes that should be a sanctuary, a retreat, and a place where we can have the best start to our day. Instead, many of us are bogged down by the chemical burden that completely consumes our beauty products, deodorant, fragrances, and toothpaste. News flash, every single one of these products that you can pick up from the store are chocked FULL of chemicals. Explore these safe alternatives that have transformed our health and our home instead.

Feeling a bit stressed after learning what is really hiding in your home? 
Strike a yoga pose (or 5) with our resident yoga expert herself, Amy Kaspar, of Country Road 5280. She’s got great tips to create a mindful, relaxed space while practicing proper yoga poses. 
Now that you’re refocused and recharged, let’s tackle your home together! I’d love to work with you to create the healthy home of your dreams.
Hit me up, and we can schedule a time to chat about making your goals of a healthy home a reality.
