- Combine (a number of things) into a coherent whole.
This is my challenge.
I love to learn, I was that kid in elementary and high school that actually enjoyed class and homework (most of the time) and wanted to challenge myself to learn more and raise the bar. Then throughout college I was overwhelmed with information, I suddenly understood with much more clarity the overused saying “ignorance is bliss.”
Though I don’t actually buy into the concept of ignorance is bliss, I do constantly ask myself how do I take ALL of this information in my head and apply it to my life. How do I actually make my kids future better by knowing this. How can I share this with those I love without overwhelming them in the process.
I don’t have the answers to these questions. But I am going to try my best. I need to consistently focus on making simple changes and being consistent.
SIMPLE and CONSISTENT
Those are my goals in trying to synthesize all the info on healthy eating and living that I feel are most important to our family right now. And that I feel will make the most impact.
My focus areas in being simple and consistent are:
FOOD – everything that goes into our mouths. Strive for it to have less ingredients, be nutrient dense and organic and for it to have a positive effect on our bodies. Here are the kids enjoying the first harvest from the garden – radishes!
PERSONAL CARE – everything that goes on our bodies. If I don’t know the ingredients then don’t get it. Research anything I don’t know what it is. Try to make as much as possible at home or use simple household ingredients when possible!
RELATIONSHIPS – Be the best wife, mother and friend I can be. Do this by first working to find my own happiness in all that I am doing and then be able to spread that to those around me. Cherish those who are a part of my life. Be present in the moment of what is happening around me.
DE-CLUTTER – Slowly start to go through notes and books I have and pull out the most pertinent important information to focus on. Get rid of household items that are unnecessary or unused. Stop doing activities that are wasting time and don’t have a purpose.
Awesome, by writing this post I managed to lay out a little bit of a plan and wrap my head around where to focus.
