I was just reading that 45% of Americans make New Years Resolutions and that 24% fail on keeping them. I also was reading the top 10 resolutions that most people make. The number 1 was of course to lose weight and number 2 was to get organized.. I was surprised that getting healthy was number 5. spending more time with family was number 10 and quitting smoking was number 7. I thought that these would have been higher up on the list. One of the things I am striving for this year is to exercise a whole lot more. I am sure that is on a lot of other peoples list also. lolI got this total gym a few years ago and love it!! I haven’t used it as much as I wanted to this past year so now it is in our bedroom where I see it each day. Hopefully this will inspire me to use it a lot more often.This mini re bounder is awesome! You should Google the benefits of using one of these because it is just amazing what jumping or just lightly bouncing on it can do for you! Every time I use this I feel wonderful and have so much energy. I have decided to move it into our family room that way I will use it so much more while we are watching television.
This past year one of my resolutions was to drink more water each day and I am so happy to say that I really have! One reason is that I started infusing my water with fruits, berries and herbs. I now look so forward to drinking water now.So are you one of the 45% that make New Year resolutions?
Also I want to send out a big THANK YOU to NASA in Huntsville Alabama.I got a call from a representative of NASA the other day telling me that some of the engineers there use our Eco Natural products and were raving about them! One of the engineers had specially requested that we be invited to an event that they are having there in a few months. We are blessed that we have been included in this event and that the engineers love our all natural chemical free products!!

I was reading the other day that 40% of all edible food products in the United States is wasted each year.That is around 34million tons!!!! Most of the food that is discarded each week is food that we fail to eat or just let go bad.
Food waste occurs at many levels. Farm fresh fruit and veggies are often left unharvested because their appearance does not meet aesthetic standards imposed by grocery stores. We also find that we buy more than we will use sometimes. Also a lot of time pieces are bruised during shipping and are discarded as well. Food waste represents the single largest component of all municipal solid waste going on in landfills.
Here are some ways to reduce our “food print”Getting into a habit of taking inventory of your pantry and fridge each week before you plan your grocery shopping can be a big help.Place leftovers at eye level so that they can be seen and move older items to the front. Make your list and stick to it! You will be surprised not only what you will save but how much less food you will discard just by sticking to your grocery list!
If you find you have limp celery or carrots, peppers,onions and mushrooms that were left over from the previous week and need to be used right away throw them all in a pot and make homemade broth that can be canned or frozen and used at a later date. Also by adding a few more ingredients of your choice great homemade soup can be made.When tend to over buy when we shop hungry so don’t go to the grocery with your stomach growling.Also if you buy local fruits and veggies they are not having to be transported far so they will be less likely to be bruised. A big bonus is that they are picked ripe so you don’t have to wait for them to ripen so you can use them! So let me ask you a question. Do you throw away a lot of food each week or do you do any of these tips and use most of the food you buy?

At the beginning of the New Year most people make a list of resolutions of things that they want to accomplish. I want to issue a challenge to you and hope that you are up for it. The challenge is to start on a small scale if need be to eliminate some of the toxins in your home. I think that you will find it to be a lot easier than you think.
Did you know that the average home contains 500- 1000 chemicals? Many of these you are unable to see, taste or even smell. Indoor air is usually 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. is One of the easiest things that you can do is to leave your shoes outside the door.It is estimated that 85% of the dirt in our homes comes in from the bottom of our shoes! Just think about where you have been walking lately and what your shoes have come in contact with! Look how much dirt and toxins wouldn’t get in our homes if we just left our shoes right outside the door. Pretty easy to accomplish wouldn’t you say? Many of the cleaning products we use today are full of harmful chemicals. I found this awesome recipe for making your own enzyme cleaner a few years back and always make sure I have some on hand. It only has 3 ingredients and cleans wonderfully. If you would like the recipe I used it is here You can also use things like sea salt, vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda to clean extremely well and without any harmful chemicals. What makes using these products even better is the cost! So much cheaper than buying expensive toxic filled products. Do you think that you could do either one or both of these things to eliminate harmful toxins in your home?
Are you ready for cold and flu season? I encourage you to look for all natural chemical free products this year. Check out our Germ Shield line along with all of our other organic chemical free products at Eco Natural
Happy Happy New Year to all of you!!
