As the New Year unfolds, it’s the perfect time to reset and prioritize your well-being. A crucial aspect of a healthy lifestyle often overlooked is the environment we live in. Creating a clean and non-toxic home is not only beneficial for your physical health, but also for the planet.

Here are 10 healthy habits to jump-start your New Year:
    1. Green Cleaning Products: Swap out conventional cleaning products for eco-friendly alternatives. These products are not only gentle on your health but also on the environment, reducing your carbon footprint.  You can purchase these locally or make them at home using earth safe ingredients.  Some easy alternatives can even be found in your pantry including vinegar, baking soda, and citric acid.zero waste cleaning
  1. Declutter Mindfully: A clutter-free space contributes to a clutter-free mind. Take the time to declutter your home by donating, repurposing, or recycling items you no longer need. A minimalist approach can create a serene environment.  What you have in your home should have purpose to you whether the items are aesthetically pleasing or useful.   Organize your items so they are easily accessible when needed.  This will reduce future unnecessary purchases.
  2. Natural Air Purification: Invest in indoor plants known for their air-purifying properties. Plants like snake plants, spider plants, and peace lilies can improve indoor air quality, making your home a healthier place to live. Also always be sure your air filters are regularly replaced and surfaces, such as fans, dusted.open window with plants inside
  3. Filtered Water: Prioritize hydration with a focus on clean water. Install a water filtration system to reduce contaminants, providing you with a steady supply of fresh and pure water for optimal health.  Use stainless steel or glass bottles to keep hydration clean and easy on-the-go.
  4. Sustainable Practices: Incorporate sustainable practices into your daily routine. Reduce purchasing new items, choosing sustainable, long lasting materials when you need to, reuse and repurpose items you already have, compost food scraps, and recycle. Other easy additional practices include unplugging unused electronics, carpooling, and shopping local. Small changes in your habits can collectively make a significant impact on the environment.
  5. Mindful Eating: Start the year on a healthy note by adopting mindful eating habits. Choose whole, organic foods and incorporate more fruits, vegetables, and plant-based options into your diet for a nutrient-rich lifestyle.  If you have the space, consider making a garden to grow you own foods or support local farmers near you.
  6.  Regular Exercise Routine: Establish a consistent exercise routine that suits your lifestyle. Whether it’s a daily walk, yoga, or hitting the gym, regular physical activity is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.
  7. Quality Sleep: Prioritize quality sleep by creating a calming bedtime routine and ensuring your sleep environment is conducive to rest. A well-rested body and mind are fundamental to a healthy and productive lifestyle.
  8. Digital Detox: Reduce screen time and practice a digital detox. Unplug from electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime to improve sleep quality and promote a healthier work-life balance.
  9. Community Engagement: Connect with your local community and engage in activities that promote social well-being. Whether it’s volunteering, joining a community group, or participating in eco-friendly initiatives, fostering connections benefits both you and the environment.
