3 Ways to Reduce Toxins in Your Life
By Genevieve Cunningham
Toxins. You’ve heard the word. You know toxins exist. You’ve heard that they’re basically everywhere -- in our air and food and water and everywhere else. But if you’re like most people, you haven’t really put any serious thought into whether or not toxins actually affect your health. Maybe it’s time. The truth is that, even though we generally can’t see them, toxins can damage our health and lives. If we want to keep ourselves and our bodies safe, it’s our job to reduce toxins as much as possible. But how? If you’re looking for simple ways to reduce the toxins in your life, take a look at these three tips that you can start today.
The amount of toxins in the air is going to vary widely based on where you live. Some areas simply have more smog and pollution than others. But no matter where you live, chances are really good that an air purifier will help. Many find that when they add an air purifier to their homes, their allergies are reduced, headaches are less severe, and concentration improved with just this one simple step.
Our water is clean compared to many other places around the world, but it’s still full of chemicals. While many of these chemicals are necessary for sanitary reasons, filtering some of them out may actually improve your health as well as the taste of the water. Grab a water filter that attaches directly to your faucet, or you can buy a series of pitchers or water bottles that serve the same purpose in smaller amounts.
Cleaning products can be so harsh. Though it’s important for your cleaning products to be strong enough to kill off germs and bacteria, it shouldn’t be so strong that it causes your body harm. Luckily, there is a wealth of more gentle, yet effective products that you can buy. Check out the cleaning section of your local grocery store, or do a quick search online to find safe and effective cleaning products for your home.
It can get really overwhelming really quickly to try to cut all toxins out of your life in one go. Don’t do that to yourself. Slow and steady wins the race. Use these simple products to reduce toxins and feel better, and learn as you go for a healthier, happier, toxin-free life.
