ELIMINATING TOXINS FROM YOUR LIFE

Toxins are small molecules, peptides or proteins that are capable of causing disease on contact with or absorption by body tissues. Toxins are something which affects you and your body’s health and you should strive for avoiding them as much as possible in your everyday life if you want to be as healthy as possible. However, it can be difficult in our age today, because we are exposed to toxins almost all the time without us even being aware of it. But, if you learn which things you can change in your everyday life in order to get less exposed to toxins, then this is a great way to begin if you want to live a healthier life.

Here are some of the different areas in your life where you should be aware of toxins.

Skin, body and hair products
Some of the first things to look at when trying to eliminate toxins from your life are all the products you use on your skin, hair and body. Such as shampoo, conditioner, cleansers, cremes, body lotions, toothpaste, deodorant, make-up etc. You can strive to buy products with more natural ingredients, or you can simple make your own natural products and in that way be completely sure that they only contain natural and pure ingredients.

Cleaning products 
This is an area many people might forget about when trying to clean out in their products at home. But this area is so important, since you clean everything with these products, the sink, your food plates, your kitchen surfaces where you prepare food etc. All these cleaning products that you use in these places will somehow get in contact with you as well.
Here you can find some of the natural cleaning products you can use instead.

Food 
Go for organic food and thereby avoid food which is sprayed with a lot of pesticides. Pesticides does absolutely nothing good for your body.

Clothes 
The clothes you wear is in constant contact with your body, and regular clothes is also full of chemicals. Therefore you should go for buying organic clothes if you really want to avoid as many toxins in your life as possible.


Have you thought about these things before? Or, is there any other area that you think should have been included as well?

Få orden i dit hjem og sind ved at rydde op

Skærmbillede 2016-04-01 kl. 13.03.21Efter at have læst bogen ‘The life-changing magic of tidying up’ af Marie Kondo, blev jeg vildt inspireret og fik bare lyst til at rydde ud i alle mine ting og minimere hvad jeg ejer, og få orden på de ting jeg faktisk har. Jeg har stadig ikke prøvet KonMari metoden helt til fulde endnu, men jeg har lavet en seriøs udsmidning af ting som jeg ikke føler at jeg har brug for og er glad for længere. Herefter gik jeg igang med en stor oprydning – én ting jeg især syntes var banebrydende, var da jeg så en youtube video af forfatteren til bogen (Marie Kondo) som folder tøj. Jeg har altid bare lagt mit tøj på plads på en ret standard måde, men ved at følge denne metode har jeg fået SÅ meget mere plads og meget mere orden i mine skuffer. Det med at få smidt ud og ryddet op i sine ting, har også givet mere ro i sindet, for nu har de fleste ting en fast plads og der ligger ikke og flyder tilfældige ting, og dermed kræver at jeg skal rydde op hele tiden. Efter dette er jeg også blevet meget mere intesseret i minimalisme, og har hørt en del podcast og set nogle youtube videoer om dette – men meget mere om det i et andet indlæg.

Hvis I har lyst til at læse I kan købe bogen på engelsk her og på dansk her!

Jeg blev så grebet af denne metode med at folde tøj på, at jeg spurgte min kæreste om jeg også måtte gå i krig med hans tøj skuffer – så det gjorde jeg og resultatet kan ses nedenunder, før og efter billeder.
