Challenge Myself: Day #83 Say No To Toxic Chemicals

Today is Day #83 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today is to avoid toxic chemicals whenever you can. Toxic chemicals can be found in virtually every product on the shelves today- lotions, shampoo, and this list can go on and on.

If all of the products that were bad had a skull and crossbones on them, we wouldn't use them. Unfortunately, they do not. It is up to us to read the labels of products.

The book says,

Happiness is closely linked to good health, and one way to stay healthy is to avoid exposure to all kinds of toxic agents.

Read and follow safe-use labels on all products containing toxins or carcinogenic agents, including those for your garden, lawn or landscape.

You might instead choose pest-resistant plants, pull pest infected leaves and carefully dispose of them, yank out invasive weeds before they reseed themselves over the yard and use compost and mulch to create healthy soil.

Also, choose less-toxic products such as soaps and herbicidal oils to treat troublesome pest problems.

Sadly, toxic chemicals is in just about everything these days. You can limit the consumption of many toxic products by eating only foods that you grew yourself without pesticides or foods that you know are organic.

The biggest is the GMO and Monsanto in our foods today. GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. I personally Say No to Monsanto and GMO foods. I love that Aldi Grocery is now removing all the artificial anything from their food and replacing with all natural.
