New Year, New You: Going Organic for Health and Beauty

As the new year unfolds, many people are reflecting on their health, wellbeing, and lifestyle and thinking about making some changes. New year, new start. If you're aiming to make some positive changes for yourself and your family, then considering an organic lifestyle could be for you. The wide ranging benefits for you, your family, and the environment mean you should definitely think about making the change.
 
What's for dinner?
 
If you've thought about 'organic' before, it's probably to do with organic food - a relatively common sight now in supermarkets alongside regular options. But just what is the difference? Exactly what constitutes "organic" differs slightly from country to country, but broadly it refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed: without the use of non-natural fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and genetically-modified crops (GMOs). Organic meat, fish, and dairy must have been raised outdoors and given organic feed, and not be given certain medicines or hormones. This all means that the food on your table - and in your body - contains less chemicals. It's also often fresher food, as it doesn't contain the preservatives of non-organic food. Organic farming is also better for the animals and the wider environment, and organic food has been found to have higher nutrient contents.
 
Putting your face on
 
Even if you're already buying organic food, what about other areas of your life? An organic lifestyle also includes other items around the house and in our daily lives. Opting for organic makeup and other body care products is also important, because these items can contain many nasty chemicals too, such as parabens, silicones, sulfates, and GMOs. Choosing cosmetic products with natural and organic ingredients means you can control what is absorbed into your body and benefit from the natural botanical goodness of nature. Another plus is that many organic and natural beauty companies are also good at responsible sourcing of ingredients and ethical manufacturing processes, rather than being part of big multinational conglomerates.
