When people think about adopting a more ‘natural’ lifestyle, they imagine it to be a complex and expensive process. But contrary to popular belief, living a natural lifestyle usually involves nothing more than a simple tweaking of how you live normally.
How to Do It
- Eat fresh and organic foods: Ditch the fast food, like burgers and fries, and other things loaded with sugar and preservatives, and start eating fresh and organic foods. Add more vegetables to your diet and avoid processed food items.
- Plant trees: A lot of deforestation has happened globally, with many people cutting down trees for personal use. If you want to live a more natural lifestyle, you can do your part by planting more trees.
- Stop driving fuel-guzzling cars: If you are travelling a relatively short distance, consider walking. If not, you can use a bicycle or an energy-saving vehicle to make the trip. Cars that use large amounts of petrol cause pollution that is harmful, both to you and the people around you.
- Use natural beauty products: When you are shopping for beauty products, such as deodorant and shampoo, opt for the natural ones that do not contain many chemicals, which can linger on long after you have used them.
- Use non-toxic household cleaners: Did you know that you can replace the harsh chemicals and bleach that you use in your home with something as mild and natural as vinegar? Try to use natural cleansers, and if you are buying from the shops, opt for gentler and more natural materials.
- Filter your water: Filtered water is healthy and gets rid of the chemicals that are often used to ‘purify’ drinking water. When you filter water, it reverts back to its natural state and does not contain chemicals that can harm your health.
