The internet can give you immediate access to information on oodles of subjects at any given time. It answers questions, puts us in contact with others, and for many, it’s their way of working and earning a living. The internet controls life as we know it. And that’s the problem.

What do toxins do to the skin? High doses of toxins on the skin can cause irritations such as eczema and allergies.
What do hormone disruptors do to the body? Nothing good, that’s for sure! Endocrine disruptors have been known to kickstart learning disabilities and brain development problems, amongst other issues. …
None of us think twice about washing our hair regularly, showering, or brushing our teeth. So why do we put our skincare on the back burner?
Men might feel more reluctant to keep up with a good skincare routine because they think that their skin is tougher than women’s; because keeping up with a good routine is too time-consuming; or simply because it’s not something they view as important.
But, instead of looking for loopholes as to why we don’t need to look after our skin, let’s check out some of the reasons we undoubtedly need to take care of…
Some manufacturers like to use a simple trick to justify spiking the price of their brand new cosmetics. That is harping on about one of the ingredients. The ingredient that usually gets the limelight is vitamin C.
Don’t get me wrong, vitamin C in your skincare is fantastic. But just how much vitamin C is in the product you’ve got your eye on? Are they making a song and a dance of their product with added vitamin C with such small traces that you wouldn’t even notice the difference?
How can you tell how much of each ingredient you’re getting…

Ok, I get it. Starting a cattle farm in an inner-city apartment may be a somewhat impossible feat, not to mention a stinky one. So, here are some tips on how you can grow food in the city.
Put In a Garden
Dedicate a small section of your yard to planting a garden. And what can you do if your yard has a lot of shade? There are plenty of fruits and vegetables that thrive in the shade. Here are just some of them:

If you are in an apartment…
“It is only possible to homestead and grow your own food if you live out in the sticks.”
Stop right there! Homesteading and growing your food at home is something you can do even if you live in the heart of a bustling city! It’s true; you have to be a little more creative if you only have a small yard, balcony, or window ledge to work with. But getting over a challenge is part of the fun!
Let’s answer the million-dollar question. What is homesteading?
So what’s involved in living self-sufficiently…

Integrating healthy habits into your daily life might seem to be very tasking and constraining lifestyle, that isn’t a good notion. From my experience as one who always detested a routine lifestyle, I can only say it begins with a step; the journey to better physical, mental, and emotional health — a step indicating a conscious decision to live a healthy and vibrant life.
A healthy lifestyle demands consistency, determination, strong will, commitment, sacrifices. If you often visualize your future self as a strong and…
Always tidy up your house before you sleep. Why? This saves you time and allows you to focus on essential morning tasks.
Get rid of unnecessary items on the floors, sweep off dirt, take out the trash, clear out the sink, dispose of dirty clothes, make your bed. Your environment affects the quality of sleep you get at night, so keep it clean.
P.S. This would be an ideal time to brush your teeth. Brushing your teeth at night reduces the number of bacterias you wake up to in the morning.
This is a simple, intentional act of reflecting on…
Cut Down on the Alcohol
Yes, you heard me right.
I have noticed that most people went through a rough period in their early twenties (if not earlier), where they have absolutely no idea of what they are doing with their liver. I sure know what I’m talking about — I’ve been there, done that, too. As we grow older and hopefully a little wiser, some of us start to consume alcohol to help us fall asleep.
