Halloween Can be Healthy!

Halloween can be a balancing act for parents who are in the business of raising healthy kids. 
With intentional good choices Halloween does not need to be a free fall of junk food extravaganza for your children. 
 On the other hand, what is Halloween without the collection of sweet delights!  So how do you balance it all?

Make it a Minimalist Holiday and Stress Less

Ok, I just checked the calendar and there are only five weeks until Thanksgiving!! Whoa… and only nine weeks until Christmas!!  Do you feel the stress coming on?  How about considering a minimalist holiday? Strip away the holiday trappings and get down to the essentials.

Tap into what is of greatest value. 

·         Adjust your expectations and commitments according to your values. 

Pace yourself.

·         Beware of over-committing.  What do you want to do this holiday season?  Who do you want to spend the holidays with?

·         Start a holiday planning schedule that will allow margin for mind, body, and soul.  Your schedule should reflect your values.

·         Budget wisely.  Stop over-spending and live within your means!  This will reduce much tension and stress!

Cherish the small stuff.

·         The little notes, the handmade gifts; these can be more meaningful than expensive store bought gifts.

·         Time is a gift in itself.  How much time will you spend with those you cherish.

Keep your home simplistically tidy.

·         Stay on target with your green cleaning routines and you'll avoid the trap of a mad cleaning spree before company comes!  

·         Stay well stocked with great non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning products.

You can enjoy this upcoming holiday season with less stress with the right focus!
Stay tuned for more encouraging tips to navigate you through the holidays.

Green Cleaning As Prevention!

We have all heard of preventative medicine; caring for our bodies through proper diet, exercise, and routine health checkups at the doctor's office. 

We have all heard of preventative maintenance for our vehicles and homes.  Preventative maintenance for our vehicles such as oil changes, tire rotations, fluid/belt checks, etc.  Maintenance for the home as in furnace filter replacements, air conditioner tune up—to name a couple.

Can green cleaning your home be considered a key preventative act?  Absolutely!
Five Reasons Green Cleaning is Preventative:

Helping Families in Crisis

Have you known of a family in crisis and with the best of intentions told them, "If there is anything I can do to help, let me know."  Did that person take you up on the offer?  More times than not, the extended offer is not taken.  Why?  For most of us, it is very difficult to ask for help, even if we really need it.

To avoid missed opportunities to serve a family or individual in need, our offers of help must be specific and targeted. 
For example: 
Avoid saying:  If it would help you we can bring a dinner over, just let me know.

Better stated:  What evening would be good for me to bring dinner over?

Tacking on the phrase, "just let me know" will 98% of the time not be responded to.  Telling the individual that you will be making dinner for them, they simply need to tell you what night to bring it alleviates to a larger extent the uncomfortableness of the offer.  If also shows that you really mean business and will follow through.
Perhaps childcare is more of a need during the crisis.  Offer a specific event or place you would like to take their child(ren), name the date and time unless there is more flexibility for the parent in need to give you that information.

If time is not something you can devote, then mail a card or drop by their place with a card and include a gift card for gas, grocery, or restaurant.  The unique need will dictate the proper gift card.
Another way to bless an individual or family in need would be to pay for a green cleaning company to clean their home.  In crisis, a family's attention narrows done to the immediate circumstance while other tasks simply cannot be handled. 
The ideas to serve are too numerous to write.  Be aware and attentive to the possibilities and then be specific in how you can help!

Would you like to do more but…
Your lack of available time plague you when it comes to helping people in need.

Your lack of time keeps you from volunteering at the organization you are passionate about.

Stay tune… You won't want to miss our next post on time stealers as we look at ways many people have been able to "get time back."
We hope this post has given you inspiring new ways to come alongside people you know who are in crisis or great need.  Let us know if this has been of help, leave a comment:)

Household Cleaners and Your Health

There is a growing body of research that points to serious health effects from the use of chemical laden cleaners including laundry detergents.  Individuals most susceptible to chemical laden cleaners are infants, young children, those with asthma, allergies, and respiratory issues as well as those with weakened immune systems (including cancer patients).    If the research, coming from varied institutes and locations all point in the same direction, why are there not stronger warnings, messages, and even bans placed on these dangerous cleaners?  
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is said to be monitoring about 300 environmental chemicals that have been found within the human body. Many of these chemicals can be found in household cleaning products.  Why are they simply monitoring these chemicals?

Take for example asbestos:  How long was asbestos "being monitored" before something was done about its dangerous health affects?  We now have thousands of people with mesothelioma!
EWG reported a 2010 study done by the New York State Department of Health found that "children born to women who held cleaning jobs while pregnant have an elevated risk of birth defects."   Are women being warned of this occupational hazard?

What's the hold up?
"Big money" is at stake if these products were banned.

Regulating industries is a touchy subject, especially if lobbyist' money is at risk.

 A necessary baseline:
People should have the right to decide what products they want to use.  With that said, for the health and safety of the consumer, there needs to be much greater levels of transparencies regarding the chemicals used in household cleaning products and their true dangers.

What can YOU do:
At the grass roots, one way consumers can make a change on a national scale is to "vote" with their wallets.  This is occurring within the food industry as more and more people are purchasing organic foods, more organic food choices are becoming available.  The same, grass roots effort can bring positive changes in other industries!

For the sake of yourself, your family, pets, and environment seriously think about the household cleaners you have in your home.  If they are NOT 100% all-natural, you are more than likely inviting unwanted health issues into your home.  If you already have family members that have asthma, allergies, and or weakened immune systems; chemical laden cleaners will further aggravate their health problems.

HG Labs family of green cleaners: Brightly Green, Harmony Aromatherapy, Baby Harmony, are 100% all natural, sustainable and non-toxic.  Grandmother of ten, Sharron McAdams, founder and owner of HG Labs LLC. made sure that her green cleaning products were safe!  If they are green clean safe for her grandchildren, they are safe for your family!   

If you own a residential/office cleaning company, seriously consider the ingredients in the cleaning products you use.  For the safety of yourself, your employees and clients—avoid toxic cleaning products! 

HG Labs' Brightly Green Cleaners is a leader in providing wholesale green cleaning products.
