A clean lifestyle doesn’t just refer to what you put in your body; it includes how you live your life in every aspect, including how you dress, how you consume entertainment, and how much time you spend outside interacting with other people.
When living a clean lifestyle, it’s important to give attention to all areas of your life to be sure they’re free from things that could negatively affect your well-being or happiness. This guide will show you the ins and outs of living an authentic and healthy clean lifestyle.
Minimizing Exposure to Chemicals
Chemicals are found in everything from food and cleaning products to beauty products and furniture. Chemicals can be both good and bad for your health- but we don’t really know what is bad for us! Minimizing your exposure to chemicals will help you feel better, lead a healthier life, and live more sustainably. Here are some tips on how you can start living more cleanly:
1. Eat fresh foods as much as possible- they have fewer chemicals than processed foods.
2. Use natural cleaning products whenever possible- they contain less harmful chemicals that may not be safe for your health or the environment.
3. Buy organic produce when it’s available in your area- avoid pesticides (which can be harmful) by eating organic produce!
Minimizing Contact with Germs
It’s estimated that we will interact with over 10,000 germs today. It’s important to minimize contact with these germs in order to maintain our clean lifestyle. Before heading out the door, wash your hands, including under your nails and under the folds in your skin.
If you don’t have time for a full handwashing, make sure you use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash your hands with soap and water. Try not touch anything that is visibly dirty and always make sure that what you are touching is thoroughly clean before using it again.
Minimize Electronic Clutter
1) Unsubscribe from e-mails. A clean lifestyle starts with less junk clogging up your inbox. Be as decisive as you can about whether you want each newsletter, catalogue, or e-commerce email to be part of your life, and then tell the sender directly by clicking unsubscribe on the bottom of their e-mail.
2) Declutter your desk. Having an organized workspace is a key component to living a clean lifestyle. Clear off your desk so there is room for creativity and accomplishment.
3) Remove clutter from your home. Clean out closets, drawers, bookshelves, dresser tops, countertops—any space in which you might find excess items that are no longer needed or desired.
4) Clean out your refrigerator periodically. Get rid of any spoiled food and products nearing their expiration date (including condiments).
5) Eliminate time wasters: Put all temptations at least 6 feet away from where you work—and walk away if necessary!
The first step in living a clean lifestyle is minimizing waste. The easiest way to do this is by buying less. And when you do buy, use those products all the way up before buying more. Don’t let food go bad before eating it, don’t leave clothes in your closet after one wear, and don’t buy new furniture just because your old couch has a few stains on it.
If you can’t find ways to minimize waste in your daily life, try looking at things from an alternate perspective- what would happen if you kept doing what you’re doing? The resources that we have are finite, and using up all of them will eventually have disastrous consequences for our planet. By living a clean lifestyle now, we can ensure that there is enough for generations to come.
Minimizing Physical Clutter
Doing something as simple as tidying up your bedroom can be the start of a healthy clean lifestyle. When you finish up for the day, make your bed, put any dirty clothes in the laundry hamper and put away any clutter.
It only takes a few minutes but doing so will help you sleep better and keep your room cleaner. This also applies to any other room in your house! Pick up all the toys, clear off the counter tops and wipe down the surfaces with vinegar or lemon juice.
The less clutter you have, the less dirt and germs will spread around your home! Clean clothing: A clean lifestyle means that we should not neglect our personal hygiene either. Wash any stains out of clothing before wearing it again – this includes getting rid of pet hair that inevitably finds its way onto clothes (no matter how often we vacuum). Make sure you wear shoes when walking around outside to avoid bringing in dirt from outdoors into your home.
A clean lifestyle is one of the best things you can do for your health. There are many benefits, including:
-Having a clean home means less dust and allergens in the air, which makes it easier to breathe and reduces asthma attacks. -A clean house is more likely to be free of pests like roaches or mice, which can carry bacteria and viruses. -Eating cleaner means less exposure to chemicals in processed foods that have been linked with high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. -You’ll feel great about yourself knowing that you’re living an environmentally conscious lifestyle! Use these tips every day for a cleaner life!
