We would all do well to continue our mindfulness past the food we are forking into our bodies. Thankfully, it is growing increasingly common for the average consumer to read the labels on her food, and more importantly, move away from any food wearing a label altogether. As we are more mindful to eat from the earth, we now need to teach ourselves to be even more mindful and to live from the earth.
I won't get into some of the truly terrifying effects and origins of some common beauty product ingredients in this post- my intent is not to scare. I don't feel that we should make decisions and live our lives out of fear. What I do believe is that when you know better, you do better. Let's be aware, and begin to live more mindfully.
