Happy new year everyone!! What is your resolution for the upcoming year, are you interested in living more simply and naturally? We are always looking for better ways to do things and we are very interested in getting back to the basics in life. Things like spending more time with family, adopting a more healthy diet, growing some of our own food, composting, recycling and all that good stuff! Have you ever needed to find a home remedy or a natural alternative? Did you find what you wanted searching the web?
I thought it would be beneficial to offer some truly relevant and helpful information for you from writers all over the blogosphere! This is the goal of my naturally and simply living blog carnival. You can find submission info and more at the end of this post. Now I would like to present to you the 1st edition of the Naturally and simply living blog carnival:
It’s January and before you know it spring will be here! If you have a green thumb and will be gardening in 2008 you should consider composting! Food scraps can be recycled via composting and can make all the difference in your garden! Over at Hedgewizard’s Diary you can learn How to Make a Simple Worm Bin from Free Materials, worm composting is a great way to get great gardening soil and it will reduce the amount of stuff that goes to the dump!
Did you know one of the most common new years resolutions is to “loose weight” or “get in shape”? Every year people set out to make a physical change but hey forget that diet and nutrition is the way to positively impact your body! If you are looking for ways to make a physical change you need to take a look at your nutrition! A fascinating article called 5 of the greatest foods for your health can get you started thinking about your diet and nutrition so you can indeed become healthier and look better! If you are ready for a radical change in diet you can also look into a vegan lifestyle or you can pledge to stay raw if that suits you! Getting healthy is all about what you choose to put into your body so if you resolve to look better you have to feed your body better first!
Pledge to live a more fulfilling life in 2008 by getting back to what really matters in your life, but first you need to know what really matters most to you. An intriguing article posted by Edith reminds us of how fleeting life is in the article If Today Was the Last Day of My Life. Spending every day relishing in the present is a great resolution for many in 2008.
Others wish to get closer to nature or to stop and smell the flowers more as described in the article How We Can Find Healing in Nature. Too often we get wrapped up in the day to day obligations and we forget to enjoy the present. This can often make us unhappy and it can have a detrimental effect on our quality of life so start off the new year with a new lease on life!
Focus on the simple aspects of your life that bring you joy and make time for them! Treat your body kindly as it is your vessel in this life. Eat healthy and take time for yourself, you need to make the best of this life you have as you never know how long you will have!
