Network Marketing aligns with my values of Idle Time, Meritocracy, & Democracy.

While my kids are kids, I especially want to spend most of my time doing mostly fun things.  So I am really intent on investing my working hours into something with significant return.  Being a Wellness Advocate is straight forward, and flexible.  There are a few key rainmaking activities, and its up to me how much I do at any given moment. 

Modern-day Simpling (verb) with modern-day Simples (noun)

In European medieval times the art of growing and using herbs for medicine was called Simpling and the herbs themselves were called Simples.  The use of CPTG essential oils as Simples is an extremely practical solution to the barriers to integrating plant-based remedies into one's household.

If I ignore the facts, I have been anti-biotic-free since 2002.

I believe my success has come from a consistent awareness and on-going reduction of toxic loading across these areas of my life: household furnishings, cleaners, cosmetics, clothing, medications, and food.  In fact, I want all of us to be able to incorporate non-toxic, beneficial household products and solutions into our homes, so that we have the resources to care for our families, without sacrificing health through on-going exposure to harmful substances.  Doesn't everyone deserve time to rest, be cared for, and recover?!

Week 1, Day 3: On the road home to my healthy weight!

For about 18 months, I have been trying to figure out what will be the thing that will work for me?  I recently discovered that during this time, since my youngest turned 1 year, I have gained over 30lbs.  I am at the same weight I was at full term pregnancy almost 3 years ago.  No wonder my shoulders ache, my lower back feels vulnerable, my knees hurt, and the knot of tension of trying to hold it all together in my diaphragm makes me feel like I can't breathe properly!

We are Hausfrauen-4-Life!

H4L is Hausfrauen-4-Life, an idea that evolved amongst myself and a handful of my inner circle of new mum friends, who are devoted to living their values!

These days, a large part of Hausfrauen, or home-making, is acquiring the resources to do our work with intentional, intellectual, and emotional integrity.  In the age of excess, consumerism, and disposables, when we can have everything, so much of it is turning out to be such toxic garbage.

How do we live our values?  How do we get what we really want?  How do we get what we really need?
