Symptom of the Unknown: Laziness

As the paradigm of life begins to shift, I think there will be people approaching a new life journey of mastering their mind. One of the most difficult life challenges is creating a better self-image of yourself. We as a society have evolved in scientific and medical creations but have lost sight of the power of self-improvement. Many people go about their days burdened with unpursued dreams, negative self-talk, and expectations that others including parents may have placed over their shoulders. A yearn for change will bring up many personal questions but one most important of all, the difference between being lazy and uninspired in one’s life.

No pressure placed by anyone can be greater than the pressure placed on ourselves but with that being said what stops us from moving? When I say moving, I mean more so in the pursuit of our passions and everything we aspire to be. Often times we are quick to base it off of one vague word known as laziness to blanket over the myriad of emotions that stops people from chasing their dreams however the new question is where does it come from? What new age mental coaches have begun to ask is how to move people out of the fear state and into the abundant mindset. It has been determined that there is now a distinct correlation between fear and laziness, however with a few small changes we can begin to create a new reality for ourselves and the power and confidence to change our lives.

Laziness is the unwillingness to pursue goals, tasks, or new projects in terms of the current “comfort” in which our mental state currently resides in. Fear often times manifests itself unwanted energy and thought processes that hinder us from doing what it is that we love. Fear of failure, fear of unreached expectations, and fear of success are among the most common. Laziness is when you convince yourself that the fear of starting and never achieving is less valuable than ever igniting that dream in the first place. The self-dismantlement of one’s own spirit by negative self-talk to remind us of the false notion that our dream is unattainable. From the never wanting to hear the detrimental “I told you so” line to the heartbreak of never reaching your desired end goal can be discouraging.

There is however an end to all the mental madness. By priming ourselves with self-betterment tools and habits we can take the driver’s seat to changing our lives in whichever way we may choose to do so. Inspiration starts with the willingness to work on one’s self. It is understanding the idea that the more we begin to look and heal from within the more mental clarity and guidance we will have to bring us to all of our manifestations. We can give ourselves the permission to heal from the plagues of our past and look towards a new life by changing our perspective of how we view ourselves. Begin by telling yourself that you deserve it all and that you are absolutely worthy. Long are the days of the old you and welcome your hidden potential. Let go of those in the past who hurt you and focus simply on what you can do now to push you towards your dreams. Ask yourself questions such as “what do I like?” or “what would the better version of me look like?” Open ended questions about yourself will open new doors to new life creations. Remember the healthier and positive the questions you ask yourself are, the more abundant the answers will be.

Bar Soap: Benefits and Myths

Benefits:

Good for the Environment

Unlike liquid body washes that use excess amounts of plastic for their packaging, bar soaps eliminate the need for excess environmental waste products. As a company making an effort to provide sustainable options, our bar soap packaging is made from recycled materials as a way to make sure that we are cutting down on as much waste as possible.

 

Healthier on skin

Our body bars are made out of organic ingredients and essential oils that eliminate the harsh effects of non-natural body washes. While a lot of store brand body washes consist mostly of water and often times harsh chemicals our bars provide natural cleaning agents with powerful moisturizing properties that improve overall skin health and maintenance.

 

Reduced body odor

Essential oils are not only great for cleaning and moisturizing the skin but for body odor as well. Essential oils are naturally potent anti-odor agents due to their ability to stay on skin for an extended period of time. Essential oils such as lavender can even be found in perfumes for its longevity. As a result, our bar soaps provide a natural allure that last throughout the day to make sure you are clean and smell the best you possibly can.

 

No Artificial Preservatives

Artificial preservatives have had a long reputation for contributing to signs of unhealthy skin. Both the natural and essential oils in our bar soaps provided a lengthy shelf life and does not lose its effective cleaning traits.

 

Myths:

Bar soaps cannot be used on the face

Contrary to popular belief you can absolutely use bar soaps on skin. Often times traditional bar soaps were seen as being to harsh on the face but its more due to its unnatural ingredients. With that being said however we do recommend using a separate bar of soap exclusively on your face.

 

Bar soaps are unsanitary

Arguably one of the biggest misconceptions is that bar soaps are not sanitary. While there are small amounts of bacteria on bar soaps there are also traces of bacteria on your skin. The natural antimicrobial benefits of our soap keep bacteria to a minimum both on the surface of the bar and your skin itself. Rinse your bar for a few seconds before lathering and store the bar in a dry place until the next use.

 

Natural soaps do not clean

Natural antimicrobial ingredients are among the strongest cleaning agents in mother nature. They have the ability to deeply clean and sanitize the body and accommodate all skin types. Those with sensitive skin who are a bit more prone to skin irritation may find that natural soap is the way to go.
