There has been a lot of debate about going green and natural living. It’s almost like the Mommy wars at times. If you profess that you want to be green and experience natural living; many expect you to be perfect over night. And if you happen to struggle giving up a non-organic food or medication, or forbid- can’t quite give up sugar! Well, you get jumped all over and criticized for being a horrible person and not serious, and not GREEN enough.
Natural Living is a Process not an immediate change
Being in the spotlight with our blog; I see it happen a lot. And I see other friends go through the GREEN wars too! To that I say “STOP IT!”
You don’t have to be 100% organic and perfect to enjoy natural living. And you don’t have to get there all in one day! It is a process. It’s a beautiful journey as you make little changes at a time! So stop beating yourself up. And Please; stop beating up those who are making their journey one step at a time to reach a more natural living.
Our family has been making little changes here and there over the last 11 years. It’s a process. Are we perfect? Goodness NO! We have many areas we can improve on if we want to be 100% natural living. But that isn’t really our end goal. It’s not to be natural for the sake of being natural and cool. We do it for other benefits like our health.
We are also new pet owners as of the last 3 years. And until recently we hadn’t really even give much thought about pet food, or pet products being natural. We just didn’t even know of such possibilities. It’s been about 6 months of us researching more natural products for our pets. Trying to find the best food and products to help encourage a natural living for our pets too. I already shared with you the benefits of natural pet products. So now it’s time to take the first step in the journey to include our pets in our natural living lifestyle.
A great way to get started is with the #PawNatural Challenge! This challenge is a way to get people to start thinking about making more natural, wholesome decisions for their pets. We are not asking for anyone to make a complete change overnight, but with the help of Pet360’s Only Natural Pet product line, there are many simple things we can do as pet parents to help our pets live happy, healthy lives.
For us; taking the Only Natural Pet #PawNatural Challenge is a no brainier. It helps us to actually look at the products we use with our pets and really check to make sure they really are best for our pets.
One thing we are looking for are natural products that are beneficial to both cats and dogs. Simply because of the nature of our pets. They are constantly sharing everything from a pet bed, toys, hiding spots, water dish, etc. The cat even gets into dog’s food and water, no matter how hard we try to keep him out of it! Although we have tried to get the cat to use his own water dish; he is still constantly right there drinking out of the dogs water dish and sniffing and sneaking tastes of the dog’s food.
They also both help spread the mess and smell around the house! So We are trying out the Only Natural Pet stain and odor solution to help remove both cat and dog smells and stains. we also want to keep the pets safe from bugs and such so the Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense spray is a no brainier to try out.
I’m using a few select Only Natural Pet Products to help us find a solution to our Natural Living lifestyle with our pets. And I’m excited to share with you in a few weeks how these products have helped us with our next step to natural living.
What little steps do you take to create a more natural living lifestyle for your pets?
