Focusing on Personal Development

H & H Wholesale No Comments

Personal development is something that every single person should be continuously working on. We are a work in progress and it’s okay to have setbacks every once in a while, but keeping your eye on the prize when it comes to coming into your own is the main goal here. We’re going to be focusing in on the steps you should take to create hopefully what will be a smooth ride towards a better you that you wear loud and proud.

1. Take Time for Yourself

It seems like a lot of the time human beings tend to be afraid of being alone since there is a comprehensible, yet saddening misconception that being alone means that you’ll feel lonely. When in reality, being alone is the perfect time for you to reflect and grow. With personal development, the most important thing to master is the parts of yourself you’ve yet to understand so you can recognize your strengths and weaknesses and see where you need to evolve. With alone time, this is something that comes a lot easier. Surrounding yourself with people who push you in a positive direction is a wonderful thing too, but having just you and your thoughts in a raw state is another necessary thing to embrace. When you’re alone you can be so much more productive with all aspects of yourself with nothing holding you back. It is a special time for you to unwind and just be.

2. Keep up on Physical Health

Personal development may be perceived as something that is mainly a mental thing, but your physical health is essential to focus on as well. When you’re making changes with your physical health, it intertwines with your mental state. If you are continually treating your body poorly, then you’re ultimately setting yourself up for disaster. Your body is a fragile frame that you must nourish and treat properly to have it return the favor. You can start by incorporating as many natural and whole foods as you can into your diet so you always feel on top of your game. Food is our fuel and we should be treating it just like that. Exercise is another thing that people can sometimes let slip away due to a busy lifestyle, or just purely because it’s a lot of work most of the time. Strength and motivation towards working out is a hard thing to develop, but it’s worth it! Good news too, the possibilities on how to work out leisurely are endless. Going to the gym, doing yoga, strolling around your neighborhood, taking your pet to a local park, etc. You can make anything a pleasurable workout if you have the desire to do so. People shouldn’t just focus in on working their body to the bone either, you do need to give your body downtime. Relaxation and rest is something that we cannot live without. We need to let ourselves have this time so we don’t overdo it and completely ware ourselves out. Our bodies are not made to be constantly pushed over the edge. We have to treat our body like the temple that it is!

3. Create New Goals, Always

You want to make sure that while personally developing you don’t let yourself get stuck in a routine because of comfort. You want to forever be thinking of new ways and ideas to push yourself out of your comfort zone and to new heights so you can consistently become a better you. Having goals in development is a great tool for motivation too. Sometimes it’s hard to keep motivation when you have life throwing curve balls left and right, but if you document something on top of setting your mind to it, that’s all the motivation you need right there! A psychology professor from Dominican University in California named Dr. Gail Matthews actually had done quite a bit of research on this exact topic. She did a study surrounding the art and science of goal setting, and discovered that you become 42% more likely to complete a goal if you write them down (The Huffington Post). I don’t think there’s really any harm in simply writing down your goals now, do you?

4. Reflect on Progress

Start writing down your progress, no matter how minimal it may be. Every accomplishment is something to celebrate when you’re attempting to go towards a brighter future. Even if it’s as small as waking up a little bit earlier to get a hardier breakfast in, YOU did that and YOU made it happen. Taking small steps is just taking steps towards something much bigger, and that is definitely something worth documenting for future reflection. So, smile about that and keep on accomplishin’!

If you’re not satisfied with life, or do not feel fulfilled, you have the chance to make a change every single day. Don’t feel pressure from time or people around you when it comes to coming into your own. Personal development is something that is a nonstop transformative journey and this is YOUR journey. Enjoy the ride!

Living More Sustainably

H & H Wholesale No Comments

Living a sustainable lifestyle is something that ethical humans dream, if not strive, to achieve at some point in their lives. Even though it is definitely a struggle to live as self-sufficient person in this day and age, just by incorporating more “green” decisions here and there will make an enormous difference. When going towards a more sustainable lifestyle, know that you will not only be saving money and boosting your self satisfaction, but you will also be helping out with the downsize of landfills, reduction of your carbon footprint, promoting energy efficiency (HuffPost) and even more unarguably rewarding things that also give back to the planet. We are here to help bring awareness to some steps for you to consider bringing into to your daily life to help out your girl, Mother Nature.

1. Cut Down on Electricity

Electricity is something that a lot of us probably don’t focus on too often. We leave a light on here and there, fall asleep with the television on, keep our cell unnecessarily charging all night, but realistically things like this can cause a giant negative impact since a majority of people are living this way. If you are prone to accidentally leaving the lights on, look into purchasing LED or CFL bulbs instead of incandescent lights. LED and CFL bulbs last much longer and are more energy efficient. Even just opening up your blinds more often during the day and using natural light instead of the artificial nonsense is an significant change. Laundry is something else around the house that you can start modifying that will be largely beneficial. If you’re not in a rush to wear something, forget about throwing the garment in the dryer, hang it up to dry! No astronomical sacrifices here, just have to stay a tad bit more patient when it comes to your clothes drying. When the chilly nights start, be sure to bulk up on clothes instead of running your heat at an excessive temperature. Nothing two pairs of fuzzy socks and a comfy hoodie can’t fix!

2. Changing Food Habits

Food is something that most people seem to have the hardest time altering due to comfortable habits. Having to constantly be super conscience of what you’re consuming regularly is a hefty hurdle, but it’s well worth it. Going vegan isn’t for everybody, but it is something that has a really monumental impact on our environment and ourselves. A lot of people don’t realize that what they’re putting into their bodies is harming not only the animals, but the planet as well on a monstrous scale. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations did an assessment and concluded that the livestock industry is contributing more to greenhouse gases than transportation is (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). Even if you don’t follow a strict vegan diet, incorporating some form of a Mediterranean, pescetarian, vegetarian or vegan diet is useful for reducing greenhouse gas emissions immensely. A study done by Nature, the international journal of science, had found that if across the globe we all followed an equal combination of these types of diets, an 80% increase of greenhouse gas emissions from the food industry can be steered clear of (Nature). If you start maintaining your own garden, that could be a huge lifesaver as well. When you have your own garden you can start canning your own in-season fruits and veggies, be more motivated and inspired to home cook meals and even compost. Composting is material that can be used in your soil that will ultimately help your plants thrive. 30% of what we throw out in our trash to be sent to the dump is food scraps and waste from our yards, which could be used to benefit the earth all this time (EPA). No need to waste perfectly good nutrient and soil enhancers! If composting is something you’re interested in, check out this useful and easy to follow beginners guide.

3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Repurposing within your home, or even prepping it to be repurposed once it leaves your home, is an essential part of becoming self sustainable. A huge thing that consumers use an abundance of is plastic bags. No matter what type of shopping trip you’re planning on taking, it’s more than likely you’re going to be using a plastic bag provided by the company at checkout. Next time you’re about to go shopping, don’t forget to grab a handy reusable tote bag. Good news too, most stores are starting to provide purchasable reusable bags if you forget yours at home. If you use lots of plastic bags in your daily life for things other than shopping, look for other alternatives for other types of bags as well. They have an eco friendly bag for just about anything, even pet waste bags that are biodegradable! Another thing that a lot of homeowners tend to have in their house is takeout containers. Plenty of takeout containers now are made of plastic and are pretty sturdy compared to some old school to-go boxes. They are usually dishwasher safe, and something you’ll be able to use for meal prepping, storage containers and even DIY projects! Recycling is something that you should try out even if you don’t have a recycling bin in close proximity to your home. Just because there might not be something super close by, the trip to a nearby recycling bin is worth the trip. Recycling helps reduce the pollution put into the air caused by waste, and we want to keep our air as clean as possible for us and future generations to come, am I right?! The fun thing about recycling is that you may never know where your recycled material is going to end up, but you do know that it is being put towards something brand new. It could be backpacks, phone cases, beanies, bikes, toys, soaps, clothing, equipment, picnic tables, toothbrushes, kitty litter, birdhouses, shoes, etc. The list goes on and on and these things can be made from YOUR recycled material. You just have to simply make the effort to contribute!

There you have it, now you’re ready to start your journey to becoming more environmentally friendly. These steps seem to be a lot to handle when viewed on a large scale, but remember that breaking it down into small daily changes can make a massive difference over time. Be prepared to become physically and mentally healthier, more self-reliant and overall much more satisfied with life, all while sending earth in a more positive direction.
