We recently posted a request to share your New Years resolution with us on our @ingeniumnaturals Instagram account. Although the posts are still receiving hundreds of likes, of perhaps people secretly having one but not necessarily sharing their resolution, we also received comments from dozens of women sharing their resolutions with our community.
The majority would like to be more beautiful, with or without make-up. Others mentioned they would like to make better choices when it comes to the food they eat and their health.
Although I do not know the ages of the account holders, I was able to tell they varied quite a lot. Perhaps from 16 through 50 or so…but yet the goals were similar.
This leads me to understand there will always be an underling dissatisfaction about how we look, or how hard we are on ourselves when it comes to our image. It also tells me that as we get older we will continuously be striving to make better choices…and this throughout our adult lives.
The question I ask myself is…
Is it because we will never be satisfied with who we are or is it because we set ourselves up to fail, time and time again?
It’s a very difficult question to answer, and analysing the question and the answer will bring into play philosophical concepts we cannot begin to answer on this blog…but it is certainly a question that makes wonder isn’t it?
I believe it is a bit of both, and I also believe that we, as individuals, are not completely at fault. We are constantly comparing ourselves to the women we see in the media. We know this is wrong, we know they are very rarely natural beauties, but we still do it. It’s impossible not to.
But what if we just started comparing ourselves to the person we were last year? And do the same year after year? What if we finally decided to resolve to be a better version of ourselves?
Going back to what our Instagram followers most resolved to achieve in 2017…
♠ Being more beautiful
♠ Making better choices for our overall wellness
What if I told you that not only are these goals interrelated, but that they are also entirely achievable?
Making better health choices for ourselves has got to start NOW. Yes, certainly food is a temptation for all of us…after-all, it is our lifeline right? And it is precisely for this reason that we MUST choose wisely when it comes to what we put into our bodies…OUR.LIFE.LINE.
An excellent way to begin is with removing the toxins we have accumulated over time, while at the same time….
1. ensuring we don’t continue to ingest or
2. continue apply
…..chemically laced anything into or onto our bodies.
There are several ways we can achieve this, and in fact I posted 2 articles on how we can do this in THESKINUREIN Blog in past.
Adding a simple, and clean nutritional supplement such as a Chlorella Extract can definitely give you a boost in the right direction. Getting rid of toxins will lead to improved overall wellness, and in turn, clearer and healthier looking skin. Although smoothies can be an ideal method, we often don’t even have time to prepare them right? Add then a high quality encapsulated supplement like this one.

What other simple choices can we make to improve our overall wellness?
It is estimated that a woman applies an average of 168 chemicals to her body daily. It is not the individual, small amounts of each industrially produced synthetic chemical we should be concerned about, but rather the cumulative and combined effects, over time of these chemicals. The amassed absorption of these ingredients in our blood stream can cause grave consequences. From infertility, to changing hormones, to early onset puberty, allergies, and yes, even certain types of cancer. Is your health a priority for you? Are you influenced so much by the media that you purchase blindly without ever researching what might be best for YOU?
