As we say goodbye to dreadful 2020, we welcome a New Year full of hopes for a prosperous 2021. When it comes to creating resolutions, as you have kids, a personal list gets traded in for family goals. In writing your family New Year resolutions, consider resolving for a healthier year.
Health Is The Top New Year Resolution
Did you know that health is the top resolution for most people? Better health tends to include food choices that entail a better diet and more exercise. However, statistically, only 9.2 percent of individuals end up actually achieving their goals. Primarily because lists tend to be overwhelmingly long and the pressure one puts on themselves to achieve success is often inflated. You can still put better health for your family as a new priority without HUGE expectations that might set you up to fail.
Baby Steps Towards Success
No one learns to run before they can walk. Most moms and dads recall the very first time their toddler took his or her first steps. Your little one might have started off a little wobbly, but learning to walk merely took putting one foot in front of the other. The same can be said about goals, your vision for a healthier life should not only consider rigid dieting and an unrealistic fitness regimen. Setting too high of a goal and creating too long of a list are just some of the reasons why such a small number of people actually achieve what they set out to do.
A step towards a healthier year is to trade in dieting fads and replace it with a lifestyle change. A lifestyle change not only encompasses what your body consumes to sustain energy for peak performance, but it also requires discipline and an understanding that the body ingests things in a variety of ways.
The skin quickly absorbs what touches it. In fact, it takes 26 seconds for a chemical to enter the bloodstream! Not only is the skin the largest organ, but it's also the thinnest. Since babies tend to have 40 to 60 percent thinner skin than adults, they're more susceptible to absorbing stuff that is harmful to their underdeveloped immune system. This is why we’re told to always wash our hands before touching a newborn. They’re much more prone to get rashes or get sick in general.
What's Your Baby's Disposable Nappy Made Of?
Conventional disposable nappies may contain dioxins, plus volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, and dipentene. Other harmful ingredients are pesticide residue, lotions, latex, fragrances, and GMOs. Some of the backsheet design print can even contain lead, heavy metals, and dyes. Most of these chemicals can cause more than skin irritation. Our largest organ, the skin, readily absorbs toxins, which goes directly into the bloodstream. A baby's genital area is even more sensitive and vulnerable to everything the nappy contains, intended or unintended.
Go Natural, Baby!
If better health is on your family's New Year's resolution list for 2021, your first thought might be diet and exercise. But what touches the skin is just as important as what the body is fed. This is especially true for infants and toddlers still in nappies. Don't trust just any unnatural brand laden with a list of potentially harmful chemicals to enter your baby's bloodstream via their ultra-sensitive skin and affect vital organs.
