Here's a cool sounding group of which I would like to be a member. Except I'd get kicked out. It's the Fairfield County Holistic Moms Network and I read about them here in the Stamford Advocate recently. Wow. These moms are hard core. How do they manage to live so holistically? I try my best but I am finding it really, really difficult (more on that later).
The group leader, Risa Sloves is a lovely woman. I know because I met her once at a Fairfield County Mompreneurs meetup.
From the article: "Asked what a holistic life entails, Sloves, who has been with the group since the start, says it can mean different things to different people, but at its base it is about providing the safest, healthiest and most natural environment in which to raise a family. That means exploring organic foods, green living, holistic therapies, home schooling, natural childbirth and other topics."
Here's my question for you...how holistically do you live? With Earth Day around the corner, I'm curious about your interest in living green. Do you care? Do you even try? I know I try to eat organic when possible but it's EXPENSIVE and hard to find. Plus, sometimes it's just easier to nuke some nuggets and call it a day.
I try to clean with green products, but I find most of them well, suck. So Clorox Clean Up usually does the trick.
Finally, natural childbirth? No thanks. I Yepidurals.
Don't get me wrong, I truly care about our environment and my family's health. I just find it difficult to live holistically every day. Do you?
