Living in Tune with Spring

By adjusting our lifestyles to live more in sync with nature and our environment, we can restore the balance that we describe as good health.

Living according to the season is an ancient principle for good health, happiness and wellbeing. Our individual bodies are a reflection of the environment. Human beings and all living things are part of nature. We are inseparable from nature and the seasons influence our functioning. To live in balance and harmony, our lifestyles should reflect the current season's rhythms. So what we eat, what we do and how we do things should all reflect the energies of each season. By conforming to nature, we increase our chances of staying healthy and preventing disease from dictating our lifestyles.

Got Compost?

My grandmother is the consummate composter. In her home, nothing goes to waste and everything has a latent purpose. Kitchen scraps are certainly no exception. Vegetable trimmings, fruit peels, eggshells and coffee grinds are not waste, but potential fertilizer for her garden. Throwing these kitchen rejects into a bag to put on the street would be the true waste. In this rubbish, she sees opportunity and in her need to reuse, she gets a little creative. Why not give your kitchen scraps a new purpose by finding alternatives to the waste bin? But how do us “city folk” embrace this organic spirit and turn our cuisine by-products into fruitful soil? It is actually quite easy. First, learn this song. Next, let nature lead the way and the microorganisms literally do the dirty work.

Last year expats, Belgian nationals and the Flemish Forest Association accomplished something miraculous: the creation of a new forest in mere hours! If you were there, you might remember the chilly damp weather or the glee of muddy children. Surely, you would recall the sight of a barren plot of land magically filling with fresh saplings. That day, a monument to solidarity in the face of threats to our global environment was born. The tender young forest is thriving today.

Let Food be Thy Cleaner

Conventional household cleaning products often contain ingredients that are harmful to both the environment and health.

Not only are they cheap and safe, they work great too! If you have these three ingredients in your kitchen, you can easily and effectively clean your house without the need to use a lot of commercial cleaning products!

Houseplants are nice additions to homes and they do more than act as décors. Did you know that houseplants are useful for purifying the air you breathe in your home? By adding a few, choice, low maintenance house plants, we can help keep the air inside our homes clean and pure - eliminating pollutants and toxins, counteracting off-gassed chemicals and contributing to balanced internal humidity.

Conserving energy doesn't just apply to your heating and electricity. Winter is the end of an annual cycle in nature. It's also the season for quiet rest and energy conservation for our bodies. Shorter days mean less natural light and warmth – the perfect justification for going to bed earlier to get more hours of much needed sleep!

Christmas Gift Exchange: Old Items Only

Have you got things in your house that you don't need any more but which are still in good condition? Have you bought something on impulse only to realize later that you don't really want it? Do you want to get rid of clutter but can't get yourself to throw away stuff mercilessly?

Well, why not make your unwanted items the life of your Christmas party by holding an 'all-old items' gift exchange? This gift exchange can be best done by a game called White Elephant or Yankee Swap. This game is very simple yet guaranteed to be fun. This could be an additional gift exchange or even replace the gift-giving altogether.

Fake Fir: Christmas Trees

“Oh toilet brush oh toilet brush, how lovely are thy bristles...” just doesn’t have quite the same holiday ring to it as the classic carol, does it? I know I was surprised when, in the course of researching this article, I came across the humble origins of the artificial Christmas tree: in the 1930s the Addis Brush Company discovered that their toilet brush factory could produce a reasonable facsimile of a Christmas tree. The artificial tree is now firmly entrenched in the ethos of Christmas consumerism.
