Simple Actions, Big Results!

It's Holistic Living Month!

Here at the Holistic Moms Network we are celebrating our 11th year of community, sharing, and connecting. We are honored to have an opportunity to help raise awareness, but also to bring parents and others together for support.

One of the biggest deterrents to making healthy and sustainable lifestyle changes is a sense of fear and overwhelm. As parents, it is particularly easy to stop dead in our tracks when we begin to realize how many things in our environment are toxic to us and to our families. That moment of awareness is critical. Our fight or flight instincts kick in and we can throw up our hands in disgust and go about our familiar ways, or we can fight back and decide to become more informed and more empowered in order to improve our health and the health of the planet.

But it's not an easy choice nor a simple journey. Once you begin, there are many crossroads where you need to make choices based upon the information that you have and the resources available to you. Sometimes we move forward, sometimes we don't. Change can be hard.

It is important to remember that even simple, everyday changes can add up to a big difference, both in terms of health and sustainability. That's why we have created 31 Days of Holistic Living for October, Holistic Living Month. Each day we will share a practical step that you can take to live more naturally. Each action is designed to be something that you can do today and try out. You might find out that it works for you and that your new action can become a regular part of your lifestyle. Or you may want to add it to your "to do" list and see if it will work at another time.

Follow us on Facebook to see each one of our 31 Days of Holistic Living and introduce some new actions into your life. One day at a time, and the journey seems much easier to achieve. Be sure to celebrate the actions that you take on and remember that change takes time!

#HolisticMoms Twitter Parties are hosted by our Sponsors and supporters, or select guests.  If you are interested in becoming a Sponsor and taking part in our Twitter Parties, email sponsorship@holisticmoms.org.

How to Use tchat.io or TweetChat:

To access go to: http://www.tchat.io or http://tweetchat.com/  It should automatically link up to your Twitter account or prompt you to log in.  Once logged into Tweetchat, type this in the white center box: holisticmoms (the hashtag id that everyone in the party uses to participate). Then click GO and page should fill up with tweets from people using that hash tag. There should be a white message box for you to type in your tweet if you choose to do so. It will automatically attach the #holisticmoms hash tag so you don’t have to remember (but keep in mind that cuts into the 140 character limit set by Twitter). If you would like to comment on a person’s question directly then you would click on the back/reverse arrow in their tweet box. Their Twitter name will then automatically pop up in the white tweet box and you can then type in your response. If you like what someone tweeted and want to re-tweet it so your followers, who are outside the party can see it, then you can click on the second arrow to do so. Also, you can adjust the page refresh speed on how fast you want to see the responses pop up.

 

HMN Twitter parties are like HMN Chapter meetings with conversation in the form of tweets at 140 characters at a time! The party is filled with information and support; just like at a regular chapter meeting, all information provided at a #HolisticMoms 
twitter party is intended for educational purposes only and should not be used as a substitute for professional medical care. If you have or suspect that you have a serious health problem, you should consult a qualified healthcare provider. Please also note that the opinions offered by our guest speakers are not necessarily shared by the Holistic Moms Network. We offer information on a variety of topics so that you can make informed choices based on a variety of opinions and perspectives.
