Get yourself a new mattress. A clean, organic mattress made of natural materials. If you have just done this, invest in some fabulous bedding that is organic. Why do I say this? Easy: mattresses and linens that have been chemically treated or created from non-organic materials have perticides and other flame retardants oin them that you literally breathe in, and soak in through your skin, as you sleep. Yep, this is a big investment. THIS article from Mercola will present you with compelling data on why I say “go truly green” with your mattress!
Create a garden this Spring, or become part of a community garden if you live in a city. This article from TLC will give you the basics of how to start a garden at home. It is utterly fulfilling to watch your own planted goodies grow right before your eyes.
Install a crazy-awesome water purifier! While your Brita might be a bit better that water straight from the tap, a really killer water purifier can rock your world. Considering our cells are mainly made up of water, the quality of water you put in your body is key. I have tried lugging jugs of alkaline water from the “water stores” in LA that are becoming quite trendy, but kids, its not that easy to do. I am a believer that a water purifier can change the way your home works. I’m calling on Dr. Mercola again to provide a beginners guide to finding an effective water filter to fit your needs at home. If you are thrilled about alkaline water benefits (and there are many, an acidic body is not a healthy body!) you can even indulge in the Bio-Mat Water Ionizer to create your own alkaline water at home!
Get yourself a fabulous fish tank. It could be a small bowl of a giant contraption, but the good fortune of fish swimming in a healthy environment is just beautiuful! Moving water and motion promote smooth, healthy and real change and good circulation in your home!

One great big veggie-green-based smoothie can flood your cells with more energy than a pot of coffee without the side effects, strenthening your immune system and helping your organs to detoxify. This roundup of smoothie and green juice recipes from Mind Body Green will get your imagination soaring!
