With the ever-growing list of changes and concerns occurring daily within our environment, it has become common practice to learn about large corporations throughout several different industries beginning to take a more proactive approach to sustainability. Corporations such as Bank of America, Kering S.A., and Cisco Systems, Forbes Karsten Straus (2019.) have made changes in materials used, a reduction in waste, leaner ecosystems, and becoming more energy conscious. The healthcare industry has effectively embarked on this journey as well by acknowledging the importance of preventative daily measures for ourselves. However, even with acknowledgement of the importance, self-sustainability is still one of the slowest growing product areas in healthcare.
Johnson and Johnson has spearheaded this preventative- more sustainable approach in recent years, which is why Family Self Care became residents of Johnson and Johnson Innovation Labs in New York City.
At Family Self Care we pride ourselves in our sustainable approach starting with our packaging, use of organic natural solutions, and take it a step further by incorporating into our brand mission. Our mission is to help individuals become “sustainable” and to create a personally bespoke lifestyle of well-being. This proactive approach starts by making simple adjustments to your daily routine by incorporating self-care products. This ongoing process of self-care for yourself and your loved ones will assist and ensure prevention and self-improvement.
Today we break down easy tips to jumpstart your “self-sustainable” journey through prevention:
1. Don’t wait until you’re sick!
This means, use a proactive and preventative measure to help avoid health concerns such as catching the flu! Over 3 million Americans get the flu each year despite knowing when the onset of flu season is. Reviews suggest some families avoid the flu with a combination of essential oils. We recommend a age specific dose of Ravintsara.
2. Get enough sleep
Over 40 million people in the U.S. alone experience issues sleeping. Sleep is one of the most important factors in personal sustainability. Studies suggest that most individuals don’t even notice when this issue goes from one night to a chronic concern. With preventative measures such as calming tea before bed and the use of essential oils like Roman Chamomile, people often avoid the onset of these concerns.
