Take A New Route, Get A New Perspective, Switch Up Your Routine
This entire challenge has been about changing up your routine! Today I want you to find something of your own that will take you out of your comfort zone. Even something as simple as taking a new route home, walking down a different street, ordering something new for lunch or as drastic as dying your hair blue! Whatever it is please make sure you share it with #BAAMS16 on your favorite social media format! We’d love to support your healthy changes. Try to do something new everyday if you can. If you need some tips or would like more details on how stepping out of your comfort zone is good for your health check out this article I went over on Periscope this afternoon.

I’m not a New Year’s Resolutions kind of person. The idea of waiting to change something in your life that you know is wrong is some how baffling and crippling to me.

How about a challenge to get on the right track before the New Year even get’s here! I will post a challenge item here for the next 16 days. Do one, do them all, wash, rinse, repeat! It’s up to you!

Joining us as a Band of Beauty Member or a Consultant also triggers a donation to one of the three non-profits partnered with Beautycounter. You can choose from:
Environmental Working Group (EWG) uses the power of research and information to protect public health and the environment.
Why we love them: Their Skin Cosmetic Database allows you to search over 73,000 products for hazardous ingredients. ( I don’t know what I would have done without their ample amounts of research and information over the years.)
The Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease.
Why we love them: The Breast Cancer Fund is a founding member and national coordinator of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a broad-based coalition working to eliminate dangerous chemicals from cosmetics and personal care products.
Healthy Child Healthy World empowers parents and caregivers to protect children from harmful chemicals.
Why we love them: Their easy actions and tips help families create safer environments where children can flourish.
